Why is Backup as a Service important?

IT departments have struggled to balance their strategic technology roadmap with their day-to-day responsibilities. In some cases, to the detriment of security and data recovery solutions. This, together with the rapid cloud adoption, means that as we emerge from the pandemic, there is sea of fragmented data and dispersed technologies which present a significant risk to compliance and continuity.

Backup & Recovery

The challenge of remote working

The facilitation of data sharing for remote workers, whether for Office 365, One drive, Teams or general data storage, has caused many organisations to reconsider their cloud strategy and accelerate cloud adoption to ensure business continuity. However, many businesses have the incorrect data solution policies and practices in place, which has significantly increased their chances of a data breach. It is reported that UK Data theft and backup deletions by cybercriminals increased by 300% since the start of the pandemic , a trend which is only likely to increase throughout 2021, without appropriate remediation.

The future is to backup

With cloud adoption, backup evolved from its traditional role as simple copying of data to a remote location into a more sophisticated data protection and business continuity approach. Backup as a Service (BaaS) offers cloud-based data backup and recovery capabilities without the need for on-premises hardware to host and run the backup infrastructure. This enables IT departments to offload backup application hosting and management to a cloud service provider. The main business benefits are:

  • Clarity – The ability to outline procedures and schedules for backup frequency, allowing for ownership and responsibilities of each process. 
  • Choice– Enabling businesses to make key decision on the timing and frequency of backups, based on organisational needs.
  • Redundancy – Ensuring multiple backup copies to enable fast recovery.
  • Protection – Encryption of copies and data in flight and at rest.
  • Security – Ensuring hardening and multi-layered controls are implemented to prevent unwarranted access and the lateral movement or loss of data. 
  • Availability – Prompt access to your digitally archived data at your finger tips, when you need it.
