Cloud to cloud backup

Why You Must Backup Data from The Cloud to the Cloud.

As companies are increasingly moving their data to cloud applications, traditional backups are no longer enough. Storing data in cloud applications can be safer than storing it in your on-premise storage system.

However, the Cloud isn’t infallible:

  • 1 in 3 companies using SAAS lose data.
  • 47% of data loss is caused by end-user deletions.
  • 13% of data loss is caused by hackers and viruses.
  • Only 7% of data loss is caused by malicious deletions (most are accidental).
  • A lot of data loss is caused by departing employees.

This will always be an “Achilles heel” of the cloud until software can discern between an intentional and unintentional command.

This risk is impossible to ignore.  Data backups are just as important in the cloud as they were with on-premise IT systems.

There are Vulnerabilities In Cloud-Based Systems.

  • Viral damage or ransomware
  • Accidental end-user deletion.
  • Malicious end-user activity.
  • Operational errors such as accidental data overwrite.
  • Lost data due to canceled account subscriptions.
  • Misbehaving application workflows.

Plus, there are Backup Challenges when using Microsoft Office 365 (such as with data storage, Exchange Online, OneDrive, and SharePoint).

  • Data loss due to permanent deletion
  • Data loss when restoring files
  • Time lost in restoring files
  • Time lost finding and restoring files

These are all potential incidents you must address to protect your data.
