Microsoft 365 Backup

Compliance, Liability and a piece of mind so you can sleep better

If your organization uses Microsoft Office 365, you might think that there is no risk of your data ever being lost. After all, Office 365 is a widely used platform that’s financially backed by Microsoft and has a guaranteed 99.9% uptime. However, there are important reasons to copy your data to a separate vault that resides within your area of control.

Why back up your MS 365 data?


Many industry regulations impose strict document and email retention requirements which Office 365 does not accommodate by default. Moreover, if your Office 365 subscription is cancelled, all your data is automatically deleted after 90 days – which violates several industry policies.


If your data is lost, Microsoft’s liability is limited to $5,000 or your last 12 months of subscription fees – but your level of risk and liability is virtually unlimited. Backing up your data to a separate cloud environment mitigates this risk.

Audit Rights 

Office 365 provides you with no audit rights – preventing you from showing the physical location where your data is stored if required in an audit. Maintaining a backup copy in a secure and auditable location may be an acceptable solution.

Vendor Lock-in

Maintaining a backup copy of your Office 365 data makes it much easier to consider migrating to another vendor’s office productivity service.
