Cross-user recovery / Cross-tenant recovery
Do you need to quickly recover all data sets from one user to another? It is possible with the cross-user recovery feature. It is super useful if your employees rotate often and you want to avoid any malicious behavior of your former employee or prepare your new ones for their duties faster.
Intentional deletion? Who might do this? Well, believe us or not but angry, unsatisfied employee or former employee may have a lot of reasons to delete your data by intent. Access to files and contacts changes quickly, so it can be hard to keep an eye on it.
Or maybe you need to migrate or quickly restore all organization’s Microsoft 365 data? Take advantage of cross-tenant recovery and restore all data directly to the new M365 organization.
Meeting shared responsibility model
Microsoft 365 users can rely on Microsoft to provide a reliable productivity suite, but according to the “Shared responsibility model” data protection is the user’s concern and duty. So, users need to make sure their data is accessible, available, protected, and recoverable at any moment, from any point-in-time to make sure no disaster can cause data loss, downtime, and financial losses.
To protect data effectively, companies should employ processes of data backup and disaster recovery. Microsoft does not offer these processes under the shared responsibility model but they are crucial and necessary to cover all user’s share in this model. That is why even Microsoft itself recommends companies to have reliable third-party backup software.
