Microsoft 365 protection

Cove Data Protection (Cove) offers a backup and recovery service for Exchange, OneDrive and Sharepoint. The service handles full Microsoft 365 Exchange, OneDrive and SharePoint backups so you can recover data long after it is cleaned or lost from Microsoft databases.

Cove relies on domain access to Microsoft 365. You have functionality to select only the mailboxes or accounts required for backup.

All backed up data is encrypted during the backup process and the encryption key is securely stored in the cloud.

Please note Microsoft 365 is the new name of Microsoft's Office 365 service. The name for this was officially changed on April 21st 2020 and information on the change can be found here:

Software-Only partners can create Microsoft 365 devices but devices will use N-able storage nodes


The following account types are required:

  • A SuperUser account for the Management Console (for adding domains and initiating backups and restores)
  • A Security Officer role (for initiating a restore)
  • A Global administrator account for Microsoft 365
