Background

Industry: Social Media Marketing Agency

Use Case: Ransomware Protection, Shared Items Control, Security Monitoring

Headquarters: Denver, CO (USA)

GroupHugs is an organic social media marketing agency founded in 2019, and they are based in Denver, CO, USA. This social media marketing agency provides services for Youtube and Facebook. They offer services to Youtube customers such as channel management and provide the ability to create, collect, and grow fans for channels. They also optimize existing YouTube channels that are struggling with growing a fanbase. GroupHugs also provides Facebook group management that helps manage and optimize groups and communities for their customers. They use Google Workspace, including Google Drive, to complete their daily tasks and share data within and outside their organization.

Challenges & Needs

GroupHugs began their search for cloud ransomware protection and data security solutions to protect valuable customer and employee data. They were in the market for a solution that allows them to monitor employee activity, regulate any data shared outside their domain, and for an automated response plan for ransomware attacks.

Ransomware attacks have been on the rise. Since GroupHugs had over 60,000+ items and over 250GB of data, they needed to find a solution to reduce downtime if being hit by malware. One of GroupHugs’ main goals was to acquire a security solution that provides additional protection for the data belonging to their customers and not only them but also their customers.

The Solution

After reviewing multiple solutions in the Google Workspace Marketplace to provide ransomware protection, security monitoring, and sharing event monitoring, they decided to sign up with SpinOne. With Ransomware attacks being so prevalent, SpinOne’s automated ransomware protection gives GroupHugs comfort knowing that they have Automated 24/7 protection.

They were pleased that any encryption events would automatically be detected and stopped. A new unencrypted copy of their data would be recovered from their previous backup – all automatically, with no agent required.

Since GroupHugs works with companies outside of their organization, SpinOne’s data-sharing monitoring tool grants GroupHugs the ability to create sharing management policies to prevent possible data leaks. GroupHugs’ decision to sign up with SpinOne was made easier knowing they would receive the best Google Workspace data security and management solution in the market.
