CommVault Launches Endpoint Data Protection to Secure, Support and Back Up Mobile Enterprises
CommVault today announced the launch of 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."
