Office 365 and Google Suite Backup Solution
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud providers are popular elements of a sound business technology strategy. While the vendors provide the applications, almost all mention explicitly in their terms and conditions that protecting data is the client’s responsibility. Yet infrastructure and operations leaders send critical data to SaaS providers without any plan for ensuring data resiliency.
Back up your SaaS data or risk losing customers, partners, and employees.
Stop leaving the door open to data loss, and start proactively protecting cloud data — before it’s too late.
- 7% of data loss is caused by malicious deletions
- 13% of data loss is caused by viruses and hackers
- 47% of data loss is caused by end-user deletions
A 2019 Gartner article projects:
By 2022, 70% of organizations will have suffered a business disruption due to unrecoverable data loss in a SaaS application.
(Gartner 2019 “Assuming SaaS Applications Don’t Require Backup is Dangerous.)
Backup of SaaS application data is your responsibility every SaaS provider explicitly calls out that clients are responsible for protecting their own data. You must plan data protection for every new SaaS service to which you subscribe.
Microsoft states in their Service Level Agreement:
“Microsoft is not liable for data loss due to application outages.
Microsoft is also not liable for data loss due to deprovisioned user accounts.
We recommend that you regularly backup your Content and Data that you store on the services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.”
Google is clear regarding limited recovery:
“You have a limited time from when the data was permanently deleted to restore files and messages. After that, the data cannot be recovered and is gone forever.”
Cloud-To-Cloud Backup is the only practical option. It’s not practical for you to custom develop adaptors/connectors that protect SaaS application data. You must engage with cloud-to-cloud backup providers, as they can leverage their experience to add support for new services quickly.
