Ensure SaaS protection with Google Workspace backup

Ensure SaaS protection with Google Workspace backup

By David Weiss

What is Google Workspace backup?

Google Workspace, formerly known as G Suite, is Google’s integrated suite of business productivity and collaboration tools. It includes Gmail, Drive, Meet, Calendar, Chat, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Keep, Sites, Forms, and Currents. Using a third-party solution for Google Workspace backup is important because Google cannot restore some deleted data. Comprehensive data safety is ultimately the user’s responsibility.

Google Workspace backup keeps data safe

Google Workspace is widely used in corporate environments, with six million paying business users tallied in a recent report. Organizations are often unaware that their service agreement doesn’t hold Google responsible for backup and recovery of all your data. For example, Google cannot restore data that was permanently deleted more than 25 days ago, or restore data from users’ Trash.

Managed service providers (MSPs) today must have a comprehensive backup and data protection plan for their clients. A third-party SaaS data backup is an essential step for data loss prevention.


Human error, in the form of accidental deletion, is the primary reason that businesses experience data loss. However, there are many other threats that make Google Workspace backup necessary:

  • Malicious deletion
  • Ransomware
  • Virus or other malware
  • Software corruption
  • External hackers
  • Damage to hard disk or storage
  • Natural disaster

The business world is moving rapidly from on-premises productivity tools to cloud applications. In a recent report, Datto found that cloud productivity services are now #1 on the list of MSPs’ managed service offerings.
