Take control of your data with the help of Veeam

Get total access, control and protection of your Office 365 data

Protecting on-premises data is a no-brainer. But why do so many organizations overlook protecting cloud data?

Microsoft provides powerful services within Office 365 – but a comprehensive backup of your Office 365 data is not one of them.

Veeam® Backup for Microsoft Office 365 eliminates the risk of losing access and control over your Office 365 data including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams – so that your data is always protected and accessible.

Total control over your Office 365 data

Microsoft Office 365 enables your enterprise to work anywhere, anytime, without the need to host your own email, files and SharePoint infrastructure. Even though Microsoft hosts the infrastructure, this doesn’t replace your responsibility of maintaining a backup of your business-critical Office 365 data.

With Office 365, it’s your data — you control it — and it is your responsibility to protect it.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 gives you the power to securely backup Office 365 and:

  • Protect your Office 365 data from accidental deletion, security threats and retention policy gaps
  • Quickly restore individual Office 365 email, files and sites with industry-leading recovery flexibility
  • Meet legal and compliance requirements with efficient eDiscovery of Office 365 items

Backup Office 365 SharePoint, email, and files to any location

A backup, in its simplest form, is making a copy of your data and storing it independently from the source. This mitigates risks and ensures peace of mind that you’ll be able to restore when needed.

  • Retrieve Office 365 Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams data from a cloud-based instance of Office 365 and uniquely backup the data as often as every five minutes in Microsoft’s native format — an archive database based on Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), also known as the Jet Blue database.
  • Backup Exchange and SharePoint on-premises reducing the impact to your datacenter and allowing YOU to set the frequency and timing of your backups.
  • Store backups in the location of your choice — on-premises, in a hyperscale public cloud (i.e., Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services) or with a local service provider.
  • Protect data posted and shared with Microsoft Teams chats, files and sites, as Teams data is journaled into Exchange Online and SharePoint Online.

Restore Office 365 with industry-leading recovery flexibility

Never settle for less than reliable, granular restore of Office 365 mailboxes and emails, SharePoint sites, documents, libraries and lists, as well as OneDrive for Business accounts, files and folders, in a few simple clicks.

Built-in Veeam Explorers™ for Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business enable:

  • Quick search and granular recovery of individual objects — including Microsoft Teams data — residing in a protected copy of your Office 365 backup
  • Direct restore of Office 365 items through a number of industry — leading ways, giving you ultimate restore flexibility

Leverage powerful eDiscovery of Office 365 data

Without an easily accessible copy of your data, retrieving Office 365 email for regulatory or compliance reasons can be costly, time consuming and a major disruption to your business.

With Veeam, you can leverage the familiar, advanced search capabilities and the flexible recovery and export options to perform eDiscovery on Office 365 mailboxes, emails, files or sites— just as easily as you would with a traditional on-premises data backup.

Meet Office 365 security and compliance requirements

Security and compliance concerns are big drivers for the need to backup Office 365 email and other Office 365 data. With an Office 365 backup, you can:

  • Store data based on long-term retention policies for regulatory or compliance needs.
  • Ensure you recover exactly what you need — no more, no less — with granular advanced search and find functionality.
  • Increase security for Office 365 backup data with multi-factor authentication.

Efficiently scale and minimize overhead

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 delivers unmatched scalability, providing a multi-repository, multi-tenant architecture, which:

  • Enables protection of larger Office 365 deployments with a single installation, including automated scale-out of the repository to eliminate issues with maximum file size limits.
  • Empowers service providers to deliver Office 365 backup servicessearch and find functionality.
  • Minimizes overhead, improves recovery time and reduces costs with comprehensive automation via PowerShell and RESTful API support for all functionality, as well as self-service restore for service providers’ customers.

Unified on-premises and Office 365 backup

Ensuring control of Office 365 email and SharePoint data requires a solution that can cover both Office 365 and any on-premises Exchange and SharePoint instances that you may have. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 allows you to:
  • Protect hybrid email and SharePoint deployments.
  • Migrate mailbox data between on-premises Exchange and Office 365
  • Enable creation of consistent backups of Office 365 data to streamline eDiscovery and item-level restores
  • Perform backups of unique and localized versions of Office 365, including support for Office 365 U.S. Government (DoD and non-DoD), Office 365 Germany and Office 365 China

Veeam Data Protection for Sharepoint

Microsoft Office 365 adoption is bigger than ever. When Veeam introduced Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 in November 2016, it became an immense success and Veeam has continued building on top of that. When we released version 1.5 in 2017, we added automation and scalability improvements which became a tremendous success for service providers and larger deployments. Today, Veeam is announcing v2 which takes our solution to a completely new level by adding support for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft OneDrive for Business. Download it right now!

Data protection for SharePoint

By adding support for SharePoint, Veeam extends its granular restore capabilities known from the Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint into Office 365. This allows you to restore individual items – documents, calendars, libraries and lists – as well as a complete SharePoint site when needed. With the new release, Veeam can also help you back up your data if you are still in the migration process and are still using Microsoft SharePoint on premises or running in a hybrid scenario.

Data protection for OneDrive for Business

The most requested feature was support for OneDrive for Business as more and more companies are using it to share files, folders and OneNote books internally. With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft OneDrive for Business, you can granularly restore any item available in your OneDrive folder (including Microsoft OneNote notebooks). You have the option to perform an in-place restore, restore to another OneDrive user or another folder in OneDrive, export files as an original or zip file, and if you get hit by a ransomware attack and your complete OneDrive folder gets encrypted Veeam can perform a full restore as well.

Enhancements

Besides the introduction of new platform support, there are also several enhancements added.
Major ease-of-use and backup flexibility improvements with a newly redesigned job wizard for easier and more flexible selection of Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online objects. Making it easier than ever to set-up, search and maintain visibility into your Office 365 data. Granularly search, scale and perform management of backup jobs for tens-of-thousands of Office 365 users!

Restore data located in Microsoft Teams! You can protect Microsoft Teams when the underlying storage of the Teams data is within SharePoint Online, Exchange Online or OneDrive for Business. While data can be protected and restored, the Teams tabs and channels cannot. After restoring the item, it can however be reattached manually.

Compare items with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange. It is now possible to perform a comparison on items with your production mailbox to see which properties are missing and only restore those without restoring the full file.

As with the 1.5 release, everything is also available for automation by either leveraging PowerShell or the Restful API which now fully supports OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

Another enhancement is the possibility to change the GUI color as you like. This option made its way into Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 after being introduced in Veeam Backup & Replication.

Starting with version 2, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is now able to automatically check for updates, so you can rest assured you are always up to date.

And finally, the log collection wizard has been updated as it now allows you to collect logs for support in case you run into an issue, as well as configure extended logging for all components.

Breached Records More Than Doubled in H1 2018, Reveals Breach Level Index

Break Down of the 2018 Breach Level Index Stats:

• 18,525,816 records compromised every day
• 771,909 records compromised every hour
• 12,865 records compromised every minute
• 214 records compromised every second

Data breaches had a field day in 2018. According to the Breach Level Iindex, a database compiled by Gemalto to track publicly reported data breaches disclosed in news media reports, 2018 is one of the only years where more than two billion records were compromised in publicly disclosed data breaches. The only other year to do so was 2013 due to the exposure of all three billion Yahoo users’ accounts.

Gemalto has analyzed the Breach Level Index during the first half of 2018 and the findings are truly staggering. In just six months, the system tracked more than 3.3 billion breached data files. This figure represents a 72 percent increase over the first half of 2017.

The Breach Level Index didn’t contain as many reported incidents in the first half of 2018 as it did over the same period last year with 944 reported security events during the reporting period compared to 1,162 breaches reported in the first half of 2017.

Break Down of the 2018 Breach Level Index Stats:

• Identity theft yet again the top data breach type: Identity theft was responsible for nearly four billion records compromised in the first half of the year, which represents growth of more than a thousand percent compared to the previous year. During the same time frame, the number of incidents involving identity theft decreased by a quarter.

• Malicious outsiders and accidental loss the most prevalent sources of data breach: The number of events involving malicious outsiders accounted for 56 percent and 34 percent of all data breaches, respectively.

• Social media weathered the greatest number of compromised records: Facebook wasn’t the only social giant that suffered a data breach in the first half of 2018. Twitter also experienced a security incident where a software glitch potentially exposed the login credentials of its 330 million users. In total, data breaches compromised 2.5 billion records stored by social media giants.

• Incidents in healthcare and financial services declined: The number of compromised files and data breaches decreased for both healthcare and financial services. These declines at least in part reflected the introduction of new national regulations that help regulate health data and financial transactions.

• North America led the way in publicly disclosed data breaches: This region represented more than 97 percent of data records compromised in the first half of 2018. In total, there were 559 events in the region, a number which represented 59 percent of all data breaches globally in the first half of 2018.

New Data Privacy Regulations Take Effect:

In the wake of new data protection regulations, reporting of security incidents is on the rise. Following the passage of the Australian Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) received 305 data breach notifications by the end of the second quarter of 2018. This number is nearly triple the amount of the number submitted to the OAIC for the entire 2016-2017 fiscal year. Such growth in data breach reporting will likely continue through the rest of 2018 and beyond under GDPR and New York’s Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies.
