You’ve been hearing from us for a while that it’s important to protect the data you work with in SaaS applications such as Microsoft Office 365. Even though SaaS application providers do an excellent job of protecting your data from infrastructure or application failures, they can’t (and won’t) protect you from the mistakes your admins and users may make, nor will they protect you from malicious activity.
As the cloud technology landscape continues to evolve, Spanning is excited to join over 1600 of the brightest minds in IT at the Gartner Catalyst Conference starting in San Diego next week.

If you’ve ever lost data is Salesforce, perhaps through accidental deletion or a data merge error, you know how frustrating it can be to retrieve that data. Sifting through the Salesforce manual Weekly Export is time consuming and can result in data recovery that is incomplete or inaccurate, because it doesn’t include metadata or customizations to your instance. Another issue is presented by the parent-child relationship between records. This can lead to data loss associated with something called “cascade delete.”
If you’re using Google Apps for Work, you’re certainly in good company. With more than half of the Fortune 500 and over 5 million businesses using this cloud-based platform, it’s a popular choice for many. They offer a suite of functions for enterprises including professional email, calendar, and of course, the ability to work from anywhere, so it’s hardly surprising that enterprises value the solution for productivity and collaboration across the workforce. And along with those benefits, they also promise business-grade security and controls. So then why do you need third-party backup for your data?
If you’re one of the millions of people who’ve adopted cloud computing, you’ll need no introduction to just how great an innovation it can be. The list of benefits are immense, facilitating greater collaboration and massively increasing efficiency.
