Microsoft maintains a shared responsibility model for Office 365. They are responsible for maintaining platform uptime while you are responsible for the protection and long-term retention of Office 365 data.
Why Office 365 backup?
Office 365 is an integrated, cloud-powered platform of productivity applications and services that increase collaboration and grow your business.
Office 365 contains native data protection tools that require users to have extensive knowledge on versioning and recycle bins along with the different default retention policies for each application. Relying on these tools places your organization’s data and projects at risk from:
- Accidental data loss caused by human error
- Deletion of data by employees before departing the organization
- Proliferation of ransomware assisted by file sharing and synchronization
- Data loss and non-compliance penalties as a result of gaps in data retention policies
