One of the most business-friendly innovations in recent years has been the rapid growth of cloud applications like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace.
These Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps have fundamentally changed the way we do business, enabling companies to take advantage of economies of scale and reduce IT infrastructure costs.
While these apps offer many advantages, one thing they can’t do is completely protect your business data from outside threats, like cybercriminals.
Many organisations falsely assume that moving to cloud-based applications means backup is no longer necessary.
Data Protection Responsibilities
Although Microsoft and Google ensure that they won’t lose your data, they do not make any guarantees about restoring data if you lose it.
This means your cloud data is as vulnerable to accidental or malicious deletion, ransomware and other types of data loss as on-premises applications.
With SaaS Protection you can avoid downtime and keep business data more secure.
Forgoing a backup may save money in the short term, but the cost of a data breach could range from a minor inconvenience to long-term reputational damage, loss of customer data, fines, and ultimately, company closure.
