Microsoft Office 365 enables your organization to work anywhere, anytime, without the need to host your own email, files and content management infrastructure. Even though Microsoft hosts the infrastructure, this doesn’t replace your responsibility of maintaining a backup of your business-critical Office 365 data.
With Office 365, it’s your data, you control it and it is your responsibility to protect it. Read this solution brief to find out how Lenovo and Veeam® Backup for Microsoft Office 365 can ensure your organization’s critical data is always protected and accessible.
Today, more state and local governments are adopting cloud-based productivity tools such as Microsoft Office 365. Relying on Microsoft’s native backup capabilities isn’t enough to protect organizations from data loss. Instead, a third-party backup solution is critical to IT success.

Microsoft Office 365 has introduced new levels of availability and resiliency for their many Federal customers. But while Office 365 makes your data highly available, native retention policies don’t protect you from insider threat, accidental deletion, or malware. Veeam protects your Exchange Online, OneDrive, and SharePoint Online data from loss, restoring assurance that your data is safe. Additionally, Veeam Backup for O365 allows you to locate backup copies on-premises or in the cloud, ensuring compliance by guaranteeing that you always have custody of your critical data.
Data management and protection services alleviate many of the complexities that institutions face today, while ensuring confidence in data availability and security.
However, Higher Education institutions must take a holistic view of how data is managed and protected in the cloud — across all segments, including faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Especially in light of the rapidly evolving security landscape, colleges and universities must consider: • Recovering from unexpected data loss or disaster, • Defending from malicious attack such as Ransomware, and • Protecting ALL their cloud-stored data
In today’s ever-changing, increasingly distributed workplace, we now see more employees working in remote environments. In fact, in the past 12 years, there’s been a 159% growth in remote working with over 4.3 million remote workers in the US alone. With advances in technology, a remote workforce can operate in a highly productive and efficient manner. However, workstations, laptops, desktops and tablets contain highly valuable information that needs to get backed up in case of data loss, corruption or disaster. Does your company have a backup strategy for those remote devices? Veeam® offers many tools to help protect and optimize your remote workforce while keeping you in control.
The best guide for protecting Microsoft Office 365 data
The role IT professionals play in a landscape where data loss, security breaches, and invasion of privacy are the new normal has never been more critical.
This book addresses the data security challenges in today’s computing landscape by outlining the out-of-the-box security features in Office 365 and uncovering the gaps that require action to achieve an effective backup and recovery strategy.
Microsoft Office 365 is the largest solution for digital collaboration today. Office 365 customers can choose to connect to their on-premises workloads and benefit from a seamless user experience — even when moving between different environments — creating a hybrid platform. Office 365 has a high adoption rate by businesses of all sizes.
While Office 365 offers an undisputed flexibility with the integration of several solutions, it deeply focuses on the infrastructure management rather than data management. The responsibility for data management and its Availability still belongs to the respective owners leveraging the Office 365 services.
In fact, Office 365 data center uptime refers to the infrastructure rather than data hosted in the data centers. Infrastructure uptime does not include cases where the data center itself can provide an effective way to recover from:
Data loss / corruption
Rogue apps / insider threats
