Protect your Office 365 and grow recurring revenue with Toroid Cloud Backup
People delete data. Mostly accidentally, sometimes intentionally. And there is the ever-present threat of ransomware and other malware.
Office 365 provides redundancy, but that only ensures the availability of the present state of the data. It does not back up the data to protect against data loss events.
That means that even in the cloud, data protection is necessary.

Why do you need Toroid Cloud Backup when Exchange Online is already a cloud service?
Many small businesses may not be aware that the risk of data loss also extends to the cloud. As reported by the IT Compliance Policy Group, an industry research firm, 32% of businesses are impacted by data loss in the cloud.
Data loss can occur from any number of causes – from accidental deletion to malicious attacks like viruses and ransomware – and the detrimental costs from these incidents can be severe, up to $120,000 on average per incident for small businesses. Leveraging a cloud service like Exchange Online thus doesn’t necessarily protect you from these threats.
For this reason – and the fact that native data retention policies provided by Microsoft may not be adequate – it is just as important to backup Exchange Online data as it was when mail was being managed on-premises.
What are the benifits of having Cloud Backup?An Office365 backup solution such as Toroid Cloud Backup (TCB) provides a number of benefits both to MSP partners and their downstream end customers – the small businesses they serve. For partners, it helps them provide a critical and highly valued service to their end customers – one that operates much like an insurance policy for critical productivity data – and which extends Microsoft native data retention policies. Specifically, it gives these partners a powerful backup tool for key productivity assets used by small businesses – including Exchange Online, SharePoint and OneDrive and the latest collaboration tools such as Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams. Small business customers can thus quickly and accurately recover from unfortunate data loss incidents involving this productivity data with minimal disruption, mitigating possible data loss costs.
What type of data can be protected using Toroid Cloud Backup?Toroid Cloud Backup is a market-leading Office 365 backup solution for small businesses. Its backup scope includes the complete set of Office 365 productivity data that small businesses rely on to collaborate, communicate and operate efficiently, from Exchange Online information (mail, calendars, contacts, notes, etc.) to SharePoint libraries and data, OneDrive files and folders, and data stored and used by Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams.
How does a Toroid Cloud Backup work?Toroid Cloud Backup operates adjacently, but distinctly from an Office 365 subscription. As a fully managed cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS), it operates seamlessly in the background for Office 365 subscribers, without the need for any onsite hardware or software. All backup data is stored in a secure and encrypted state by Toroid on Microsoft Azure, its exclusive public cloud infrastructure provider.
How much data is stored and how long can I keep it?There is no limit to how much user mailbox data is backed up in Toroid Cloud Backup, nor is there a time limit to how long it is retained, provided maintain an active subscription.
What are some potential data threats when it comes to using the cloud?Using cloud-based services can offer customers significant advantages with regards to scalability, cost, productivity, and efficiency, among others. However, the cloud still poses security risks for users, as viruses, ransomware, and other data breach risks can still impact user data in the cloud. In fact, analysts point to the fact that 32% of businesses are impacted by data loss in the cloud at some point, with the most common causes being user error (64% of cases) and malicious attacks (20%).
Is it possible to lose data when using the cloud?Yes, companies who use the cloud are still at risk of losing data. As reported by the IT Compliance Policy Group, an industry research firm, 32% of businesses are impacted by data loss in the cloud. Data loss can occur from any number of causes – from accidental deletion to malicious attacks like viruses and ransomware. Having data in the cloud doesn’t necessarily protect you from these threats.
What happens if a user does not exist any longer, or data from deleted users?"Toroid Cloud Backup retains all data from deleted users. The data can be restored to a public or shared mailbox, or to another user.
How long does it take to restore an item?The time it takes to restore varies on the amount of data restored. Individual items can take as little as a couple of minutes while full mailboxes can take multiple hours depending on how much data is being restored.
