Video: Why You MUST Backup O365 and GSuite

Office 365 and G Suite are what's referred to as Software as a Service or SaaS.

While they are convenient and their data centers secure, there is a common misconception that these SaaS vendors are providing backup and business continuity for your data.

Why You Need SaaS Protection

An astonishing 1 in 3 businesses report losing data stored in cloud-based applications. In addition, these applications are vulnerable to ransomware attacks.

According to Datto's Annual Ransomware Report, of the 2,400+ MSPs surveyed,  28% have claimed to have seen ransomware attacks in SaaS applications. Of those MSPs, nearly 50% of respondents reported seeing attacks in Office 365 specifically, with 22% reporting G Suite attacks.  Not only can the loss of the data itself be devastating to a company, but the time lost in attempting a recovery can be equally damaging.

The truth is that even data in cloud-based applications is vulnerable to:

• End-user deletion, whether accidental or malicious

• Malware damage or ransomware attacks

• Operational errors such as accidental data overwrites

• Lost data due to canceled user licenses

• Misconfigured application workflows

With more and more businesses moving into Office 365 and G Suite to run their daily operations, these risks are impossible to ignore.
