Why backup Office 365? 

Microsoft Office 365 enables your enterprise to work anywhere, anytime, without the need to host your own email, files and SharePoint infrastructure.

FAQs for Office 365 backup

Does Microsoft Office 365 backup your data?
There are many compliance and availability capabilities built into Microsoft Office 365, but comprehensive backup is not part of their services. Customer data is not Microsoft’s responsibility according to their Shared Responsibility Model. The data generated in Office 365 is the responsibility of the customer and needs to be protected by that customer. Industry analysis and Microsoft MVPs wildly agree that a third-party backup provider is necessary to mitigate the risk of permanent data loss from occurring in Office 365.
How can you back up your Office 365 data?
To back up Office 365 data, it is recommended that you use a third-party backup provider or service. An Office 365 backup vendor will generally be able to provide simple processes to create a backup and provide enough flexibility in their scheduling to meet any recovery point objective (RPO) or recovery time objective (RTO). Backup vendors are also able to provide fast granular recovery of the data and come with advanced search capabilities so that administrators can quickly find items to meet legal and compliance needs. 
How to back up Microsoft Teams data?
To back up Microsoft Teams, it’s important to understand how Teams works on the back end. Teams is not a self-contained application, meaning that it acts as abstraction layer that brings data together from other applications, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. It is important to back up the data from these other sources, but it’s equally important to back up configurations (i.e., settings, members and team structure). For this purpose, it is important to leverage a third-party backup provider with the latest Microsoft APIs to ensure that you can back up not only the data from key sources but the metadata and configurations for comprehensive data protection and efficient recovery.
How to recover Office 365 emails?
According to numerous surveys, one of the most common causes of data loss in the cloud is accidental deletion. With this in mind, recovering Exchange email items should be an easy process for organizations. Third-party backup vendors can offer simple restore processes, so that in just a few clicks you can recover mailboxes, messages, tasks, contacts, folders as well as hard deleted items and litigation hold items. The recovery options offered by backup vendors can vary, but in general you should work with a vendor that uses a wide range of save, send and export options so data can be recovered and get back into the hands of your users in a timely manner. You should also be able to restore to the original location or another location if needed.
