Office 365 Exchange Backup

CloudAlly Cloud BackupOffice 365 Exchange brings the power of Microsoft Office to the cloud, but it also brings with it an unwanted element of risk. Office 365 Exchange lacks the daily backup and archiving process necessary for you to restore data after it’s been manually or automatically removed from the recycle bin. When you add to the equation the potential for unexpected malicious activity or data corruption caused by 3rd party app synchronization, it becomes clear that your Office 365 Exchange data could be inadvertently lost without any chance for recovery! CloudAlly’s automated daily Office 365 Exchange backup service ensures that you can both quickly recover data from any point in time as well as export your archives for local storage.

All Your Bases Covered
