As organizations increasingly move data into cloud-based applications, many believe that traditional best practices such as data backup are outdated. After all, SaaS applications are always available, accessible from anywhere, and highly redundant, so why is backup necessary?
An astonishing 1 in 3 companies report losing data stored in cloud-based applications. The single leading cause of this data loss? End-user error.
Other common culprits include:
- Malware or ransomware attacks
- Malicious end-user activity
- Accidental data overwrites
- Canceled account subscriptions
With more and more companies depending on Google Workspace for collaboration and business operations, these risks are impossible to ignore.
Backup is just as important in the cloud as in traditional on-premises IT systems. An independent, third-party, SaaS backup solution is the best way to protect organizations against the most common data loss pitfalls.
