Microsoft does not back up and recover Office 365 emails

Many Office 365 subscribers mistakenly believe that their data is fully backed up by Microsoft as part of their subscription. However, this is not the case: Microsoft does not backup Office 365.


Microsoft cannot help with unexpected data loss or damage

  • Microsoft is responsible for providing the necessary infrastructure and ensuring that Office 365 works. But it’s the customer’s responsibility to protect its Office 365 data from:
    • human error (such as deleted items)
    • malware and hacker attacks
    • malicious user actions
    • and so on.
  • Microsoft doesn’t provide native options to back up Office 365 mailboxes. It provides some very basic archiving, retention and recovery options, but cannot guarantee full and speedy restoration of data loss.
Problems with accessing and searching email data

By backing up all a company’s mailboxes into one location, this data can be protected and stored centrally. This also provides easy access, searching and recovery. WardTech Office 365 Backup comes with an online console that enables central management and monitoring of all customer Office 365 email backups.

We provide customers with mail backup services

Without a solution like WardTech Office 365 Backup, there is no easy way for users to back up emails for customers running Office 365, or to recover lost or damaged mailboxes or emails. This is where WardTech’s cloud backup solution saves the day.
