With the ever-increasing number of employees working from home and saving data on personal devices – Backup as a Service can be a great option for organisations to protect their end-user’s vulnerable data.
Backup as a Service (BaaS) offers an alternative to traditional storage methods. Data backup service providers can use this off-site storage method to back up an organisation’s files, folders or hard drives to a remote secure public cloud. This helps protect the data from cyberattacks, ransomware, natural disasters, and user error by making the data recoverable from a remote backup repository.
BaaS providers vary in terms of what they can backup. Some cloud backup service providers offer comprehensive data protection services and can backup almost anything. Others, however, are more niche in their scope and might focus on protecting a specific SaaS application, such as Microsoft 365.
Acronis Cyber Backup have been named a BaaS provider to watch as they can protect more than 20 platforms, including physical and virtual machines, PCs and mobile devices, and NAS appliances. They offer bare-metal recovery capabilities, as well as a restore-anywhere feature that can restore backups to dissimilar hardware or perform physical-to-virtual conversions. The software can also perform granular recovery operations, such as recovering an individual email message.
Acronis offers several noteworthy features to keep backups secure, including an AI-powered anti-ransomware feature. The software also generates a CyberFit score that helps organisations assess their level of protection.
Other features they provide include blockchain backup notarization, retention rules and backup replication to help even the largest organisations manage and ensure the integrity of their backups.
