Informational Update For August 28, 2012
Prepare Like Your Business Depends On It
Businesses around the country have learned the hard way that they can't afford to be unprepared for the worst. In just seconds the data they relied on to do business was gone - wiped out because no one stored it safely offsite.
Consider these facts:
A business interruption event can cost as much as $3 million an hour (Source: Aberdeen Group)
50% of businesses that lose their data to disaster are out of business in two years (Source: Faulkner Information Services)
93% close for good in five years (Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor)
Don’t let this happen to you. The best way to protect your business is with offsite storage for your backup tapes - somewhere out of harm’s way.

As the line between work and personal life continues to blur more and more, employees are bringing their own smartphones, tablets and laptop computers to the workplace-whether that workplace is an office, an airport, a hotel, home or anyplace else.

Benefits of silent and continuous data protection
Best practices for locking down your endpoint machines
How to set up automated backup to the cloud
The issues around self-serve search and retrieval for users from their mobile devices, including Apple iOS and Android-based smartphones and tablets
IT administrator visibility and control over file access, downloads, and sharing
