Data Protection for Office 365 Now Available for SharePoint Online

We’re thrilled to announce today the addition of backup and restore capabilities for SharePoint Online to Spanning Backup for Office 365.

In addition to providing cloud-to-cloud data protection for Mail, Calendar, and OneDrive, we now provide backup and data restore for SharePoint document library contents in Team Sites, Group Sites, and Microsoft Teams.

“SharePoint Online is a vital productivity tool for collaboration across enterprise teams,” said Jeff Erramouspe, CEO of Spanning. “By extending Spanning’s automatic and easy to use backup and restore features to SharePoint Online, we’re helping our customers protect even more of the data that’s critical to the enterprise.”

Unfortunately, even with security, cloud applications are at risk to serious and permanent data loss caused by accidental or malicious user behavior, ransomware attacks,  administrative misconfigurations and sync errors. SharePoint is no different, and its complexity can lead to increased risks of user caused data loss. It also makes its data extremely difficult—if not impossible—to recover without a third-party backup and recovery solution.

In a recent report, Gartner agrees that a backup tool is necessary. “Investment in a third-party backup tool for OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online provides more-secure protection against insider threats and offers consistent recovery points for easier, faster and more flexible recovery options.”
