If you think protecting business data was important when everyone was all in the same office, then double or triple that importance now that we’re in a remote, hybrid world.

Most SMBs would struggle to run their customer service, supply chain, service delivery, hiring and virtually all other operations without email and cloud backup services. Email is one of the most popular methods of communication, which also makes it the most vulnerable. Meanwhile, employees store all kinds of files and sensitive information in places like OneDrive, Google Drive and SharePoint. On top of that, there are compliance requirements and privacy concerns to think about.

Fortunately, third-party cloud backup and archiving solutions like Dropsuite exist to help protect all your critical email data and restore it in case of disaster.

Regular email and cloud backup aren’t enough for today’s security demands

While productivity tools such as Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace have some ability to partially back up data, they do not properly protect sensitive information at the standard many businesses require. To stay both protected and functioning in the event of disaster, organizations would do well to invest in a third-party cloud backup solution. Dropsuite enables employees to remain as productive as possible, with fewer disruptions due to obstacles posed by remote work, power outages and potential cyberthreats.

Many SMBs describe the total loss of email and other important business data as potentially devastating. However, with correct cloud backup and email archiving procedures in place, businesses can rest easy knowing important employee and customer data is being stored safely, and will be accessible and recoverable if something goes wrong.

Cloud backup is also a necessity for ensuring compliance with various regulations. Even if your company operates in an unregulated industry or space, there’s a number of reasons why your business needs solid backup and archiving:

  • Audits require full and accurate data going back many years
  • Lawsuits or regulatory investigations may ask for your email data to be placed on legal hold so as not to be altered or deleted
  • Fast and accurate universal archiving search saves valuable time on email and file sharing (SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams) queries

Dropsuite keeps your organization covered in all these areas, making it as simple as possible for businesses to access files—however old they might be—whenever they need to.

Visibility and control over necessary employee files are crucial for ensuring proper cybersecurity and compliance best practices

Dropsuite’s cloud backup and email archiving software includes Insights BI, an email analysis tool that gives you a robust look into your organization’s mail ecosystem. Providers and IT administrators can use these analytics to investigate or recover precious data. Trends identified by Dropsuite’s Insights BI feature and its advanced search can help you:

  • Better protect your email traffic (i.e., malicious emails, identify internal bad actors)
  • Save money (i.e., on storage by identifying unused areas)
  • Staying Compliant
  • Preparing for compliance or legal matters

Accurate intelligence and reporting can add critical functionality for your business, saving time in areas such as HR, legal and security.
