Native capabilities of Office 365 are often undersold by third-party backup vendors, leading to organisations second guessing what level of data protection they need.

The reality is that native safeguards, when managed correctly, can be the right choice for certain organisations to cover certain use cases. We’ll debunk some of the more popular myths to show you how to maximise your coverage using native capabilities. We’ll also explore the edge cases that might push you beyond what is protected by Microsoft, and what remedies you can turn to in your time of need.

Join AvePoint’s John Hodges and PAITGroup’s Stephanie Donahue as they discuss how to set and execute a backup strategy that meets your organisational goals using a mixture of native controls and third party backups. Specifically: how to ensure a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) that covers your bases and will address your organisation’s needs.

You will learn how to:

  • Set goals for your Office 365 data protection plan
  • Maximise the native capabilities of Office 365
  • Properly assess whether or not you need third-party backup
  • Address any gaps your organisation may have
  • And more!
