Mac Online Backups

I recently took on client who exclusively uses MacBooks. The employees are disbursed throughout the country. They use Office 365 for hosted email and Office for Mac (including Outlook for their email). I am looking for a program I can install on each MacBook to backup normal data files as well as the Outlook contents (eg: contacts, calendar, etc.). I am aware of services like iDrive, ibackup, etc., but they don't seem to have the ability to backup the Outlook portion. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

You ought to be able to use any backup utility you care to; but, you'd need to add the Outlook profiles folder to the list:

Dear user
If you want to backup the Mac. Outlook data then you need to save it in OLM file format. That can be easily done by using an exporter tool for Outlook for Macbook. By backup on the Mac. Outlook data into OLM you can easily import it whenever it's required or you have the option to export it into  PST file format. By exporting it into PST you have options available to manually import PST in Office 365, whenever required.

Thanks & Regards

What version of Office for Mac is it?
And, if they are using IMAP accounts, the data is on the server and that is what needs to be backed up!

They are using Office 2016 with active sync. I am looking for a product that will backup the contents of the laptop, including the Outlook.

Thanks for being a sounding board Davis! I ended up selecting Druva as the backup solution.
