How to Ensure Google Data Security?

How to Ensure Google Data Security?


Autumn, 2013, was full of news about mailbox hackings. Famouse boxer, Ukraine revolutionary and  politician Vitaliy Klitschko hit the scandal over his private letters. Klitschko’s e-mail correspondence was hacked. As well as the mailboxes of many other politicians, journalists, high-ranking officials and businessmen. Most of hacked mailboxes were Gmail. In Netherlands, at the end of 2013, investigators discovered, that a total of 70,500 Gmail accounts were stolen by the malicious Pony botnet. Such problems are global.

It’s comfortable, to use SaaS platform like Google apps with its cloud services: Gmail, Google Drive files, Google Calendar, G+ Photos, Contacts and Tasks. You enjoy all above mentioned Google apps, but suddenly…  It happens. A human mistake, hacker, malware, virus or a digital robot can gain access to your account and delete your files, messages or other critical data.
Google is good, but Google is not God.
If you or someone else deleted your content, there is no way to recover this data. Data disappearance would have become a huge loss for business and/or private life.
The salvation awaits us in heaven. Or, to be more precise, for this case,  –  the salvation is in the cloud. It increases your critical data protection, if one more great cloud storage backs up your information, in addition to Google Cloud Storage.
A couple years ago some people questioned the reliability of confidentiality for cloud technologies. Now it’s quite obvious, that the level of isolation between the different organizations using the resources of a cloud,  and, thus, proper level of safety is obtained, when VPC (Virtual Ptivate Cloud)  is applied.
Simple and reliable way for individuals and companies,  to do such backup in Amazon’s S3, is to use cloud backup service providers. The provider works like shuttle,  loaded with your data,  transfers the copy of them, from one  giant cloud to another, on a daily basis. Such provider has no access to the data of clients, and provides the automatization of the data transfer and data storage.
However, there is very important thing: automatization, in this case,  is necessary  for data, but it is not the best way for customer relations. Choose the providers where you will receive human responses in answers for your questions.

One more essential detail. Many cloud service providers offer only paid services. Some of them provide back up free for a trial and short period: 15 or 30 days only. For example, Spinbackup offers free for life accounts with 2GB cloud storage, without any time limits.  That’s not enough for Game of Thrones spin, for sure. But this is quite relevant limit for the thousands of Gmail letters and Google Drive files, plus a dozen of photo albums.  By the way, not all the providers, which offer cloud backup services for Google Apps , will give you the possibility of photo backup. As well as to work with backed up files/messages from within your cloud service provider account and then sync with your Google account. So, take it into account when you are looking for the best cloud backup solution.

Spinbackup is the Right Cloud Backup and Data Security Solution.
