Protecting endpoints has never been more critical. With more of your team working remotely, be sure that they and their data is protected and recoverable.
What is endpoint protection?
Critical business data is being created and stored on end-user laptops and desktops. Instead of residing within the relative safety of your data center, it is on a user’s local drive. With IT resources scarce, you want to be sure that your file system data is protected and that in the case of data loss, the user can recover files or folders on their own.
Endpoint protection automates that process for you by providing:
- Scheduled backups of key folders without user intervention
- No interruption of local machine performance during the backup process
- Self-service recovery of files and folders from previous backups
- Web-based geolocation to locate a lost laptop
- Ability to remote wipe a lost or stolen laptop
