When was the last time you backed up your data? If your data is ever compromised, having a backup makes recovering it a lot simpler. As easy as it may sound, there are different methods for protecting data beyond the cloud. Let’s take a look at them.

Data Backup Strategies

One way of protecting your data, outside of using the cloud, is to leverage the SaaS capabilities and download your data. It can be tedious and time-consuming, as well as create clutter because you will end up with many files. Keep in mind, if these files are also saved in the cloud, you are still in a compromised situation.

The second approach is to build your own backup software in-house. This is resource intensive and lies outside the core competencies for most businesses. Even if you have the skills in-house, the opportunity costs can be prohibitive. Plus, once you’ve built a custom backup solution, you’ll still need someone to regularly perform backups and ensure everything is working as it should.

The third option is using a third-party solution for your data backup needs. Known as BaaS (Backup-as-a-Service), these solutions provide automated backup and restore services that allow you to quickly recover from accidents and/or malicious attacks with just a few clicks. This can be a great solution for smaller teams, or teams that want to focus their development energy on their core product (and not running backup scripts).

Remember, always do your research, and when it comes to lost data, you don’t want to be stuck in an endless phone tree, waiting on hold – you want your problem solved, quickly. Can your chosen BaaS service deliver a solution in a timely manner?
