Microsoft Announces New Backup Recommendations for Microsoft 365


Did you know that Microsoft 365 does not natively have a full coverage backup solution? It has something called retention policies. Microsoft 365's retention policies are a set of automated rules that help Admins comply with the regulatory guidelines, manage corporate data and save costs on storage. Office 365 retention policy should not be confused with backup, archive, deletion protection, or retention labels.

In fact, Microsoft has updated their service level agreement to clearly state that they recommend all customers leverage a third-party to backup your Microsoft 365 data. Without an external copy of your Microsoft 365 tenancy, you have gaps in your data protection policy. This is something that ANP can easily and affordably help you resolve.

Why backup your Microsoft 365 data with ANP?

  • Maintain complete copies of critical business digital assets to ensure protection from hackers, encryption malware, accidental deletion and more
  • Establish an outside copy of your entire Microsoft 365 tenancy, providing a level of protection that Microsoft can’t provide on their own
  • Quick and easy recovery of your Microsoft 365 data in the event of a ransomware attack or other disastrous event
  • Gain protection from corruption, external cyberattacks or an insider threat
  • Easily migrate data from one tenant to another in the event of a company acquisition or merger
