7 Reasons Why Enterprises Need SaaS Backup
And Pointers to Maximize Its ROI
#1 Secure Your Business-critical
SaaS Data From Data Loss
You can lose your valuable data to commonplace reasons such as human error, malicious intent, ransomware, malware, and sync errors.
You Can Lose Your SaaS Data To Commonplace Reasons
An account mistakenly deleted, a critical email erased or an org-wide shared document overwritten? Nightmarish scenarios that cannot be fixed without a backup and recovery solution.
Ransomware and Malware
Two out of three companies have been targeted by ransomware. Surprisingly, ransom payment amounts to only 15% of the financial fallout of an attack. Post-attack remediation and data recovery form the bulk of the costs.
SaaS platforms have high availability, but downtimes and outages are a reality. Wouldn’t it be great to access documents and files from an accurate, real-time backup if your SaaS platform was down?
#2 Recover From Ransomware & Reduce Downtime.
2 out of 3 companies have been targeted by ransomware. The average cost of downtime is $5.6K/minute.
And that’s not including the devastating cost to the brand. Moreover, reports suggest that even after paying the ransom, only 65% of data is restored.
Secure and immutable cloud backup is the only reliable way to recover your valuable data after a ransomware attack.

#3 Your CSP Recommends Third-Party Backup
As per the Shared Responsibility Model, the onus of data protection at your end lies squarely with you.
Every SaaS platform – Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, Box, Dropbox – makes it amply clear that in-solution recovery of deleted data is possible only within a couple of weeks to months. Restoring corrupted files to their former glory is almost impossible. And once the Recycle Bin/Trash is emptied, there’s no hope – your data is permanently gone and irretrievable.
This is because you and your CSP have “shared responsibility” for protecting your data. Particularly when the cause of data loss is at your end.
#4 Reliable SaaS Backup Ensures Regulatory Compliance
and helps you retain control of your data
Data regulatory laws worldover – GDPR, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SoX), Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (SHIELD), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) – mandate data encryption, shared responsibility and demonstrable recovery.
However, you need to make sure that the backup solution is compliant with the laws’ requirements like the choice of data center, data encryption at-rest/in-transit, immutability, and the ability to purge backups.
#5 Top IT Analysts Strongly Advise SaaS Backup
“A must-have safety net”
Gartner adds, “Organizations cannot assume that SaaS providers will offer backup as part of the service or provide interfaces that backup vendors can use to access data.”
