Endpoint protection by enterprise IT is no longer an option. There is too much risk for data loss and leakage. Maintaining productivity is also critical, the time it takes to re-create data, rebuild laptops from scratch and migrate to new OS versions can all be avoided with the proper investment in an endpoint data protection solution.
IT can no longer sit on the sidelines hoping that users “do the right thing” with an organization’s data. Doing so leads to a variety of problems including loss of data control. IT needs an endpoint data protection solution that adds value to the users, so they will embrace it. It should also add value to the organization so it can protect itself from data loss as well as leverage corporate data on user endpoints. Finally an endpoint protection strategy should bring value to IT itself so its job can be completed easier and more efficiently. HP’s Connected Backup is an excellent example of solutions that can do just that.
