Making SaaS Data Protection a Priority Before It’s Too Late


Warning: SaaS Data at Risk

The latest report from IDG Research shows some alarming trends across users and administrators of SaaS applications like Google Apps and Salesforce. This tech-savvy bunch is leaving the protection of their SaaS data up to their SaaS providers. “That’s a scary proposition,” says Jason Buffington, senior analyst and data protection expert at Enterprise Strategy Group Inc.

Key Findings:

  • Nearly half of organizations were relying on their SaaS provider for backup, despite the fact that experts agree this is insufficient.
  • 95% of organizations believe their SaaS provider can/will easily restore their lost data.
  • 58% of businesses surveyed had experienced SaaS data loss in the past year.
  • 31% are considering investing in backup & recovery for SaaS applications after a data loss incident.

Don’t wait for data loss to strike before you educate yourself about your data protection responsibilities in a SaaS relationship.
