Yes, Your SaaS Data Needs Backup 

Just because your softwareasaservice lives in the cloud doesn’t mean your data is backed up. But Zerto Backup for SaaS, powered by KeepIt, can change that. 

SaaS solutions are terrific. They’re scalable, affordable, fast, and when something goes wrong with the software, the vendor fixes it and gets it back online. But a lot of users don’t know that when (not if) something goes wrong with their datathey are responsible, not the SaaS vendor.  

Fortunately, Zerto has you covered. We’ve launched Zerto Backup for SaaS powered by KeepIt to provide integrated, seamless backup and recovery for some of the most popular SaaS solutions, including Microsoft 365, Salesforce, Google Workspace, and Microsoft Dynamics. 

When you know your responsibilities, you can respond to them but with SaaS, it’s not always clear. 

IT professionals have to stay ahead of trouble. But it’s hard to avoid trouble if you don’t know it’s your job to prepare for it. SaaS solutions use a shared responsibility model. It looks like this: 

  • SaaS provider’s responsibilityApplication, operating system, virtualization, hardware, and network; they solve problems with hardware failure, software failure, natural disasters, power outages, and physical intrusion. 
  • Your datayour responsibilityUsers, data, and administration; you solve problems with human errors, programmatic errors, malicious insiders, external hackers, and viruses or malware. 

When you consider that human error alone accounts for 73 percent of data loss (according to Aberdeen), you realize that you have a big responsibility on your hands, and you need a solution. 

Zerto is an expert in SaaS backup. 

To make sure that Zerto’s new backup solution for SaaS was as good as our other solutions, we partnered with KeepIt, a leader in backup for SaaS. Zerto Backup for SaaS is a new backup and recovery offering for managing and protecting SaaS cloud data that allows you to recover business-critical data in seconds with Zerto’s new fully automated backup and recovery solution for Microsoft 365, Salesforce, Google Workspace, Microsoft Dynamics, and more.
