CloudCover 365

An Enterprise Microsoft 365 Backup Service

In today’s business landscape, Microsoft 365 (previously known as Office 365) applications such as Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams are essential tools for any organisation. Losing access to the data stored within Microsoft 365 would bring most businesses to a standstill.

Enhancing the power of world-leading Veeam 365 backup software, CloudCover 365 provides a simple, yet comprehensive way to backup and protect critical Microsoft 365 applications against data loss.

Whether you’re an Enterprise organisation or a Managed service provider, CloudCover 365 will help you protect and manage the continuity of a business and its data. With the increase in hybrid work environments, Ransomware attacks, and changes in data legislation, the demand for Microsoft 365 backup and data protection has never been greater. 

Why do you need to Backup Microsoft 365?

Data is NOT protected

Microsoft 365 data is not automatically protected by Microsoft.

Microsoft recommends a third-party backup.

Security threats

Insider threats and external security breaches, such as Ransomware can be catastrophic - organisations need to have a recovery plan in place.

Mistakes

Human error is one of the biggest causes of data loss. Mistakes happen every day and recovery from accidental deletion is essential.

Compliance

Legal obligations and compliance vary, but data accessibility is essential across all industries.

CloudCover 365 can help.

What does CloudCover 365 protect?

CloudCover 365 offers comprehensive Microsoft 365 backup for the following services:

Microsoft 365 offers much more than a set of Office applications, providing tools that help to manage an entire business estate. As part of this, a Microsoft 365 tenancy comprises of over 250 configurable items stored within Azure.

This configuration data plays a crucial role in defining and maintaining the state of an environment, ultimately governing how Microsoft 365 works within an organisation. While there is a strong focus on protecting application data, such as Exchange and OneDrive, to recover fully after an outage, these configurations also need to be protected. 

CloudCover Guardian for Azure, available as part of the Enterprise plus subscription, enables organisations to proactively identify insider threats and to Backup and restore these critical configurations after an outage.

CloudCover Guardian for Azure protects:

Security groups

User accounts

Access privileges

Group settings

Microsoft Exchange is more than just email.

Microsoft Exchange stores a vast amount of critical business data, including emails, contacts, calendars, and tasks. Losing this data can be catastrophic for any organisation, resulting in lost productivity, missed deadlines, damaged reputation, and financial losses.

Calendars

Emails

Tasks

Notes

Contacts

Public folders

End-user self restore available

Microsoft doesn’t store Teams data in a dedicated folder, as many would expect it to and this can make backup complicated.

Instead, the data interlaces itself with other services across the Microsoft 365 suite. For example, if a file is sent through Teams directly to another person it’s stored within their OneDrive. If a file is sent to multiple users, it’s then stored in a SharePoint document library. 

Protecting data within this intertwining folder structure can often be confusing, but CloudCover 365 is purpose-built to protect data across the entire Teams data set.
