Backup Tool Alternatives for SaaS and Technology Companies

An effective backup tool is essential for SaaS and technology businesses who need to protect and secure their data. Utilizing a cloud-based SaaS backup system can help you protect, store, and secure your data at all times. With risks like cyberattacks and ransomware, human error, and even power outages, SaaS and technology businesses need to be prepared ahead of time to preserve their data.

Not all backup options are created equal. When it comes to Microsoft 365 and Google Workspaces backup, your options are limited. Not to mention, Microsoft 365 operates on a shared responsibility model, which means it’s on businesses to backup and protect their data.

However, there are some third-party backup options that you should consider. Choosing the right vendor, with the right scope of tools for your backup needs, is an important step in the process. With numerous options out there, we broke down some of the top vendors, including Backupify, to help you decide what’s the right fit. Take a look at the chart below to figure out what vendor works best for you.
