Office 365 SaaS Protection

RSG-Datto SaaS Protection for Office 365

With more and more businesses depending on Office 365 for collaboration and business operations, the risk of potential data loss is impossible to ignore. Although data is stored on Microsoft servers, Microsoft does not take responsibility for data loss that occurs on the client’s side.

There is a widespread misconception that data created and stored in the cloud does not need to be backed up. When data is deleted or corrupted, companies face three major problems: Lost data, lost time and lost cash. Our solution provides protection from:

  • Malware damage or ransomware attacks: Microsoft recommends 3rd party backup as the only way to recover from data loss associated with ransomware encryption.
  • Accidental end-user deletion, or data overwrites
  • Malicious end-user activity
  • Lost data due to deprovisioned O365 licenses
  • External app errors (data corruption via syncing or overwriting)
