Cloud backup is a Software as a Service (SaaS)-based solution leveraged by enterprises to backup their
business-critical data in order to avoid data loss in the event of manmade or natural disasters. Enterprise
data is backed up in an encrypted form to enhance security over cloud. Cloud backup solutions provide
various benefits, such as data protection, data retention, central management and monitoring, and autoscaling,
in addition to lower infrastructure costs, easy and simple deployment, and integration of cloudbackup with other enterprise applications.
