Backup as a Service (BaaS) is an easy to use solution that is relevant for all businesses operating and engaging in a cloud environment. BaaS aims to provide companies with ample and efficient data protection, recovery strategies, and cost-effective solutions managed by a central dashboard. This dashboard allows companies to set their management strategies and policies to match their long and short-term goals, aiding scalability without exposing a business to some of the risks and complexities associated with data growth.

Data Risks
Unfortunately, while data drives business today, it also creates avenues for attack that companies must be prepared for. Data breaches, such as those seen in the WannaCry attack of 2017 showcase just how vulnerable businesses can be in the modern market. Fortunately, Backup-as-a-Service provides a means for companies to secure file transfer methods and offers a reliable backup solution. BaaS utilises file encryption to secure data and provides the ability to recover data and files via Recovery Time Objectives that match a business’s requirements. This not only allows companies to protect their data assets but also ensures that they are recoverable should the organisation fall victim to an attack.

Data Growth
On top of increased security risks, data growth also creates complexity, and increased volumes mean that backup systems must operate continuously to keep up. This leads to extra costs, often due to the need for new servers and time and challenges associated with maintaining and monitoring high data quantities and the infrastructure required to manage them. BaaS provides a solution by providing businesses with virtually unlimited, managed backup space, saving companies on storage and operational costs. Companies can then reduce the costs and time associated with maintenance, infrastructure, and analysing of high volumes of data in-house. They also obtain access to data insights that are relevant to their corporate strategy, as well as scalable cloud storage to match their growth needs.
