COVID-19: How to Protect Endpoints for Remote Employees

Social media remote en

The worldwide Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is forcing employees to work from home in a distributed environment for business across the world. These are unprecedented times, and complete data protection for those desktops and laptops is more important than ever to ensure businesses move forward.

Retrospect Backup provides complete protection for every major operating system, virtual environment, application, and email service–with seamless integration to our hosted service, Retrospect Management Console.

Remote employees pose a significant challenge to legacy backup systems. Their endpoint needs data protection, but with ubiquitous cloud services like Office 365 and Dropbox, those employees don't need to log into the VPN on their laptop to get work done. Without a VPN, legacy backup systems cannot back up these desktops and laptops because the agents are behind firewalls and routers with network address translators (NATs).

With Retrospect Backup, every employee's data can be protected. Retrospect Backup provides multiple solutions, depending on the optimal configuration for your business: VPN Backup, Remote Backup and Cloud Backup.
