ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, has announced that RecoveryManager Plus, its Active Directory and Exchange backup and restoration solution, can now back up and restore contents in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
Available immediately, the latest version of RecoveryManager Plus lets administrators store SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business backups locally and perform point-in-time restoration for any site.
Despite the popularity of SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, these two Microsoft services fall short for enterprises that want to be able to restore sensitive data and content for long periods of time.
Currently, Microsoft’s Recycle Bin offers a recovery window of just 93 days, plus an additional 14 days with Microsoft’s intervention. Organizations that require a longer recovery window need a better disaster recovery solution.
“The ever-increasing threat to data posed by ransomware, Trojans and even unintended actions like accidental deletion of contents in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, can impact business continuity and seriously reduce the trust customers place in an organization,” said Subramanyan Balakrishnan, Product Manager at ManageEngine. “RecoveryManager Plus provides enterprises a way to keep the trust of their customers by enabling them to restore any file to a backed up state, no matter how long ago it was deleted.”
The latest version of RecoveryManager Plus has several new capabilities:
· Backup and restore all SharePoint Online site collections, sites, lists and document libraries.
· Backup and restore all OneDrive for Business files and folders.
· Backup metadata such as last modified time and share permissions.
· Restore entire SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business sites to any backed up version.
· Granularly restore individual SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business documents or lists to any of their previous versions.
The new RecoveryManager Plus features complement its existing capabilities to back up and restore Active Directory, on-premises Exchange and Office 365 (Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business). Moving forward, ManageEngine plans to extend RecoveryManager Plus’ backup and restoration features to cover Google’s cloud-based collaboration service, G Suite.
Pricing and Availability
RecoveryManager Plus is available immediately at www.manageengine.com/ad-recovery-manager/download.html. Pricing for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business backup and restoration is based on the number of sites backed up using the product, starting at $145 a year for 5 SharePoint Online sites and $95 a year for 25 OneDrive for Business sites. A fully functional, 30-day trial version is also available.
