Why is Backup Necessary for Office 365?
The number one cause of data loss in a SaaS deployment, such as Microsoft Office 365, is accidental data deletion. In fact, about 70 percent of all lost data is due to either accidental or malicious deletion of data by end-users. Other ways that data can be lost include misconfiguration, client sync issues, and most recently the widespread presence of malware and ransomware, which can render data unusable.
Although Microsoft Office 365 provides some basic recovery options with the recycle bin and email retention, Microsoft’s primary focus within Office 365 is ensuring that service and data availability are not disrupted. It is your responsibility to protect the data that you store in the Office 365 cloud. Infrasys Cloud-to-Cloud Backup provides comprehensive, cost-effective, and scalable protection of your Office 365 data –without adding to your infrastructure costs.
Fast and Easy Recovery Options
All Office 365 data backed up to the Infrasys Cloud is accessible, searchable, and retrievable from anywhere with an Internet connection. Data can be recovered from the site level down to the individual item level. Messages, folders, or even entire mailboxes and be restored back to the original user and location, to a different location within the account, or to a completely different user account. You can also download items for offline use.
If you’re looking for a specific file or message but are unsure of its location, the search feature can be used to find the item quickly and easily. You can also recover data to a specific point in time by selecting the specific dates from a built-in calendar. Recovered data is compressed to minimise download times.
Powerful Reporting and Statistics
For IT Administrators, detailed reporting and audit logging are a key component of a backup solution. Infrasys Cloud-to-Cloud Backup provides backup status and health monitoring for each backup source. Automated email alerts are delivered after each backup to specified email recipients containing a summary of the backup and detailed information about which email messages, folders, and files were added, modified, and removed since the last backup.
On the Status page, graphs show the number of items added and amount of data backed up each day. Storage statistics and graphs detail how much data has been backed up overall and the storage efficiency, as well as how much data is actually being stored in the Infrasys Cloud after deduplication and compression. An Audit Log tracks and provides details about every action performed within the Cloud-to-Cloud Backup interface.
