Human Error

SaaS vendors can’t protect you from yourself.

Office 365 is a great platform that makes it easy for employees to edit the same document at the same time or view updates to workloads in real time, across any device. Unfortunately, the collaborative environment also makes it easy for files to be accidentally deleted. In fact, according to CloudHQ, human error is behind 64 percent of all data loss incidents. It’s not that SaaS apps like Office 365 don’t want to protect organizations from data loss, it’s that the inherent structure of their agreements with clients means they have no way of knowing if the action was purposeful or not. Therefore, they are obligated to carry out all user requests.

Businesses are continuing to turn to the cloud to take advantage of its unique ability to facilitate agile, collaborative work environments and do more with less — all while lowering overall IT costs. But as more organizations make the shift, it’s critical that they address the inherent risks of working in collaborative cloud environments — particularly regarding the potential loss of software-as-a-service (SaaS) data. With the fast-growing adoption of SaaS apps, like Office 365, at an all-time high, the timing for fully understanding cloud data protection couldn’t be more critical.   

In this slideshow, Jeff Erramouspe, VP and general manager of Spanning by EMC, outlines five reasons why organizations should make data protection for SaaS data a top priority.
