Office-365-Backup-Recovery-Strategies_Metallic_Blog-Header

Your Office 365 data is critical to the success of your business.

Are you protecting it appropriately?
____________________________________________________________________

Modern Data Management & Backup Strategies

Interlink has seen many organizations fall behind in their data management and backup strategy – and thus incur risks. Organizations must look at not only data centers and endpoints, but also at their Office 365 data to ensure their environment is properly protected and mitigating risk. Microsoft Office 365 monthly active usage is continually growing across the world – and e-mail, calendar items, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams files cannot be overlooked for businesses to be adequately prepared for backup/recovery scenarios.

Microsoft provides native backup/recovery capabilities, though third-party solutions can offer extended data protection and granular recovery options - for SLA (Service Level Agreement) compliance and rapid recovery from deletion, corruption, or attack. Best practices for data protection include having multiple copies of your data (housed outside source and production environments), proper retention policies, and a data strategy that doesn’t solely rely on on-premises technology. Many organizations need to keep data longer for industry requirements, legal reasons, and to meet compliance or regulatory bodies.
