Continuous data protection
A Microsoft 365 backup solution that provides continuous data protection (CDP) will actively monitor your data and automatically capture modifications in a near-real-time manner. Unlike normal incremental scans or snapshots, which happen at scheduled intervals, CDP is always running to capture any changes as they occur.
Features such as CDP are useful for augmenting your Microsoft 365 backup strategy by applying it to high-priority site collections and/or users to ensure the continuity and integrity of mission-critical data.
Archive storage for former employees’ data
Today’s workers are increasingly transient, which leaves IT dealing with a data challenge when it comes to archiving inactive Microsoft 365 user accounts’ data. The ability to do so has become particularly important with the emergence of compliance regulations such as the European Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
Finding a backup solution that provides automatic archiving of Microsoft 365 mailboxes, OneDrive and SharePoint data, and Teams means you can avoid unnecessary licensing costs when someone leaves your organization.
Plus, with a backup solution that offers flexibility around long-term retention, you can restore user data in the future.
It’s not enough to simply protect your data from loss due to mistakes or software crashes. Today, you also need to protect your data from being stolen, maliciously deleted, or modified. To protect your data from being stolen or even viewed by anyone, you need a Microsoft 365 backup solution that offers end-to-end data encryption. This approach means any data in transit is encrypted and your backup data is encrypted when it is stored.
To protect your data against unwanted deletion and modification, you need a Microsoft 365 backup and archive solution that uses immutable storage for your data, such as some form of write once, read many (WORM) storage.
