Unboxing NetBackup SaaS Protection's support to

Level 1

In the 21st century, how often do we use physical hard drives over cloud storage? According to analysts, less than half of the time. Cloud storage is now the preferred choice of customers to keep their data saved and to access it from anywhere, thus reducing the risk of data loss and increasing the ease of access.

Box is one such cloud-based content management system with collaboration, security, analytics, and other features related to files and information. You can use Box to securely store, manage, and share files.

According to a report by Okta, Box is the third-most popular enterprise cloud shared data solution for businesses aiming to meet this need and ensure that teams are productive and collaborative.



With recent advancements in technology and newly-introduced ransomware attacks, users' data is considered high risk.

NetBackup SaaS Protection (NSP) provides the customer with all key features required to keep Box data safe. Customers can create a Box connector using a few clicks with the help of the NetBackup SaaS Protection console. This connector establishes a seamless connection with the Box API to collect and restore data. While restoring, Admins have an option to choose files and folders for a specific user or user group and restore them to the original location or save it externally. NSP preserves version history, tags, or any notes present in a document throughout the backup and restore process. Data changes get merged, compressed, encrypted, and stored in the cloud region of your choice. Since NetBackup SaaS Protection is a single-tenant cloud instance it keeps your backup data segregated and isolated
