When thieves take today's lightweight laptops, they're also helping themselves to sensitive client information, employee compensation and health records – all information required to be disclosed upon breach. Endpoint backup not only gets data back into the right hands, it provides the visibility required by IT and information security teams to know where corporate data's going and where it's been.

In this slideshow, Code42 highlights the top five scenarios when endpoint backup staves off major data security threats in the enterprise.
