Ransomware and Data
Protection for Microsoft 365
Ensure that you can access, control, and most importantly protect the
data you entrust to the cloud.
Why have Backups?
Data loss due to ransomware
Some of the most high-profile ransomware attacks that have occurred recently have been in Office 365 environments. Encrypting your data and preventing you from accessing your data.
Data loss due to inactive licenses
As one would expect, an active Office 365 license is required to access O365 data. Unfortunately, inactive or deactivated, user data is permanently deleted, and there is no rollback option.
Data loss due to permanent deletion
When a SharePoint Online administrator deletes a site collection, all data will be placed in the Recycle Bin where it is kept for 93 days. At that time it is automatically and permanently deleted, and there is no rollback option.
Data loss when restoring files
When restoring older files from a SharePoint backup, the restore is targeted at the same URL. This means a restore overwrites whatever data currently exists in the site collection, and there is no rollback option.
Time lost in restoring files
Contacting Microsoft Support for assistance with any data loss issue can be time-consuming, and still may not result in restored files.
What can be restored from a backup?
- All files (including One Note) and folders with the structure intact.
- Contacts: All contact information (excluding photos)
- Calendar: Events (including recurrence, attendees, notes), attachments and any calendars owned by your users.
- All emails, attachments, notes and folder structure.
- Primary, custom, group and team site collections
- Custom generic site lists
- Folder structure
- Document libraries and sets
- Site assets, templates, and pages
