ISO/IEC 27001 & 27018

CodeTwo’s Information Security Management System (ISMS), implemented, maintained and certified to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27018, consists of policies, procedures and controls that govern data security practices within our company. The ISMS has also a significant influence on the development process of CodeTwo Backup for Office 365. All security measures are implemented during the early stages of the program’s development cycle (privacy by design) and made available to users out of the box (privacy by default). That way you can be sure your data is always in good hands when using our software. Furthermore, our ISMS undergoes regular audits and is continuously improved.

Data encryption

To ensure that no unauthorized person has access to the backed-up contents, CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 not only encrypts Office 365 and SharePoint Online data during the backup process but also provides additional protection to its storages and archives. Data encryption also helps to comply with security requirements set in your organization or imposed by law regulations.

Support for Modern Authentication

CodeTwo’s Office 365 backup solution uses the secure OAuth 2.0 authorization flow to gain access to your Exchange Online mailboxes and public folders, and perform data backup and recovery tasks. OAuth 2.0 access tokens are also used as an additional layer of protection when establishing a connection to SharePoint Online.

Recovery Key for unpredictable scenarios

The program has been equipped with an extra protection mechanism which generates a unique Recovery Key. This key guarantees that in situations when you forget the password to a password-protected storage, you will be able to restore the data it contains by using that key.

Password-protected storages

CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 allows you to restrict access to a storage by setting up a password. This way only authorized staff will be able to access, edit or restore items kept in the company’s repositories.

Monitoring and diagnostic mechanism

At any stage of the backup process, the program monitors its progress and automatically generates performance reports that are instantly visible in the program’s Administration Panel. To be sure that no event escapes your attention, the program also provides a mechanism which can automatically send notifications to your email address if a specified event happens.

Support for Office 365 MFA

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is one of the most important Office 365 security mechanisms, preventing unauthorized access to organizations. CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 supports Office 365 MFA, which means that using our software does not compromise your tenant’s safety. When configuring a connection to SharePoint Online, make sure to use app passwords instead of regular passwords if MFA is enabled in Office 365. Learn more

Office 365 data backups not stored by a third party

For security reasons, Office 365 data backed up by the program is stored exclusively on your company local storages. This eliminates the risk of keeping critical corporate data on third party servers. What’s more, it ensures offline access to the contents of Office 365 mailboxes and public folders, as well as to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business data at any time.

No impact on end users

CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 is totally safe for source contents and its operation is completely invisible to end users. All the backup jobs are performed in the background and have no impact on users’ work – no data is blocked during the backup process.

Solid and secure backups

CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 creates solid and secure backup copies of emails, contacts, calendars and other mailbox data. The same applies to SharePoint data (site collections, team sites, lists, libraries, and folders) as well as OneDrive sites. The backed-up data is resistant to corruption and highly reliable. Additionally, to avoid human error or malpractice, backups can be fully automated by running continuous backup jobs or by scheduling their activity time ranges.

Secure and reliable data restoration

The main reason for creating backups is the possibility of restoring the required data easily and immediately when necessary. CodeTwo Office 365 Backup ensures stability and reliability of the backup copies to guarantee data availability whenever it is needed for either internal or legal purposes.

Support for Office 365 Message Encryption

The Office 365 Message Encryption (OME) feature allows sending encrypted emails in Office 365 and ensures that only authorized users can read them. CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 lets you create backup copies of such emails without stripping them of their encryption properties. In addition, OME-encrypted emails remain as such even when restored by the program to any Office 365 tenant.


Once Office 365 data has been backed up, it can be easily archived and moved to the company’s external storage to maintain an additional layer of protection. The archive files are 1:1 copies of storages, so they include all the versions of backed-up Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business items as well as the folder structure exactly as it is presented on the source server. Archived data can be safely kept for as long as your company needs - ready to be restored even years after it was deleted from its original location.
