When it comes to backup and recovery, what you don’t know could hurt you. While certain SaaS applications help businesses store and manage critical data, they are unable to fully protect against risks such as user error, malicious activity, hacktivism and more. The business interruption resulting from lost data can be detrimental.
“[IT] customers expect data and services—both on-premises and in the cloud—to be available immediately whenever and wherever they require them,” wrote Rachel Dines, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. in the February 2014 report entitled Back Up Your Critical Cloud Data Before It's Too Late. “Waiting for days or weeks for the recovery of lost data or being informed that data is unrecoverable is unacceptable for most end users. As more critical data is deployed in the cloud, it’s time for [IT infrastructure and operations] leaders to be proactive and invest in mitigating these risks instead of waiting for data loss to occur.”
Through real-life stories of companies that experienced data loss, this webinar will explore the limitations of current SaaS applications backup and recovery approaches, the common causes of SaaS data loss and the things to look for when choosing a cloud-to-cloud backup provider.
