For detailed information on this, see Microsoft Entra ID data that Druva protects.

Get started

If you are ready to back up your Microsoft Entra ID data, here are the things that you need to get started.

How should I get Entra ID enabled in my Druva Instance?

Druva can back up Microsoft Entra ID objects for you if you have a license that contains Microsoft 365. Or you can contact our support or sales team to enable Microsoft Entra ID data protection for your account.


  • Druva needs permissions to access the Microsoft Entra ID tenant’s data. When you install Druva’s app for Microsoft Entra ID, ensure that it gets all the permissions it needs. For more information, see Permissions required for Microsoft Entra ID backup.

  • In order to provide consent for permissions, you need a Microsoft 365 Global Administrator account. You can revoke the global administrator permissions from the Microsoft 365 administrator’s account after you configure data protection with Druva, but ensure that the account is still active. For more information, see Protect your Microsoft 365 data - quick start guide.

In addition, Druva recommends that Cloud Key Management is enabled for your account. For more information, see Configure Cloud Key Management.
