Keepit's Take on The Forrester New Wave™: SaaS Application Data Protection, Q4 2021

The adoption of SaaS applications was widely enhanced through the global pandemic of Covid-19 as businesses around the world had to enable their employees to work and collaborate digitally. While SaaS providers (such as Microsoft, Google, and Salesforce) focus on their platform uptime, their clients are left alone with their data resiliency and durability needs. Therefore, SaaS backup providers are flooding the market, offering solutions for widely adopted platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace.
