Dealing with today's endpoint data protection challenges
Sponsored by SearchDisasterRecovery.com
This chapter is included in the Overcome today's disaster recovery challenges E-Book.
The decentralization of data among endpoint devices has been a game-changer for IT professionals. After decades of delivering consolidated infrastructure platforms, i.e., servers, there has been an increased distribution of data as end users demand enhanced flexibility in the devices they are using in the workplace. Don't confuse endpoint and BYOD -- today's endpoint devices include self-purchased, bring-your-own-device units, but also an immeasurable number of corporate-issued devices.
This e-book will look at the challenges of legacy endpoint mechanisms, why endpoint data protection is more important than protecting the device itself, and the two mandates to ensure successful endpoint data protection: lightweight delivery and management that is highly visible. It will also examine why the endpoint data protection mechanism must give the employee and employer access to needed data.
