What is the process that is used to backup Gmail data?

A majority of Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection for Google Apps customers have their Gmail services backed up using the REST API.

A small number of Gmail services are still being backed up using IMAP. If that's the case, IMAP access must be enabled and must be configured to access the ‘All Mail’ label in your Gmail account. To confirm whether or your domain is using IMAP or REST API to backup Gmail, contact Support.
