Survey Reveals Need for Cloud Application Backup

Posted by Zaid Rasid

With the recent launch of Asigra Cloud Backup™ Version 12, featuring data protection of cloud-based applications, a qualitative survey commissioned by Asigra and performed by the customer metrics and research organization Techvalidate, confirms a need for more comprehensive data protection strategies.

Before we look at the survey results, it is important to note the increasing growth in SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) adoption. As mentioned in our recent press release, it is expected that the cloud software market will reach $67.3 billion in revenue by 2016; with Customer Resource Management (CRM) leading all other enterprise application areas in net new SaaS/Cloud application deployments.

Of the enterprises surveyed, close to 55% of them are using, but with only 22% indicating that SaaS/Cloud-based application data is incorporated into their corporate backup infrastructure.

With so much data being stored in the cloud with third party vendors like, it's not surprising to see that 21% of survey respondents cited data security as their biggest concern.

To make sense of the survey results, we compiled a SlideShare presentation that you can view below for a better understanding of the sentiment many organizations have regarding the security of their data in the cloud. It's plain to see, that there is a new paradigm in the way IT professionals must architect their backup environments.
