The Golden Rule of Recovery

While the risks and challenges of data storage, protection and recovery will evolve over time, the most important one will remain unchanged: Businesses need access to their data – all of it, all the time.

The high-profile data breaches of sensitive customer information are not the only type of data events that organizations should fear (and prevent). Any data loss can cause significant damage to the organization's ability to serve its customers and keep the business moving – ultimately, any data loss can negatively impact the bottom line. Prepare yourself so that when the time comes, you will be able to understand exactly what happened in a data loss event and put your data back together exactly how it was before — even with the restraints of today's relational SaaS databases.

Cloud adoption shows no sign of slowing down. Couple high reliability and high availability with minimal IT overhead management costs, and it is easy to see why so many organizations are implementing cloud-based infrastructure and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. And yet, few have the mechanics in place to protect the data within their SaaS infrastructure. Most organizations still mistakenly assume their SLA agreements cover data (they don't) or rely on legacy backup tools to handle new cloud-based systems (they can't).

In an age where data is the lifeblood of every business, companies are vulnerable to costly, irreparable damage if they aren't prepared to protect data within the SaaS infrastructure from cyber threats, data loss, malicious (or careless) employees, and simple user errors.

In this slideshow, OwnBackup CEO Sam Gutmann outlines the top three data dangers lurking in cloud environments and offers three tips for how to manage data protection and backup in a SaaS-based world.
