Enterprise Strategy Group and Spanning to Discuss SaaS Data Protection in June 9 Webinar

AUSTIN, TX – May 28, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spanning Cloud Apps LLC, an EMC company and a leading provider of SaaS data protection, today announced findings from an evaluation report by analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). The report is based on an ESG Lab Test Drive of Spanning Backup for Google Apps, which validated the solution for delivering the assurance that Google Apps data is fully protected and secure, as well as easy to recover.

As businesses continue moving their workloads to cloud-based applications to enable better productivity and collaboration, ESG recognizes that the complexity of cloud service offerings present new challenges for IT departments responsible for managing, monitoring and protecting SaaS applications. With the goal of obtaining a real-world point of view of data protection and recovery offerings for organizations relying on or considering adopting Google Apps, the ESG Lab Test Drive validates that Spanning Backup:

  • Delivers automated and on-demand backups with granular recovery capabilities to Google Apps environments;
  • Provides data protection through monitoring and notifications, and end-user self-service restores;
  • Is easy to acquire and implement via the Google Apps Marketplace, and offers a smooth transition by supporting each Google App component in a way that is familiar to current cloud users; and
  • Expands application support to include Salesforce and Office 365.

“Savvy IT professionals understand the importance of cloud data protection and the value of powerful backup and recovery for any SaaS implementation,” said Jeff Erramouspe, VP and GM of Spanning by EMC. “Validation from ESG Research is very important to inform the enterprise market about Spanning’s powerful automated SaaS data protection capabilities that removes one of the top concerns of adopting Google Apps, as well as Salesforce and Microsoft Office 365.”
