At Polarverse our policy is if we don’t use it, we don’t sell it. This starts with computers, to phones to cloud services. I’d like to share with you a recent personal experience I had recently that made me very glad that we eat our own dog food.
There’s a common misconception that user data in SaaS applications (i.e. Office 365, Gsuite, etc) is fully backed up. It’s more likely that an employee will delete something they end up needing two weeks later than the possibility of all of Google’s servers being destroyed by a storm. In fact, SaaS applications usually aren’t the responsible party for data loss, but they aren’t built to protect against accidental or malicious actions either.
