Conquer the endpoint backup challenge
Sponsored by IBM
Endpoint backup has typically been left to end users or ignored altogether. However, the increased use of smartphones and tablets is driving interest in the technology. Also, the software is evolving and converging with other technologies aimed at increasing user productivity. One challenge for backing up laptops and mobile devices is that they aren't always connected to a corporate network. They must be backed up over the Internet -- which can be troublesome -- or when they reconnect. Depending on how much time passes between backups, this could leave a good deal of data unprotected.
This handbook looks at how vendors are addressing the challenges associated with backing up these devices, the convergence of mobile backup with file sharing and security, confusion about the difference between file sync and backup, and how to choose a solution that is right for your organization's needs.
