Perhaps one of the most common use cases for disaster recovery and data protection solutions is recovering a deleted file or number of files. It is commonplace to have users either accidentally delete files or intentionally delete files, only to realize it was not the file they assumed, or they performed a Save operation instead of a Save As an operation, overwriting valuable data.
While Google does not provide native, seamless backups within the Gmail service itself, there is a mechanism that can be used to export an offline copy of your Gmail data to a local file. Gmail allows exporting all Google data via the Download your data function found in the Google account settings. In the context of Gmail, the “Download your data” function downloads the file in the MBOX format. There is no direct way through the Google account settings to import MBOX to Gmail, however, there is a way around.
Google Drive Storage is arguably one of, if not the most popular cloud storage service platforms. It contains a wealth of features and functionality that allows it to be used as more than simply storage, but a tool to enhance productivity. Using Google Drive tools effectively and efficiently allows getting the most out of this very popular platform for storage, editing, and collaboration. Google Drive has a lot of “under the cover” features that provide extremely powerful tools and solutions for getting the most out of data that you store in the Google Drive cloud. Let’s take a look at 10 Best Google Drive hacks to make your life much easier.
Cloud storage has revolutionized the way data can be accessed, edited, shared, and otherwise worked with. There are a wide range of options for individuals and organizations alike for accessing data in the cloud. Google Drive is arguable one of the top public cloud options for storing and accessing data in the public cloud provides a number of really great features, functionality, and benefits to tenants. With public cloud services and especially with data housed there, security is one of the top concerns for cloud today.
With news headlines of data leak and data breaches happening frequently, data security is a top priority. While public cloud vendors have greatly improved security features and offerings, it is often up to the individuals and organizations to determine how these security features are implemented and ultimately, who has access to data. Let’s take a look at how to secure Google Drive to see some very practical steps that can be taken to drastically improve the security of Google Drive.
Despite all the technological solutions to any problem in today’s world, there is always the human-factor to consider. The best technology cannot account for the actions and specifically the mistakes that humans can make which may totally undermine the solution that technology provides. This is especially true in the world of security. The best security defenses can be totally compromised by a single individual making the wrong decision, either accidentally or knowingly.
When considering a fully featured and well thought out security plan, the human factor is an extremely important part of the equation, and arguably just as important as the technology component of the solution. In this article, we will take a look at cyber security awareness across an SMB organization.
Gaining news exposure is generally a good thing for most businesses, especially if it is something positive presented. However, there is one type of headline that no organization wants to make. In recent years, there has been an explosion of almost unbelievable data breaches making news headlines that have resulted in anything but a positive outcome for the organizations involved.
There is certainly no shortage of cloud security concerns for businesses today. There are constantly new headlines, blog posts, statistics, and other information pointing to the fact that security breaches, malware, ransomware, data leak events, phishing and other security concerns are not going away. In fact, they escalating as attackers are getting more proficient with delivery mechanisms and new ways of infiltrating networks and end user systems. The stakes today are higher than ever before. Data is driving business for most organizations who utilize technology to carry out normal business operations. Unlike only a decade or so ago, the number of businesses who don’t utilize technology for some type of business-critical operation is few and far between.
Security threats are among the most alarming concerns for IT professionals and C-level executives alike. In one major security breach, a company can literally be taken out of business, depending on the nature of the breach and the data that was exposed. There are many different types of security vulnerabilities and concerns that organizations today need to be aware of, however, some of the most successful types of compromising techniques used by threat actors are often the most basic and traditional methods that have been used for years.
There are many incredibly interesting and fast-moving currents in the public cloud movement for information technology landscapes today. The digital landscape for the enterprise is continuing to become more cloud-centric and complex, with hybrid networks extending between on-premises and public cloud and even between public clouds. This is creating multi-cloud environments, spanning public cloud vendors and often numerous on-premises sites. Data is becoming more centralized to cloud, instead of on-premises. This is creating exciting opportunities for innovation and agility. However, cloud infrastructure is creating complexities when it comes to the world of security and compliance regulations.
