CloudCover Guardian for Azure

You're already protecting Microsoft 365 data, but what about the configurations that bind it together? Track and recover your Microsoft 365 environment, including Entra ID, Intune, Exchange, SharePoint configurations, and more.

Water without a container is just a puddle

While many organisations understand the importance of backing up data within Microsoft 365, they don’t realise that the configurations binding the data in place also need to be protected.

Microsoft 365 relies on over 250 unique configurations behind the scenes, acting as an instruction manual for your entire tenancy. This manual dictates how data can be securely interacted within an organisation, with entire chapters dedicated to Entra ID, Exchange, Intune, OneDrive and more.

Could you restore your Microsoft 365 without a manual?

When the unthinkable leads to major Microsoft 365 data loss, you manage to recover the files and emails for all your users, but not the configurations. You have no idea who has access to shared emails, distribution groups, or what access policies were in place. Each of these configurations now needs to be remembered, and manually recreated for each user… but while you restore them, what are the consequences? Do users now have access to confidential information? You’ve spent years perfecting your security policies, how quickly could you recreate them?

CloudCover Guardian for Azure, as part of CloudCover, enables organisations to safeguard their entire Microsoft 365 Backup experience for a smooth, holistic recovery when disaster strikes.

Why backup your Microsoft 365 configurations?

Entra ID

Entra ID (formally Azure AD) has become the gatekeeper for many modern businesses. 

Not only does Entra ID control access to your Microsoft tenancy, it also safeguards access to a range of essential business tools.

Capture configuration changes within your organisation while protecting Conditional Access policies, Attribute sets and more.


A fast return to "Business as usual"

Take charge of your data security and ensure full Microsoft 365 continuity in the event of a security threat.

From Ransomware to insider attacks and accidental deletion, avoid rebuilding user accounts, permissions and rules after a disruption or data loss incident.
