One of our more exciting announcements in the past few months has been the addition of Sharepoint Online data backup to the Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup. This was announced in October of 2016, along with several other enhancements of Barracuda Essentials for Office 365.
Microsoft SharePoint Online backup provides granular backup and recovery options with the ability to restore individual files that have been deleted, corrupted, or encrypted by ransomware. With this release, there is no need to perform a complete a full recovery of the SharePoint environment. This function is available in Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup and Barracuda Essentials for Office 365.
The Sharepoint Online backup feature allows IT managers the ability to preserve SharePoint data beyond the default 14-day retention window, and does not cut into storage quotas. It also offers access to individual files in the Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 user interface, which makes it fast and easy to restore lost, corrupt, or encrypted files. Items can be restored back directly into SharePoint Online from the backups of Document Libraries, Site Assets, and Picture Libraries within both Team Sites and Public Sites.
This type of data protection is critical now that ransomware is so prevalent in the connected world.
