G Suite Backup
Google don’t backup your data. We do.
G Suite (aka Google Workspace) is a great productivity tool for business users, but it can’t do everything. While Google do look after cloud infrastructure reliability, they don’t backup your data. That’s YOUR responsibility. And reliable as it is, the ‘cloud’ is based in physical datacentres, meaning they’re not immune to service outages or data loss. To protect your Gmail, Calendar, Contacts and Drive data, you need to use a third-party backup solution.
You’re in the right place.
Why Backup your G Suite data?
Google’s Bin and version history only provide basic protection. Also, if a user account is deleted and not restored in time, it is purged from the Workspace servers and all data is lost.
Google saves on server space by restricting its retention policy for a limited time and set of scenarios. When deleted data falls outside the retention period, it’s lost permanently.
It happens! Rouge employees can delete incriminating data from G Suite servers without your immediate knowledge. If you notice too late, recovery of data is impossible.
Dangerous malware evolutions like ‘ransomcloud’ can encrypt your data in the cloud and hold it to ransom. Even if you pay, cybercriminals still may not release it. Why risk it?
Legal & Compliance
Storing data for long periods is a legal obligation in many industries. If you cannot provide historical data, e.g. if it’s requested by law, you could face litigation for non-compliance.
Never store your data with a single cloud vendor, no matter how big they are. Even Google is vulnerable to outages, so always have at least two other sources of secure backup.
