Considering Cloud Adoption? See How AMAG Pharmaceuticals Did It with Google Workspace Backup Software
Whether your company is considering or already using cloud applications, you should be thinking about how to properly protect your SaaS data. More and more, companies are realizing that while their SaaS vendors provide them with invaluable services – allowing business to make great and rapid advancements – there are also gaps in relevant aspects of data management and protection left by most vendors’ policies. For example, Google Workspace cannot help you recover a Drive file or Gmail message that you’ve accidentally permanently deleted. Nor can Google protect you from damage done by hackers, sync errors, or malicious insiders.
Companies that delay acquiring a backup and recovery solution for their SaaS applications often learn the hard way that it is their responsibility to fill the gaps left by their cloud vendors in order to ensure that critical business data is always protected and accessible, as well as to comply with the growing body of regulations surrounding data storage, management, and backup.
Steve Simmons, IT Director and Cloud Architect at AMAG Pharmaceuticals was savvy enough to know it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to SaaS data. His company adopted Google Workspace under his supervision, but as he explains in the video below, he wasn’t about to recommend going cloud without backup. And as it turns out, AMAG’s purchase of Spanning Backup for Google Workspace has more than paid for itself. Simmons recently had to restore all of his Human Resources Department’s files “because of a Drive sync crash that took out a whole folder.”
“This was our first major data loss scenario, and Spanning saved the day – big time. We couldn’t get the Docs back from the Google Docs web trash, or the local recycle bin; the crash even took out Docs that the user didn’t own! Spanning restored everything.”
