CommVault Improves Data Protection With Solution for Desktop/Laptop Backup, Recovery & Compliance Archiving08:30 EDT Tuesday, April 12, 2011- Enhancement Improves Protection of Desktop and Laptop Data with WAN-Efficient Deduplication, Intelligent Scheduling & Intuitive End-User Interface -OCEANPORT, N.J., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT)(Logo: https://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110329/MM73841LOGO)News FactsThe latest enhancement to CommVault® Simpana® software ensures that data residing on corporate desktops and laptops is easily protected, archived and indexed improving the availability of all data while meeting ever-increasing compliance requirements.Recent research from Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. reveals that endpoint devices, including desktop and laptop PCs, are often under-protected. According to the December 2010 research report, "Endpoint Device Backup Trends," less than half (49%) of organizations that currently have data protection processes for endpoint devices actually back up all of their desktop PCs and only 38 percent do so for laptops. At the other end of the spectrum, 11 percent of respondents said that less than 25 percent of desktops are protected or they have no data protection process at all and 12 percent of their laptops fall into the same category.With Simpana 9's enhanced desktop/laptop solution, CommVault has extended its unified, policy-driven data management approach to help customers lower the cost, risk, administrative overhead and network bandwidth needed to protect and archive remote and mobile data.CommVault's latest solution takes advantage of third-generation deduplication capabilities, which eliminate redundant backup and archive data before sending it across any network. Utilizing source-side deduplication can result in the transfer of up to 90 percent less data across the network, which alleviates problems associated with bandwidth constrictions and reduces backup windows.CommVault's modern data management platform delivers the intelligence, automation and scalability to protect, store and recover data, regardless of where it resides. With Simpana software, customers have access to the most comprehensive set of data and information management solutions, which can be added into their environment seamlessly to meet dynamic business demands.Tweet This: @CommVault improves data protection with solution for desktop/laptop #backup, recovery & compliance #archiving http://bit.ly/iuT0u Comprehensive Data Management from Endpoint to ArchiveCommVault's endpoint data protection solution can be deployed quickly and easily in large-scale environments with tens of thousands of platforms using built-in, automated client discovery and installation features. Additionally, CommVault's desktop/laptop solution includes an intuitive web console, which enables remote employees to self-mange backup functions according to corporate guidelines. Moreover, they can restore data whenever and wherever necessary.Automated, intelligent scheduling is integrated with global data protection policies to simplify and speed backup operations without impacting user activities or productivity.CommVault's expanded desktop/laptop data protection solution is also fully integrated with other Simpana software solutions, such as Archive and Enterprise Search, to improve overall eDiscovery and compliance information workflow.CommVault users can take advantage of a single console to search, sort, select and retrieve corporate information, including remote and mobile data. The company's enterprise search capability ensures that all data sources are accounted for, which reduces the risk of important emails or files being lost or accidentally deleted from desktops or laptops.Supporting QuotesFrom Jeff Echols, senior director of product marketing, cloud strategy & alliances for CommVault:"CommVault has extended its comprehensive data protection for servers and applications to encompass greater support for desktops and laptops, all of which can be protected easily as part of our holistic approach. In doing so, we've unified the management of data from endpoint to archive and eDiscovery while taking advantage of our single platform, intelligent software and source-side deduplication to yield compelling cost and operational benefits."From Sheila Childs, director of storage strategies and technologies for Gartner:"It's becoming increasingly clear that important data residing on endpoint devices may not be adequately protected, which leaves organizations vulnerable to risk and exposure. For that reason, backup modernization projects should include a strategy for aligning both server and endpoint data protection with an overarching corporate backup and recovery policy."
