Three primary storage challenges that keep IT up at night:
1. How to keep up with application performance demand
2. How to affordably manage and store the vast amount of data that IT has to store
3. How to protect that data so that applications can quickly return to service if a server, storage system or entire data center fails
To meet these challenges IT has either used multiple solutions from multiple vendors, creating cost overruns and massive complexity or they have to try to consolidate to a single vendor via hyperconvergence or cloud migration leading to inefficient use of resources and feature shortfalls.

When it comes to cyber-risk, the most exposed part of any organization is also the least protected; endpoints. Much of the data on laptops and other devices is unique and not stored on storage owned by the organization, but endpoints are often the first casualties of a cyber-attack. Given the new threat organizations need to provide complete protection, which not only includes protection from device failure but also ransomware attacks, device theft and litigation response.
The challenge for IT is providing this protection without disrupting the user. If the protection solution gets in the way of the user, they will disable it, putting not only their data at risk but leaving the organization open to data loss and cyber-breach.
In this live webinar, learn the four requirements of complete endpoint data protection:
1. Truly Transparent Protection (silent deployment, bandwidth optimization, quick cache)
2. Deployment Flexibility - On-premises, Public Cloud or Private Cloud
3. Total Encryption - Protect data in-flight and at rest
4. Beyond Backup Features - Remote wipe, Legal hold
