Find the Microsoft 365 Backup Service That Suits Your Company

Enterprise Support as self-service

With the Enterprise Support variant, you are responsible for administering and managing the self-service portal to which we provide access. You activate, configure and delete backup jobs, monitor and check backup processes and restore backups independently. You will also be responsible for carrying out regular restore tests.

Managed support from Arvato Systems

If you opt for the Managed Support option, Arvato Systems experts will take over managing the objects and services in the M365 Service Portal. The experts are responsible for configuring the backup and archiving policies, creating backup users and assigning them, and generally monitoring and checking the backup processes. If required, the experts can also assist with data recovery.

Questions and Answers About the Backup Service for Microsoft 365

  • A backup service is an external service that regularly creates backup copies of data to be restored in the event of data loss or damage. All data is backed up the first time our backup solution is activated. If you use the Microsoft 365 backup service from Arvato Systems, you decide how often the backups are created.

  • Backup as a Service is a service that supports companies with data backup and recovery. As an externally managed service, the IT service provider takes over the backup tasks so companies can concentrate on their core activities.

  • Even if data is stored in the cloud with Microsoft 365, it is not automatically protected against data loss. When using a cloud-based SaaS solution such as Microsoft 365, each customer is responsible for the integrity of their data. Data deleted intentionally or unintentionally in Microsoft 365 is transferred to a recycle bin, from which the files are automatically deleted after 30 or a maximum of 93 days, depending on the product. Restoration is then no longer possible. Additional protection against unwanted manipulation of Microsoft 365 data requires the company-wide use of specific Microsoft 365 backup procedures. Using a backup solution with integrated ransomware protection, anomalies can be detected early on, and cyberattacks on archive data can be prevented. A backup solution can also be used to restore data quickly and easily.

  • One advantage of storing your Microsoft 365 data with Google is that in the event of problems with Microsoft, the data is backed up with another provider, providing an additional layer of security. You can also log in to both platforms at any time and have access to your data.
