Find out more about endpoint data loss in your organization
Johannesburg, South Africa, July 8, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– In their latest report on endpoint user data backup (ID #: G00211731), Gartner highlights the issue of endpoint user data security as one of the major problems faced by IT today. Pair this with the latest Intel report showing that the average costs of a lost or stolen business laptop is $50 000, and enterprises have a pressing financial incentive to ensure that their endpoint user data is properly protected.
One of the key challenges identified by Gartner is that IT tends to look at user data protection in the traditional sense, meaning from the centre out, instead of from the edge, inward â€“ with the main areas of risk and exposure residing on endpoint user devices such as laptops and desktops.
The value of a business laptop rests on the value of the enterprise data residing on that device. With users becoming increasingly mobile, corporate data loss grows exponentially each year and the data at the edge of the network has never been more exposed. Loss is also happening at a higher rate with business data intake doubling every 18 months.
The fact of the matter is that todayâ€™s legacy (mostly server-focussed) solutions struggle to provide an answer to the problem of endpoint data protection because vendors simply attempt to adapt antiquated technology, instead of building the correct solution from the ground up.
