Nine reasons why
you need to back up
your Microsoft 365

Did you know that protecting your Microsoft data
is your responsibility?

As a Tempus MSP client we can do it for you.

Why backup Microsoft Office 365

what can happen if you don’t

Microsoft 365 offers a virtual iteration of traditional Microsoft Office software, featuring additional tools such as Outlook, SharePoint, Exchange, OneDrive, and Teams. As a cloud service, it enables users to access their data anytime and from anywhere.

What is the risk?

While Microsoft 365 continues to gain market share, it is important to note that this platform does not provide out-of-the box backup and data recovery solutions. This means that if your account is compromised and you lose your data, you will not be able to recover it. What makes matters even worse is the challenge ahead to get your business up and running again.

Can Tempus Backup My Office 365 Account Data for Me?

Yes, we can. As your IT Managed Service Provider (MSP) Tempus can securely back-up your data to an external location. If you lose access to your account or your data is compromised, we can act quickly to get you up and going again with minimal impact to your business and clients.

At Tempus we can do if for you starting from $5 per month for MSP clients.

Is your Microsoft Office 365 vulnerable?

9 reasons it might be!


Accidental data deletion

IT teams and even individual users may delete various OneDrive documents or emails with large attachments — especially if they seem to be old or no longer relevant. Without an effective backup solution, these steps can be permanent — presenting a real challenge if they need this data in the future.


Mismanaging duplicate files

Most companies create a high number of duplicate files as part of their normal collaboration process. Yet when they attempt to delete earlier versions or true duplicates, they may accidently remove the wrong files.


Malicious actions

While rare, it is possible that unhappy employees may sabotage or delete critical files, and by the time the damage is discovered, it may be too late to recover them.


Phishing and

ransomware attacks

Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and are developing more realistic emails that may trick unsuspecting employees. All it takes is a single click for them to gain access to either exfiltrate data or hold it hostage as part of a ransomware attack.


Limited storage and/or

email retention

When employees leave, IT administrators should back up Microsoft 365 data and reuse the license. Yet this doesn’t always happen, leading to the potential for even more lost data.


Third-party application

illicit consent attacks

Third-party applications may lead to illicit consent grant attacks that can steal valuable data.


Lost or stolen devices

Many companies — especially small to medium-sized businesses — allow employees to use their own devices. While this model saves money and makes things easier for employees, it can lead to data issues if the devices are lost or stolen.


Employees overwriting data

Accidents happen. But in the case of employees overwriting vital data, these accidents can result in real issues for the company — especially if it has no way to restore business-critical data.


Limited backup features

and capabilities

While there are ways to back up Microsoft Outlook emails and other
Microsoft 365 data, these processes still tend to be time consuming
and tedious — not ideal for busy MSPs or IT professionals.
