Back-up, Buddy!


(1 minute read)

It’s time to make sure your Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) data is protected…

It’s a common misconception that your Microsoft 365 data is automatically backed-up by MS.

But it isn’t.

Unfortunately, lots of organisations have fallen foul of this issue, because whilst Microsoft provides a great service for their customers in so many ways, this isn’t their primary focus.

They’re great at managing the Microsoft 365 infrastructure and maintaining uptime to your users, but they see their role as empowering YOU with the responsibility for your Microsoft 365 data.

As Microsoft themselves state: 

“With Microsoft 365, it’s your data — you control it — and it is your responsibility to protect it.”

What’s the solution?

Here at Minerva, we have a ready-made solution in the form of Veeam® Backup for Microsoft 365 which eliminates the risk of losing access and control over your Microsoft 365 data, including Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams.

The latest version (v6) of Veeam® Backup for Microsoft 365 is now available, with enhanced capabilities including self-service restore portal and backup copy.

Installing Veeam® Backup for Microsoft 365 is quick and easy, and ensures that your data is always protected and accessible, enabling you to:

  • Protect your Microsoft 365 data from accidental deletion, security threats and retention policy gaps 
  • Quickly restore individual Microsoft 365 items and files with industry-leading recovery flexibility 
  • Meet legal and compliance requirements with efficient eDiscovery of Microsoft 365 backup items

Veeam is the market leader in Office 365 data protection, with over 13 million users protected worldwide.

We understand that no-one wants to leave themselves exposed, but we all want effective and cost-effective protection too, and we believe this is the best value solution.

Veeam’s licensing is simple: you need one Veeam license for each Microsoft 365 user. The only other decision is whether to take out a 1-, 3- or 5-year contract. The longer the contract, the more you can save.
