What is data back-up?
What is data back-up for Slack and Microsoft Teams?
Data back-up, or data retention, is the practice of storing and managing data for a specific period. Several factors impact how long data is retained, including regulatory and legal requirements, the value of the data to the company, and the cost of storage. While collaboration tools like Slack and Teams can retain user data indefinitely, these archives are often incomplete and difficult to access, potentially placing sensitive information at risk.
Data back-ups for Slack and Teams enable administrators to take control of their collaboration tools by applying the same rules to those datasets as they do to the rest of their company data, thereby capturing a complete record of all content, including edits and deletions.
