Email Backup for Data Protection and Compliance

Email backup, protection and recovery are more important now than ever due to the dangers of data deletion coupled with increased compliance mandates. Big and small businesses across the globe are facing ever-increasing pressure of email data loss from hackers, irate or clumsy employees or systems issues.

Couple this email data danger with the ever-increasing need of regulatory compliance from GDPR, HIPAA and many more regulations and it becomes clear why an email backup solution is a necessary and critical tool for protecting business assets.

That’s why over two billion times a day Dropsuite backs up email and related data to help protect firms from over 100 countries around the world.

Protecting email data while complying with strict regulatory and legal compliance requirements is why Dropsuite offers two tiers of protection:

  • Email Backup (automated cloud-based protection)
  • Email Backup and Archiving (full data protection plus preservation)

Dropsuite’s state-of-the-art Email Backup and Archiving solution complies with a broad variety of regulatory laws including:

  • FINRA – Financial Industry Regulatory Authority
  • FRCP – Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
  • GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation
  • HIPAA –Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
  • SEC – Securities and Exchange Commission
  • SOX –Sarbanes-Oxley
  • Australia Corporations Act s286 and s262A
  • And more

Importantly, Dropsuite will not nickel and dime you for this critical regulatory compliance. There are never hidden fees or cumbersome set-up requirements with Dropsuite's email backup solution which includes:

  • No set up fees
  • No minimum purchases
  • No ingestion fees
  • No user agent to download and install
  • No limits to storage or retention periods

Military-Grade Email Data Protection

You can rest assured your email data is safe and secure with Dropsuite. TLS or SSL connections are used coupled with military-grade encryption using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to ensure your data is safe both in transit and at rest.

The Cloud Email Backup Myth

“I don’t need email backup, because I use a cloud service like Office 365, G Suite or Open-Xchange.”

Sadly, that’s the number one myth we hear all the time, and it absolutely is a myth. Although Office 365 and related cloud-based systems like G Suite do provide some limited ability to partially backup email data – they do not provide nearly what’s needed to properly protect email data and your business. And none of the major cloud ecosystems offer a backup-as-a-service — it’s just not one of their business offerings.

To protect their valuable business communications, smart organizations subscribe to SaaS email backup and archiving solutions such as those offered by Dropsuite.

Quick tips for properly protecting your email data:

  1. Set up frequent automatic data backups
  2. Backup emails, files, attachments etc.
  3. Use a cloud-based, 3rd party location
  4. Test quickly searching for and accessing your data on demand 
  5. Restore lost email files, download your data, or migrate as needed
