Be Prepared to Backup Microsoft Teams Data

What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is Microsoft’s communication platform for group collaboration chat. It is an application within the Microsoft 365 cloud suite. Microsoft Teams gives business users the ability to chat, hold video meetings, and store files. As a part of Microsoft 365, it also integrates with applications such as Word, Sharepoint, Excel and others. Businesses must use a data backup solution for Microsoft Teams, since Microsoft only assures availability of its services and not the data that users generate on the platform.

Why do you need to backup data for Microsoft Teams?

Most organizations are unaware that Microsoft Teams and their other Microsoft 365 applications have something very important in common: Their service agreement states that Microsoft is not responsible for backing up your data. As is the case with many other Software as a Service (SaaS) vendors, Microsoft’s services use the “Shared Responsibility model.” This means that although the protection of their applications and infrastructure is Microsoft’s responsibility, it is the users’ responsibility to keep their data safe.

How does Microsoft Teams backup work?

It’s easy to backup Microsoft Teams using Backupify for Office 365 Backup & Recovery. You can keep your company’s Teams data safe in a few simple steps.

  1. Connect with our sales team who will help get Backupify set up for you
  2. Log in to Backupify’s intuitive user interface, then choose “Microsoft Teams” from the drop-down menu that appears
  3. Backupify will automatically discover new Microsoft Teams within your Microsoft 365 applications
