Why Backup G Suite Google Drive & Gmail Data?

The real question is why you would choose not to backup your data. Data loss due to user error is the #1 reason organizations lose critical sales, marketing, customer, financial and IP data stored in email and documents. While we trust your data is safe in the hands of Google, you need to protect against user error, hackers attacks like ransomware, malicious actions and access from lost or stolen devices.

Background on G Suite Google Drive & Gmail
Over 5 million organizations have chosen G Suite Apps for cloud office applications including Gmail, documents, calendars, contacts and hangouts. Your G Suite Apps data such as financial spreadsheets, customer emails, marketing plans and sales contacts is the foundation of your business. It has become an official focal point for day to day conversations and business critical workflows.

Is your G Suite Google Drive & Gmail Data protected against Data Loss?

Yes, to the extent of your G Suite including Google Drive & Gmail being available and data being accessible all the time.
Google has a centralized hub to store multiple copies of your data and chances of Google losing data is zero. However, there are four top scenarios where you are NOT covered;

  • Accidental / intentional deletion of data by Users
  • Malicious action by 3rd party Apps installed on your domain or hackers
  • Lost or stolen devices
  • Ransomware where your data is encrypted by attackers  who demand ransom payment in exchange for giving you the decryption keys.

Why only take our word for it, in a report* by Aberdeen Group, various reasons for data loss were listed which are as follows;

  • End user delete
  • Employee overwrote data
  • Data deletion by hacker
  • Ended SaaS and data loss
  • Malicious delete
  • Application overwrote another

*Report by Aberdeen Group, titled SaaS Data Loss: The Problem You Didn’t Know You Had. January 2013.

Of the many reasons listed above, it takes only ONE Google Drive & Gmail disaster to wish that you had “Backed Up”! Don’t wait for that to happen. Backup now.
