It’s Time to Consider Cloud-to-Cloud Backup and Recovery a Necessity for Your Organization

Does your organization leverages cloud-based applications that operate in a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) or PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) cloud?

If so, relying on your application provider to recover your critical business information and data in the event of loss presents serious risks, including, but not limited to, the potential for lost intellectual property, as well as regulatory non-compliance.

Your data, their cloud

Your organization has ultimate responsibility for protecting your critical corporate data, no matter where that data resides. SaaS and PaaS providers, such as Salesforce.com, Google Apps, Microsoft Office 365, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure do a good job in backing up your data, generally speaking.

However, the backups they perform are for their benefit, not yours. If you need to recover deleted data, for example purged email from several months or years ago to be used as legal evidence – you might find your SaaS orPaaS provider is unable or unwilling to help.

How CWPS and Asigra Cloud Backup Can Help

Reclaim control of critical corporate information that resides outside of your data centers.

With CWPS, Asigra Cloud Backup™ provides the same backup and recovery protection for data in cloud-based applications and platforms as it does in on-premise data centers.

Asigra Cloud Backup enables you to manage the recoverability of cloud-based application data in multiple ways:

Agentlessly back up the data in SaaS / PaaS clouds to authorized secure data centers or your own data center

Choose the frequency and granularity of the backups on a data source by data source basis to ensure data is protected as long as required for compliance and business continuity

Mass deploy backup rules to hundreds of MS Office 365 or Google Apps users at once, ensuring consistent protection across departments with minimal configuration effort

Set and achieve Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives that meet your organization’s needs

Store all data in a secure, encrypted form so unauthorized users do not have access to the backup information

Retain access to your data at all times, even if you’ve cancelled your SaaS / PaaS subscription

Meet regulatory and compliance requirements

With Asigra Cloud Backup’s single, integrated approach to data protection, you won’t require point solutions or processes just for SaaS and PaaS data. Administrators can easily configure, manage and schedule all backup activities from the same intuitive interface and will no longer have to manually maintain various versions of PaaS and SaaS flat files.
