G Suite backups

SaaS Protection for G Suite: simple, automated and secure backup of cloud data

G Suite is a powerful business tool, offering companies subscription access to a suite of valuable applications for corporate collaboration and communication. With the advertised best-in-class security and cloud storage for accessing documents from any location, it appears a complete, one-stop solution.

However, one point many companies fail to completely understand is that G Suite does not provide a robust backup and recovery solution as part of the subscription. G Suite does include Google Vault, but it is a mistake to think this is a backup solution. The Vault is for archiving. It is designed to help users retain, hold, search, and export data. This is a very different function to backups aimed at recovering lost, or in the case of a ransomware attack, encrypted data.

What is a ransomware attack?

Like it or not, ransomware attacks have become a part of the business landscape and data stored in the cloud is just as vulnerable to attack as it is on-site. In this 7-minute video learn from KnowBe4's Chief Hacking Officer how your business-critical data can be held to ransom at the mercy of hackers as a result of simple human error, and how to protect yourself.

A dedicated, independent backup solution removes the threat of ransomware encryption leaving you no longer reliant on paying the ransom to retrieve data - instead it can be retrieved from backup.

According to Datto research, downtime resulting from a ransomware attack is 23 times greater than the ransom amount itself. The average ransom demand is $5,900 compared to the average cost of downtime from the event being equivalent to $141,000. With a robust, wholistic backup solution on hand, recovery from an attack can be expected in 24 hours or less.

Reduce risk with a dedicated, independent backup solution

Datto SaaS Protection provides:

  • Point-in-Time Backups: Backups include daily snapshots of each users data, allowing you to browse through a user’s account at a specific point in time. Avoid data loss from ransomware by restoring entire accounts to a designated point in time before an attack occurred.
  • 3X/day backup: Rest easy with SaaS Protection’s automatic daily backups
  • On-demand backup: Perform additional backups as needed at any time. Running an on-demand backup will not affect the three regularly scheduled backups.
  • Infinite Retention: Store an unlimited amount of data for no additional fees.
