Protecting your Office 365 Data

While Microsoft takes care of the infrastructure for 365 services, it’s up to you to take care of your data.

Did you know:

  • Items in Office 365 are retained for ONLY 90 DAYS in the recycle bin
  • Any items deleted from the recycle bin are AUTOMATICALLY REMOVED AFTER 90 DAYS
  • You can only restore a deleted mailbox in Office 365 WITHIN 30 DAYS
  • Emails can be modified and deleted by users and admins, INCREASING COMPLIANCE RISKS
  • Offsite backup and point-in-time recovery are NOT SUPPORTED

92% of Office 365 commercial subscribers do not use third-party backup, often inadvertently putting the business at risk of massive data loss and regulatory fines.

How it works

We install a lightweight agent on your local server and replicate data in its native file format to create a complete backup of the server image, including OS, files, directories, and applications. Data is transferred directly over the Internet to our UK based datacentre, without the need for an appliance or local staging drive. After an initial full backup, only changed data is sent.

When restoring data becomes necessary, we simply choose from multiple server image recovery points to recover a server in the CNS Cloud as a virtual machine.

Key points to providing successful backup

  • Security: All data is encrypted as it leaves your server
  • Speed of Recovery: Our image-based process means we can recover servers within hours or minutes depending on the exact solution chosen
  • Data Integrity: It is critical that the data stored is consistent. Our software continuously checks and re-checks the multiple copies of data
  • Testing: As well as test file restores, we can restore full servers back into virtual test environments within our secure UK based datacentre
  • Monitoring: Alerts are raised instantly, 24×7, to ensure any problems are corrected as quickly as possible
  • Planning and Recovery: The perfect backup will be no use without a plan to bring it back online
