  1. Hi, im using Veeam O365 Backup software v3, in this version i configured O365 successfully. But with backup data i can see the userw mail box and emails, is there any way or any update in V4 to hide or any other ways given for the same? Because in backups admin can see users mails, that is one of the major security and audit observation. Can you help me on this…

    1. Hi Yuva,

      Not today, with granting access to the console for a restore/backup administrator they will be able to view and see email contents.

      We do have a RestFul API, that can be used to create a portal where you could hide the contents of the email, and only allow restore for a restore/backup administrator. Here is an example: http://foonet.be/2019/11/26/veeam-backup-for-microsoft-office-365-v4-self-service-web-portal-update/

      For auditing with v4, you do have the capability to see if a Admin was accessing items within a restore session. As noted here: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/vbo365/guide/restore_metrics.html?ver=40

      As a last note, feel free to head over to the Veeam Forums related to Veeam Backup for Office 365: https://forums.veeam.com/veeam-backup-for-microsoft-office-365-f47/
