Why Read This Report

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is a popular element of a sound technology strategy. While almost all SaaS vendors explicitly state that protecting data is the customer's responsibility, infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders usually send critical data to those providers without any plan for ensuring data resiliency. Back up SaaS data or risk losing customers, partners, and employees. Stop leaving the door open to data loss, and start proactively protecting cloud data before it's too late. This report helps I&O leaders navigate the landscape of SaaS services and data recovery. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
