Myth 1: My SaaS solution is completely secure.

While leading SaaS solutions like Office 365, G Suite and Salesforce do offer top-of-the-line security along with robust recovery features, the truth is that they aren’t completely foolproof against all threats. They can’t protect your business data from malicious insiders, accidental deletions or hackers.

Solution: By regularly backing up your cloud data, you can protect it against a wide range of threats and unforeseen disasters.

 

Myth 2: My SaaS provider is solely responsible for my data security.

There is a widely held misconception that your SaaS provider is solely responsible for protecting your cloud data. The truth, however, is more nuanced. While a provider is expected to implement robust security to protect your data, businesses also are expected to play an active role.

Solution: Proactive steps like training your employees on data security best practices and implementing access control steps can ensure your data remains secure in the cloud.

 

Myth 3: My SaaS provider’s backup is all I need.

While some of the top SaaS providers offer features such as Recycle Bins and Vaults that can store accidentally deleted files, these solutions have limitations and don’t offer comprehensive backup and recovery.

Solution: Consider taking the help of an experienced IT service provider who can not only securely back up your data but also help you enhance your cloud security.
