It is estimated that in 2016 the security technology industry will be worth $86 billion.

Data loss is something that every company dreads. Not only does it decrease customer confidence but it also kills profit margins.

Spanning Cloud Apps, a provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) data backup and recovery, has recently announced an update to the widely used Spanning Backup for Salesforce as well as a new service called Spanning Backup for Google Apps.

The updated Spanning Backup for Salesforce contains several new features including an on-page direct restore option. This lets users go back and restore any point-in-time Salesforce records or attachments. This can be extremely useful to salespeople because it allows them to compare current and prior records to see where they are.

Spanning Backup for Google Apps does exactly what its name suggests, it backs up Google App information. What makes this tool so interesting is that Spanning guarantees 100 percent of the data will be restored otherwise users will receive 10 times their money back for each failed restore operation.

Spanning offers a 14-day free trial for both services however after that there is a fee. Spanning Backup for Salesforce users are charged $30 per user, per year while Spanning Backup for Google Apps costs $40 per user, per year.
