Spanning’s Backup for Google Workspace Solution Gives Hamline University Confidence in the Cloud

Anthony Schroeder, director of infrastructure services at Hamline University, knew that moving data management and communications to Google Workspace can create significant data protection challenges for an organization. While Google takes every precaution possible on their end to protect the data with which they’re entrusted, it’s impossible for Google to control what happens on the customer’s side. From users accidentally deleting files or emails to hackers deliberately destroying information, the risks to data in cloud applications are significant, but manageable.

Schroeder clearly understood the potential for problems and made backup a priority for Hamline, in order to ensure that all the vital records, intellectual property, research, and communications generated by the school would remain safe and accessible.
