Next Generation Solution Dramatically Reduces Data Backup and Recovery Time

Norwalk, CT – November 29, 2017 – Backupify, the leader in cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery for software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, today announced G Suite Backup 2.0, which now protects Google Team Drives alongside Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, and Drive. Available to customers by the beginning of 2018, Backupify for G Suite 2.0 provides the fastest, most robust enterprise data backup and recovery solution for G Suite today.

According to Gartner’s report You May Need Additional Backup to Prevent Data Loss From Your SaaS Solutions, “some organizations may not realize that SaaS providers' high availability and disaster recovery capabilities could fall short in preventing data loss triggered by user errors, data corruption or malicious attacks.”* No matter how data is lost, Backupify’s G Suite backup solution provides quick and easy data recovery across the entire Google suite.

With the proliferation of Team Drives for instant collaboration, Backupify now offers automated, three times per day backup for Team Drive files with granular recovery options. Backupify for G Suite 2.0 can recover Team Drive data at the individual file or entire shared folder level, while maintaining file sharing permissions on documents or folders restored.  

Applying Datto’s proven, innovative backup storage technology to the Backupify product line, G Suite Backup 2.0 was built on a brand new architecture. As a result, G Suite admins can recover data within seconds or minutes as opposed to hours or even days. With the addition of ElasticSearch functionality, G Suite admins can now search through large volumes of data much more efficiently to quickly find the information within their backups that is most relevant to their G Suite users.  

“For businesses that rely on G Suite, it’s essential that admins have a backup solution in place that gives them the coverage and control they need to reduce the potential risk of using SaaS applications. The ideal solution should restore data fast in order to avoid lost productivity” said Matt Richards, VP of Product Marketing, Datto. “A backup solution is only as valuable as the speed and the granularity of its recovery. We have made significant updates to our technology under the hood and the result is lightning fast performance for our G Suite customers, regardless of the size of the data environments being protected.”

According to Larry Cooke, Senior Manager, Infrastructure and Client Services at Corel Corporation, “As a G Suite customer, we were looking for a backup tool that was easy to administer and use, and Backupify was the obvious choice. Speed is a critical factor when it comes to getting lost data back and the updates to Backupify’s G Suite solution give us confidence that we’re prepared if an IT disaster was to hit.”

Backupify for G Suite 2.0 will be available in January for Enterprise customers in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia. Backupify for Office 365 2.0 was released in June and is available for Exchange, OneDrive and SharePoint in the U.S. and EMEA.
