Threats like ransomware and human error continue to put company data at risk. However, despite these risks, some companies are still failing to properly backup their data.
In a recent survey, 35% of respondents said they rely solely on their SaaS vendors to protect their data. Oftentimes however, SaaS protection has limitations. The survey looked at data recovery success rates for some of the most popular SaaS applications like Office 365. According to the report, only 15% of respondents said they were able to recover 100% of their data when dealing with Microsoft 365 data loss.
This study demonstrates the importance of backing up your data. In our recent webinar, The Gold Medal Standard for a SaaS Backup Solution: Reliable, Simple, Secure, we make the case for having a third-party SaaS backup and explain what you should look for when choosing a solution. You’ll hear from members of the Backupify team who will detail the benefits of Backupify, as well as stories from real customer situations who switched to our SaaS backup solution. Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll learn.
Data has become an essential component of business growth for companies of all sizes. According to a recent report, 55% of small businesses are using data to improve efficiency and predict changes and outcomes. Companies are increasingly utilizing data to develop meaningful and actionable insights. However, the more data a company relies on the more it can cost them. Still, data growth doesn’t have to mean more money on your bill. SaaS backup solutions can help you retain valuable data while saving on licensing costs. This ensures the data your company relies on is there when you need it.
Oftentimes, the most difficult part of backing up data is organizing the storage space and managing the process. According to a recent survey 86% of businesses perform backups monthly, weekly, or daily. This can be a burden for internal IT staff already stretched thin with other tasks. Outsourcing your SaaS backup eliminates the need for companies to expend resources on this time consuming and often complex process, and with an efficient SaaS backup solution like Backupify, setup can take as little as 5 minutes.
We’ve already discussed how a SaaS backup solution can save you money, but there are a number of other benefits to using private cloud infrastructure in particular. One concern some companies have expressed about storing their data in the cloud, is security. However, private cloud infrastructure allows for greater security and privacy. That’s partly because data stored in private clouds can often only be accessed through highly secure networks, but there are other added security features as well. As a result, one recent survey found that a large portion of companies have migrated either applications or data that were primarily part of a public cloud environment to a private cloud or other secondary solution.
