We can now add Backupify to your Office 365 or other supported cloud based infrastructure such as Google Suite. Backupify can automatically make an offsite, separate service backup repository of all of your emails, one drive data, sharepoint data, etc.
Is it really necessary to backup Office 365? Yes and no. At this point, we believe it makes a good safety net to extend your cloud data to a third party service in the event Microsoft (or Google) was to go down for any reason. Backupify also makes for a good email archival system as well to remain compliant with various regulations.
Yes, there are settings in Office 365 that allow you to retain data for so long, but we believe Backupify is a better option simply because it is both handled through a third party entity and it is relatively inexpensive compared to other archival services.
