Top Five Epic Fails of Enterprise Endpoint Backup

  • Top Five Epic Fails of Enterprise Endpoint Backup-

    Restricting/prohibiting data save on endpoints

    Some organizations take a completely different approach and opt not to install an endpoint solution at all. Instead, they create policies prohibiting or restricting users from saving data to their laptop or desktop.

    Unfortunately, this approach hinges on users changing the fundamental manner in which they work – which effectively guarantees it will not succeed. By employing a safe endpoint backup solution, all endpoint data can be protected without IT admins creating restrictive policies.

Traditionally, "backup" referred to protecting and storing information on a server in an onsite data center. It was a predictable task, and business data lived in a controlled environment that underwent regularly scheduled updates by IT.

Fast forward to today: Enterprises have experienced a major shift in where data lives. Driven by bring your own device (BYOD), the consumerization of IT and a highly mobile workforce, critical enterprise data has moved from the data center to end-user endpoints (and seemingly beyond the reach of IT). The reality is that IT administrators are facing an unpredictable, de-centralized environment in which they have far less control and visibility into what's happening with enterprise data.

Some have made the shift to the edge successfully, while others have not. In this slideshow, endpoint data protection and management provider Code42 outlines five of the most common mistakes and outdated methods associated with protecting endpoint data.
