Microsoft Office 365 is an incredibly powerful tool, giving users additional flexibility and increasing productivity. While Office 365 does include primitive restore capabilities for lost data, two major issues arise when using their tools: lost data and lost time. An independent data backup separated from the app itself is necessary to avoid the most common data loss pitfalls.
Aspire now offers Office 365 SaaS Protection which is an easy and reliable way to secure your Office 365 against accidental or malicious deletion, as well as other cloud threats such as ransomware.

Data Loss Due to Inactive Licences
As one would expect, an active Office 365 license is required to access data. Unfortunately, inactive user data is permanently deleted, and there is no rollback option.
Data Loss Due to Permanent Deletion
When a SharePoint Online administrator deletes a site collection, all data will be placed in the Recycle Bin where it is kept for 93 days. At that time it is automatically deleted, with no rollback option.
Data Loss Due to Ransomware
Microsoft recommends 3rd party backup as the only way to recover from data loss associated with ransomware encryption.
Data Loss Due to App Outages
Uptime guarantees provide peace of mind… until an app outage occurs. Planning for the unexpected is key to recovering quickly should an outage occur.
Time Lost in Restoring Files
Contacting Microsoft Support for assistance with any data loss issue can be time consuming, and still may not result in restored files.
Data Loss Due to Accidental Deletion
When the Recoverable Items bin is purged, that data is deleted forever, meaning there’s a single point of failure for data loss.
