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.
