Remote backup of data on endpoint devices like laptops and smart phones is a challenge for IT staffs. Because these devices are often disconnected from an organization's network, data created and stored on these devices can go unprotected for considerable lengths of time. In a study of 140 IT managers in the U.S., remote laptop backup software vendor Druva Software reported that 89 respondents said their organizations didn't have a laptop backup policy. Endpoint devices can be backed up incrementally over the Internet with deduplication; the backup process can operate in the background while the user is working.
