Many businesses are now graduating from conventional storage norms and are moving their data to cloud-hosted databases.
However, information stored in the cloud is not as safe and secured as most service would like you to believe. Information placed in the cloud is very vulnerable to virus, accidental deletion or overwrite, hard disk damage, malicious end-user actions, and glitches in the network to mention a few.
Other scenarios where customers could lose data include:
- Malicious deletion by a disgruntled employee or outside entity
- Malware damage or ransomware attacks
- Operational errors such as accidental data overwrites
- Lost data due to cancelled app licenses
SaaS apps provide limited protection against accidental data loss scenarios, and sometimes even less so when it comes to ransomware attacks or malicious end user activity. The reason being that many vendors operate under the “Shared Responsibility Model” – they only claim responsibility for areas that they have complete control over. Microsoft and Google must maintain the availability of their applications and protect their servers from disaster scenarios, but the end user is responsible for the data being created within their applications.
There’s a common misconception among SaaS users that backup isn’t necessary for their data because it exists in the cloud. However, this is patently untrue. SaaS applications are just as vulnerable to data loss as on-premise apps. Why? Because the #1 cause of data loss is human error. People delete stuff, open phishing emails, accidentally download malware, and more.
The Xari Saas Protect is a backup solution for cloud-based data, offering archiving, search and restore solutions for SaaS applications. With this solution, users are assured that data from cloud-based applications are secured when they are transferred to another cloud-hosted database. The system is also capable of restoring lost or corrupted objects in seconds via the very intuitive admin interface. We offer automated backups which can be scheduled to three times a day. Additional backups can be configured on demand. Lost files are not really lost, Xari Saas Protect can easily restore them in just minutes.
With the Xari SaaS Protect, your data in the cloud is totally safe and secured.
No need to pay software license fees to retain data. The system enables users to archive historical user data based on retention policy. On top of that, document ownership is transferable from a former employee to a new one. That means access to critical data owned and managed by a former employee is not lost once that employee leaves the company.
We keep a second, independent copy of your data which you can easily access when your cloud-based apps are down and rendered inaccessible. That means your business operations continue even if your cloud apps are unavailable. The software also protects your data from ransomware attacks. Once a ransomware successfully locks your files in the cloud, we can easily perform a data restore to a point in time prior to the encryption of your files.
