A great Microsoft 365 Backup solution for peace of mind with a fantastic range of features
We are currently using it to back up the complete Microsoft 365 dataset (email, SharePoint, OneDrive) of department managers and directors, along with shared mailboxes and OneDrive or SharePoint power users. It addresses the problem of users clearing out loads of emails or files before realizing they'd deleted something they needed.
IT Manager Electrical & Electronic Manufacturing 201‑500 employees
We use it for the entire organization, and it greatly facilitates administration through the use of active directory security groups. It also facilitates the backup of the entire 365 suite, OneDrive, SharePoint, etc., in a single task which makes it easy to monitor any type of error.
If you have O365, you must at least try Veeam 365 for your on‑premises backups!
Veeam 365 Backup is being used by our company to backup all mailboxes, SharePoint sites and OneDrive accounts. We moved into the cloud back in 2017 and have always felt more comfortable having a copy of our data in‑house so this product was just the ticket!
