How to backup Office 365 mailbox items successfully
When moving to Microsoft Office 365, most customers expect that native Office 365 email backup and recovery tools will be sufficient to backup Office 365 mailbox data. Unfortunately, there may be significant data recovery gaps with built-in Office 365 backup solutions and organizations may not be covered for all types of data loss or corruption.
To adequately backup Office 365 mailbox data, users and IT teams need fast, flexible solutions that can protect against data loss, corruption and malicious intent. Office 365 offers zero native backup recovery flexibility for user data, and end-user restore is limited and requires help from IT. And for all its benefits, Office 365 is vulnerable to the same threats as any cloud platform, including technical failure and human error that can lead to outages, downtime and data loss.
To truly protect vital email assets, organizations must backup Office 365 mailbox items with third-party solutions that provide more powerful functionality and protection. That's exactly what thousands of organizations worldwide achieve with Office 365 archive mailbox capabilities from Mimecast.
