Endpoint Data Protection From @CommVault | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Simpana for Endpoint Data Protection empowers organizations to reduce cost and risk by protecting against data loss

CommVault has launched Simpana for Endpoint Data Protection, a new solution set designed to help protect and enable the mobile workforce by efficiently backing-up laptops, desktops and mobile devices and providing secure access and self-service capabilities.

With today's mobile workforce increasing their reliance on information saved on local endpoints and outside IT's traditional domain, the need to protect sensitive data residing on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices has become more critical than ever before.  As global data breaches reach an average cost of $3.5 million in US dollars according to a study by the Ponemon Institute due to lost or unrecoverable data on employee devices, including desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, organizations are beginning to embrace centrally managed platforms that can be used to simultaneously address data protection, collaboration, regulatory, and eDiscovery requirements in a secure manner.

Available as a standalone solution set to offer simplified pricing and packaging options, Simpana for Endpoint Data Protection empowers organizations to reduce cost and risk by protecting against data loss and enabling enterprise-wide compliance and eDiscovery, while increasing productivity across the enterprise through self-service capabilities for data restore, secure file sharing and advanced data analytics and reporting.

"We are excited to bring Endpoint Data Protection to market with an expanded new feature set and pricing structure that will give customers flexible options in how they want to tackle the growing challenges and complexities around data management beyond IT's traditional reach," said Rama Kolappan, senior director and head of CommVault's Mobile Business Unit. "With data breaches continuing to make headlines and wreaking havoc on corporate reputations, our new solution set is able to give organizations the 'peace of mind' knowing their data is protected while freeing employees access to information residing within IT."

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
