Sponsored by SearchDataBackup.com
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.
This Drill Down takes a look at remote backups today, focusing on the challenges and solutions available to address endpoint device backup. You will learn the approaches for backing up laptops today so you can decide which approach is right for your organization's specific needs.
