Microsoft 365 Data Protection

Data in Microsoft 365 Needs Protection that Matches Business Needs

Key business data isn’t just in databases, but is also in documents and emails. Microsoft 365 comes with built-in backups and data protection, but businesses need additional tools to achieve true data protection that keeps data safe and satisfies compliance requirements.

Limitations of Microsoft 365’s built-in data protection include:

  • Backups and archiving don’t match business policies
  • Not easily searched in e-discovery
  • Third party or non-text content may not be included
  • Backups can only be restored to Microsoft 365 cloud environment
