Protected Objects (Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365)

This report analyzes backup protection of Microsoft 365 objects in your virtual environment.

An object is considered Protected if there is at least one valid backup restore point that meets the designated RPO for it.

The report examines whether objects have valid backup restore points created within the specified time range (RPO period), shows the total number of restore points available for each protected object, and provides information on the completion status of recent backup job sessions.

The report helps you identify which objects in your environment function without proper protection and make sure the existing backups and replicas meet established RPO requirements.

  • The Summary section includes the following elements:
    • The Objects by Protection State chart shows the number of protected and unprotected objects.
    • The Objects by Type by Protection State chart shows the number of protected and unprotected objects for each object type.
  • The Details section provides information on all protected and unprotected users, groups, sites and teams.
