Office 365 Backup Skykick

With increasing adoption of Cloud services and reliance on Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive for day to day business operations, keeping Cloud-based data safe is of equal importance to backing up your physical desktops and servers.

SkyKick Cloud Backup is the final piece of your Office 365 jigsaw, providing total security and the ability to restore your valuable information in the event of a data loss.


Contrary to what many think, data loss happens even in the Cloud. Whilst it’s not subject to the same threats as your physical infrastructure (floods, fires, theft, etc.), it is still subject to the biggest known cause of data loss – accidental error.

Within SharePoint and OneDrive, if administrators delete files they become unrecoverable. For non-admin users, deleted files go into the Recycle Bin and are permanently deleted after 186 days. At best this data loss will take a day or two to restore, resulting in unknown costs and business downtime. At its worst it could be permanently lost causing immeasurable damage to your company. Similarly, Office 365 allows you to set conditions for emails to be automatically deleted, but your set conditions might apply to emails you didn’t expect, and these would be permanently deleted after 30 days. Users can also delete their entire mailbox rendering it completely unrecoverable.

With data restoration taking minutes, SkyKick takes the worry out of accidental error and gives you peace of mind with your Office 365 accounts.


SkyKick Cloud Backup can backup your Exchange Mailbox, and your OneDrive and SharePoint. SkyKick automatically backs up all of the data in these areas, so you don’t need to select which data you want to be backed up. It’s worth noting that your SharePoint will only be backed up once, despite being accessible by multiple users. For example, if the SharePoint was accessible by 20 staff members, it would be backed up once rather than 20 times, saving time and resources.


With SkyKick Office 365 Backup you pay a small monthly cost for unlimited backup. For this cost you can backup up to 6 times a day with an unlimited retention period – you can literally keep everything forever. This means that, if it’s important to your business, you can easily meet your legal and compliance retention requirements.


SkyKick does not require any new software or hardware, and the setup process is simple. When it comes to restoration, SkyKick has a simple, instant one-click restore. Office 365 on it’s own is smart, but SkyKick makes it even smarter.
