Overview of Altaro Office 365 Mailbox Backups

It's common for users to think that Microsoft is backing up Office 365 data as part of their subscription, but it's important to understand that this isn't the case. Office 365 does not provide any data protection services.


Specifically, there are no native features within Office 365 for backing up mailbox data. This responsibility rests fully with the customer. Also, Microsoft doesn't provide any assistance with backups. Consequently, their company cannot help with any surprise data loss or corruption that a user might experience.

It's important to think about this in advance. There is always the real possibility of deletion, damage, or destruction of one or more mailbox items. In such cases, a robust backup solution can save the day by ensuring that you have access to a reliable backup copy. Now that you're aware of the problem, you'll be happy to know that there are quick and easy solutions to this problem, available today.
