Afi intelligently handles Google API errors (4xx, 5xx) and uses a prediction engine to avoid the Google Workspace™ API calls limit. In case of any issues, Afi automatically reschedules & retries problematic backup runs. 

Afi automatically manages backup schedules based on the protection levels (SLAs) assigned by admin for Google Workspace™ organizational units or user accounts. New users are automatically discovered & protected. Users deleted from Google Workspace™ are automatically archived and are always available for restore.

⚫ Q&A

➊ Why do you need to backup Google Workspace™?
Organizations use cloud Google Workspace™ backup to protect data from accidental data deletions, user errors and emerging threats such as cloud ransomware and hacker attacks. Based on IDC and Gartner surveys around 30% of businesses backup their cloud applications.

➋ Does Google Workspace™ provide any built-in recovery capabilities?
Google Workspace™ enables admins to partially recover data deleted within  20-25 days. Most organizations use a 3rd party backup solution because the the time frame is too short. Google Workspace™ also provides built-in versioning that protects your data against accidental overwrites and ransomware attacks, but some organizations find the capabilities insufficient.

➌ Do I need to backup user's Google Workspace™ data if my organization has Google Vault™?
Google Vault™ provides retention and e-discovery features and it can help to partially recover deleted G Suite data. However organizations often use a G Suite backup tool in addition to Google Vault™ to overcome its limitations (no data is retained for deleted G Suite users, no versioning and no recovery is available for Google Drive™ folder structures).

➍ Does Afi backs up Shared (Team) Drives?
Yes, we provide full-fidelity backup for Google Drive™ and Shared Drives, including the backup of complex folder structures, files metadata (author, creation/modification dates, etc) and Google document IDs.

➎ Can I backup user Gmail data without exposing the backup contents to IT team?
Yes, you can configure custom administrative roles that will enable your team to manage the backup and restore operations, without the ability to view the data. You can also disable admin access to Afi application for your Google Workspace™ super admins.

➏ What is the maximum backup frequency available in Afi?
You can configure 1-24x per day backup runs. In addition Afi AI engine will perform out of schedule preemptive backups of your G Suite data in case of any security threats (e.g. detected encryption activity or mass deletions of Google Drive™ files). 

➐ What are the main advantages of Afi compared to other G Suite backup solutions?
Afi provides 2-3x faster backup and restore performance compared to legacy solutions. Afi AI engine prevents backup errors and automatically manages the backup schedules in order to provide resilient service independent of admin supervision.

➑ Is Afi GDPR and HIPAA compliant?
Yes, we comply with GDPR and other major data protection regulations such as HIPAA, EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and CCPA. We will sign the DPA upon request.
