On Demand Recovery for Azure Active Directory overview
Many organizations assume Azure Active Directory (AD) functions the same as on-premises AD, but there are differences. One notable difference is the simplicity of recovering deleted objects — either hard-deleted objects or from the Recycle Bin. And knowing what’s changed between on-premises AD and Azure environments can be challenging in the dynamic cloud environment. Accidental, malicious and time-sensitive deletions put the organization at serious risk.
On Demand Recovery for Azure AD offers fast, secure and scalable SaaS-based recovery of users, attributes, groups and group membership — all from a single SaaS interface. This enables you to:
On Demand Recovery for Azure AD helps you easily get back to a safe state while also simplifying ongoing management of cloud identities.
Back up Azure AD and Office 365 users, attributes, groups and group membership, easily and securely. Best of all, you get to choose the backup retention period that best meets your company’s compliance needs, so you never have to worry about not getting back what you need.
Restore multiple users, groups (including nested groups) and group memberships at the same time without requiring PowerShell scripting. You’ll be able to recover resources faster than before (from hours to minutes) while also removing the need to access multiple admin interfaces in Office 365 or Azure AD.
Search or compare specific attributes from multiple sources that were modified and roll back only those changes rather than restore the entire object. You can also report on all changes made across Azure AD and highlight differences between backups and the live environment. This enables simple restores directly from the reporting interface — and all are fully auditable.
Reduce the risk of manual error and ensure all recovery-related tasks are auditable. Restore either entire user accounts or just the user attributes.
Recreate hard-deleted objects that have bypassed the Recycle Bin. Now you can easily get back anything that has been accidentally — or maliciously — deleted.
Search for modified attributes, either one or many, and recover the affected users or groups from any backup.
