Retention gaps

For most clouds, retention capabilities vary by the subscription plan.

Complex data architectures

Legacy clouds with modern UI wrappers have complex data interdependencies.

Incomplete retention

Most popular SaaS apps do not take responsibility for data backup leaving critical data vulnerable to data loss events due to accidental deletions, human errors, or malicious attacks.
