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. While retention policies are important, they do not substitute for a true backup which should capture configurations/settings/security/etc. that are focused beyond the content level.

Best Backup & Recovery Practices

Protecting your organization’s work and data across Microsoft Office 365 is crucial to reducing risk and saving money in the event of deletion, corruption, or ransomware attacks. A rule of thumb all organizations should follow is the 3-2-1 rule. This means having 3 copies of your data on 2 different pieces of media, and 1 of which should be off-site. A third-party solution can help organizations achieve having 1 copy outside of Microsoft 365. Here is a compiled list of best practices every organization should be considering when choosing a backup and recovery solution.
