Endpoints enable productive work and connect employees to the organization’s intellectual property. Endpoints are also a risk and threat vector.

Michael Sampson from Osterman Research and Ed Gavin from Micro Focus offer a candid conversation on the organizations rejecting the implementation of a strong backup approach for endpoints and instead preferring to sync only some data with OneDrive.

In this session you will learn:

  • Why OneDrive is not enough to reduce risk or organizational threats
  • What the current organizational threats are: insider threats, the risk of lost and stolen devices, and ransomware incidents (among others) that continue to threaten the integrity of endpoints
  • How the core drivers for endpoint backup are ones that benefit the organization: data retention, disaster recovery, legal hold and eDiscovery, and counteracting insider threats, among others
  • How hidden productivity loss and help desk costs are realized every time devices are compromised, lost, or stolen
