Key features to look for in an endpoint backup solution
Endpoint users generate a high volume of sensitive company data. Protecting it is a top strategic objective for IT. An essential part of data protection strategy includes flexible recovery options that allow IT administrators to maintain user productivity without draining help desk resources. That’s why businesses need a purpose-built backup solution. Today, top-performing endpoint protection combines robust backup and recovery capabilities, for both devices and cloud platforms, with additional security features – like legal hold and remote wipe – that allow businesses to better control the large volume of data their users generate.
Consider how many identical copies of the same file are shared throughout an organization. When duplicate data lands in storage, it needs to be deduplicated to avoid storage bloat. But since the data lands in an encrypted state, deduplicating it can potentially leave data vulnerable. For businesses in regulated industries, this is a dealbreaker.
This guide focuses on how to identify, evaluate and implement endpoint backup that delivers on the top objectives for today’s IT professionals.
