Identity is the new control plane, which means that being able to back up and recover both your on-premises Active Directory and Azure Active Directory (AD) is critical. But most customers I work with don’t know how to respond if sensitive objects are accidentally or maliciously deleted from Azure AD.
See, if you use Microsoft Azure AD or Office 365, it is important to understand the differences between the on-premises Recycle Bin and the Azure AD Recycle Bin. If Azure AD or Office 365 users are deleted in Azure AD or Office 365, they are moved to the Recycle Bin, which is stored in the Office 365 portal. But other deleted Azure AD and Office 365 objects, including Azure AD and Office 365 groups and group membership, are not stored in the Recycle Bin. There are many limitations in the Azure AD Recycle Bin, such as:
But most organizations don’t even recognize the limitations of native recovery tools until it’s too late.
