5 Reasons to Backup and Secure your Data

Cloud Service Providers Recommends Third-Party Backup

Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, Dropbox, box logo | CloudAlly
Microsoft 365 | CloudAlly

Microsoft: “If you want to support recovering message beyond 30 days, you would need to use a 3rd party service for the backup… Point in time restoration of mailbox items is out of scope for the Exchange Online service.”

– MS Technet Documentation: https://support.office.com

Google | CloudAlly

G Suite: “You have a limited time from when the data was permanently deleted to restore files and messages. After that, the data is gone forever.”

– G Suite Administrator Help: https://support.google.com

salesforce | CloudAlly

Salesforce: “maintains a copy of customer data for disaster recovery purposes, but it is important for customers to develop a data backup and recovery strategy as part of their overall data management and security model. The Salesforce Data Recovery service is an expensive and time-consuming process and should only be used as a last resort, when no other copy of the data is available.”

Dropbox business backup | CloudAlly

Box: “There is a 14-day grace period when content is removed from Trash during which User Services can recover your content. After this, we cannot guarantee that the files or folders will be recoverable.”

– Box.com Community Help Portal: https://community.box.com


Dropbox: “Deleted files are marked for deletion in our system and are purged from our storage servers. They can no longer be recovered.”

  • Article 32 of the GDPR insists that organizations, “have the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident”

SaaS Data Loss Happens. Frequently.

Five | CloudAlly

Native Workarounds are Timebound and Cumbersome

Native solutions are built for purposes of archival and not recovery. Hence restoring lost data using them is tedious and time-bound. They cannot compare to the ease of point-in-time recovery by SaaS backup solutions.
  • Native solutions like Litigation Hold and Recycle Bins are timebound. Once the time limit is up your data is permanently deleted.
  • Native solutions are archival in nature and not built for data recovery. This means that restore is tedious and destructive (changes are overwritten) without unlimited point-in-time, or cross-user recovery.

David O'Neal Network Admin MHI Inc.

For those users, we now have a point in time backups that can restore folder and item level data. It is much better than the email recovery built into Office 365, which is extremely basic.

We found that using CloudAlly to backup Office 365 and Salesforce.com was simple to backup, and quick to setup.
