Don't let endpoint disasters ruin a day-or a business deal

On the day of a big merger, what’s the worst that could happen? Turns out, there are several things that could go wrong—from dropped and stolen laptops, to ransomware threats and theft. See how Carbonite Endpoint empowers IT pros on the front lines. 

Ransomware strikes the C-suite

You can never predict when you'll be attacked by ransomware. But when it strikes, you can guarantee it'll be at the worst possible time. Watch this video

The byte swipe 

There's no such thing as a safe space for data. Thieves are always on the hunt. But losing a device doesn't always mean losing the data on it. Watch this video.

Crash test data

Hardware failures don't have to spell disaster when data is easily restored with anytime, anywhere access. Watch this video.

IT pros know that endpoints like laptops and tablets are vulnerable, and it’s not uncommon for IT administrators to pick up the phone and hear panicked end users “I left my laptop on a plane.” (If you haven’t done it, you probably know someone who has.) “My laptop fell off the counter and cracked.” (This one often involves pets or children.) or “I think I’ve been hit by malware.” (Easily confirmed by the encrypted data, and the issued deadline to deliver cash.) 

Bring Your Own…Disaster?

Bring Your Own…Disaster? The bring-your-own-device trend—mobile devices owned by employees traveling throughout the world with a combination of critical corporate and personal data stored on them—presents a unique challenge for IT pros. For starters, employees are sometimes slow to back up their own systems appropriately and many assume that antivirus or sync-and-share programs will protect their devices. But neither of those solutions provide automatic, continuous backup. Ransomware and other malware attacks are often successful at getting around antivirus protection, and online storage isn’t the same as online backup—which is really about disaster recovery.

IT pros need the ability to deploy endpoint protection across all devices form a single seat—silently and without interruption.
