According to analysts, the world’s mobile worker population will reach 1.3 billion by 2015, representing 37.2 percent of the total workforce. Affluence and popularity are among the drivers of adoption. North America presently has the largest number of mobile workers of any region, with 182.5 million growing to 212.1 million in 20151. Furthermore, half of employers will require employees to supply their own device for work purposes by 2017, changing the economics and the culture of client computing in business to create new mobile workforce opportunities, increase employee satisfaction, and reduce or avoid costs2.
“Until recently, enterprises created common folders on a server where they asked employees to keep their work files. They then backed those folders up on a regular basis. Enterprises spent little or no efforts to back up the information on desktops, laptops or mobile devices,” said Greg Onoprijenko, President and Managing Director for e-ternity, a provider of cloud backup services that specializes in mobile workforce data protection. “With the arrival of BYOD and the fact that employees now use multiple devices to access information at every level in the organization, enterprises are now compelled to rethink the need for backing up the devices themselves.”
In order to plan effectively, Pavan Vyas, Product Manager for Asigra, points to five capabilities to consider when overhauling or updating the enterprise backup environment to include desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones. These include:
“Enterprises are looking for solutions that allow them to back up the data on all employee devices including desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones. As remote workers are outside of the corporate perimeter, and therefore may not have IT staff at close quarters, enterprises prefer easy-to-use solutions which allow employees to recover their own data quickly,” added Vyas. “Many enterprises want to lock down the functionality of backup and restore so that the control is with IT departments – so, the flexibility in the product to allow for self service as well as central control is something we hear often.”
Traditional approaches to backup are not designed to protect data across remote workforce environments. Companies with offsite employees are tasked with protecting remotely stored data without IT resources across a multitude of locations, resulting in the insecure storage of corporate data and unreliable recovery capabilities. Asigra Cloud Backup™ provides a comprehensive backup architecture for end-to-end enterprise data recovery that is LAN/WAN-Optimized and feature rich for the mobile workforce, allowing for centralized data recovery that leverages either the public and/or private cloud.
