With Microsoft 365, Microsoft provides end users with an infinite number of services with an ever-increasing amount of storage space. This leads to a rapid increase in the amount of data in companies. Keeping control is difficult. Supported by Backup Microsoft 365, Leuchter IT Solutions AG has developed a concept that makes it easy to access your own data at any time and, most importantly, securely.
Microsoft 365 – Collaboration in the Cloud
Whether at the workplace or on the move – with Microsoft 365 Microsoft offers the familiar office applications always close at hand and highly available. With Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, as well as OneDrive, Microsoft 365 customers benefit from professional and powerful communication tools without having to provide the complex infrastructure themselves. More and more companies realise the potential of this offering and use the services of Microsoft Microsoft 365 to outsource into the cloud some business-critical applications, especially those placing high demands on the IT infrastructure. Nevertheless, with all the benefits of cloud service, many companies are not aware of the fact that Microsoft is not providing any backup for Microsoft 365.
In the world of public cloud services, the terms availability and recoverability are often confused! Backup concepts are a matter of course for on premises systems. However, outsourcing services to the public cloud often leads to the misunderstanding that they no longer have to be considered in the backup concept because they are secured in a SLA with high availability. Thereby it must be understood that by definition, availability is guaranteed when the services of a system are operating. In terms of Exchange Online, this would mean that a system is considered available as long as you can send and receive emails. But this does not mean that the recoverability is also guaranteed. If, for example, a service such as Exchange Online is outsourced to the public cloud without a backup included, various risks are no longer secured because Microsoft does not provide backup for Microsoft 365. The data can not be restored in the following scenarios:
Accidental deletion of data
Data loss as a result of targeted sabotage
Corrupt data that can not be read anymore
Data falling victim to malware (for example, encryption by ransom ware)
Data loss due to synchronisation problems
Backup Service for Microsoft 365 with Microsoft Azure
In the event of a complete Microsoft 365 data loss, Microsoft promises service and data recovery. This process may take weeks and does not guarantee 100% recovery of all data. If the rate were 99%, this would mean that 10,000 customers would still be without data for one million customers. Not a good outlook. We close this gap for you by performing a backup in a backup cycle determined by you on Microsoft Azure. In the event of a system failure, the data from Azure can be restored simply and easily.
Data backup with Microsoft Azure
The Azure platform ensures security and privacy from initial planning to the release of your solution. It sees itself as the only public cloud platform that provides continuous monitoring of security and integrity. Through encrypted communications and threat management and defense-in-depth procedures, it guarantees the security of your customer data. Microsoft has adopted the world's first standard for data protection in the cloud, ISO/IEC 27018, to protect customer data on Azure.
