Share post

A simple and flexible Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution extends data backup and ransomware recovery functionality for Microsoft 365, reducing downtime in the event of a ransomware attack.

Veeam® Software has expanded its partnership with Microsoft. Through Cirrus by Veeam, Veeam is making it easier for customers to protect Microsoft 365. The new BaaS capabilities leverage the power and reliability of the industry-leading Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 solution, as well as the track record and experience of nearly 18 million secured Microsoft 365 users.

Quickly recover important data

Veeam recently introduced its new integration with Microsoft 365 Backup Storage at Microsoft Ignite. The live demo demonstrated how large amounts of Microsoft 365 data can be restored quickly and efficiently to minimize downtime after a ransomware attack or other data loss threat.

“Microsoft 365 Backup Storage provides fast, point-in-time recovery of data stored in Microsoft 365 environments to help customers respond to emerging cybersecurity threats,” said Richard Riley, general manager, low code and content services at Microsoft. “The integration with Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 provides our mutual customers with the highest level of resiliency with rapid backup and recovery of critical business data so Microsoft 365 users can stay productive.”

Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365

Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is the leading backup solution for Microsoft 365 and is used by nearly 18 million users. This acceptance reflects customers' shared responsibility to secure their critical Microsoft 365 data across all applications, including Microsoft Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft Teams.

Customers can now choose from several options for how they want to use Veeam and manage Microsoft 365:

  • The new Cirrus by Veeam offers a simple, seamless SaaS experience without having to manage infrastructure or storage within Microsoft 365 Backup Storage.
  • Use Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 as Veeam's existing software solution to back up Microsoft 365 data and manage infrastructure.
  • Backup service from a Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partner builds on the Veeam platform with value-added services tailored to the provider's area of ​​expertise.

Availability of Veeam Backup

Work is currently underway to integrate Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 and Microsoft 365 Backup via their backup APIs. General availability of the updated Veeam offering is expected within 90 days of the availability of Microsoft 365 Backup Storage.
