In Netherlands investigators discovered, that a total of 70,500 Gmail accounts were compromised by the malicious Pony botnet.

As awareness of public cloud services grow, many users switch to cloud SaaS platforms and services like G Suite (formerly known as Google Apps): Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google Photos, and Google Contacts.

Google Apps Security is Your Responsibility!

You enjoy using all above  Google Apps, but suddenly…  a data loss disaster happens. A human error, phishing attack, malware, ransomware infection or a digital robot can gain access to your cloud account and delete your files, messages or other critical information. If you or someone else deleted your content, there is no way to recover your data. Data loss may result in a huge damage for your business and/or personal life. Your business and personal data protection solution is in the Cloud.

The most effective and reliable way for individuals and companies to safeguard data is to back it up using leading cloud service providers, such as Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Amazon’s S3. The provider works like shuttle,  loaded with your data,  transfers the copies, from one  giant cloud to another on a daily basis. Cloud providers perform automatic and secure data transfer and data storage services, having no access to the customer data.

However, there is very important thing: automatization, in this case,  is necessary  for data, but it is not the best way for customer relations. Many cloud service providers offer paid only services. Some of them provide cloud backup free for a short trial period of 15 or 30 days. For example, Spinbackup offers free for life accounts with 2GB cloud storage with no time limits.  This is definitely not enough for Game of Thrones spin, but pretty sufficient for the thousands of Gmail messages and Google Drive files, or a dozen of photo albums.  Spinbackup is one of a few SaaS providers, which offers cloud backup services for G Suite (Google Apps) and Google Photos backup. As well as to work with backed up files/messages from within your cloud account and then sync with your Google account.
