Protect Critical Data

Backup as a Service is like an insurance policy on your company’s most valuable asset – its data.

The Consequences are Unthinkable

From compromised customer info to devastating ransomware attacks, the stakes have never been higher for companies who don’t lock down their data. Broadleaf Group works with hundreds of clients who rely on Backup as a Service (BaaS) for a customizable cloud-based storage system that can be accessed and restored at any time, from anywhere.

Service Highlights

Online backup service, also known as cloud backup or backup as a service (BaaS), is a method of offsite data storage in which files, folders, or the entire contents of a hard drive are regularly backed up by a service vendor to a remote secure cloud-based data repository over a network connection. Backup as a Service (BaaS) is an approach to backing up data that involves purchasing backup and recovery services from an online data backup provider. Instead of performing backup with a centralized, on-premise IT department, BaaS connects systems to a private, public or hybrid cloud managed by the outside provider. Backup as a Service is easier to manage than other offsite services. Instead of worrying about rotating and managing tapes or hard disks at an offsite location, data storage administrators can offload maintenance and management to the provider.

Service Value and Use Cases

Icon - checkmark in a circle
  • BaaS may be used when an organization has outgrown its legacy storage backup and would have to go through a costly upgrade, or lacks the resources for on-premise, high-level backup. Outsourcing backup and recovery to a provider can also keep data accessible or restorable from a remote location in case of an outage or failure.
  • BaaS eliminate CapEx and upgrade headaches with easy subscription-based pricing. Switching the organization to OpEx subscription.

  • Eliminates time-consuming infrastructure silos and simplify management by moving backup off-site to a service provider.
  • This provides air gap protection for the most valuable data off-site on redundant infrastructure and when needed rapidly recover it to anywhere.

  • If data is lost or deleted for any reason, backups are readily available and easily located. Thanks to multiple levels of redundancy, BaaS keeps multiple copies of your data in separate locations. The more levels of redundancy the better because each level further protects your data against loss or potential corruption. With encryption, archiving and rapid recovery built-in, BaaS can accompany all business continuity plans as an element of disaster recovery services.
  • Most BaaS providers can also make passing compliance audits a lot more straightforward.
