Code42 CrashPlan Enterprise protects data

IT professionals are taking endpoint data protection seriously. And they're turning to Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards winner Code42 CrashPlan Enterprise Endpoint Backup 3.6.2.

CrashPlan protects critical corporate data saved far from the data center on PCs and laptops at the edge of a corporate network, without disrupting end users. The product gives IT governance and control while enabling easy access and unlimited file size.

Ohio State University's IT department used to make users save files to a networked home directory, which it would periodically back up via script. That system was less than perfect, "and we were very exposed," said Tim Winningham, IT projects manager for its College of Arts and Sciences. "We decided we weren't going to ignore people anymore."

Like the majority of Modern Infrastructure readers voting in the best data protection category, Winningham selected Code42 CrashPlan Enterprise Endpoint Backup. Its virtues include ease of administration, flexible backup targets and support for a broad range of devices, to name a few. Readers also like that files can be saved locally or to the cloud -- a must in professional, mobile environments.

Is sensitive corporate data at risk without endpoint protection?

Endpoint Protection - or some equivalent software - is basically a necessity if you want to protect corporate data. To be honest, I'm not happy with security unless the network we're on is unreachable from the outside - when that's not an option, though, active firewalls, anti-intrusion software, and scanning for unknown threats is the minimum that companies with sensitive data should be trying to protect. The internet is not safe - growing complacent is asking for trouble.
