Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Druva announced today that Bob Casserly, the company’s senior director of business development, will discuss the evolution of backup from its origins as a strategy to protect server data to its emerging role in protecting endpoint data at Truth in Backup, a seminar hosted by Truth in IT that will be held in Boston on April 16.
Industry analysts estimate that 28% of corporate data resides exclusively on laptops, tablets and smartphones, yet most businesses restrict endpoint backup to corporate desktops. Only 35% of enterprise laptops are believed to be backed up, and virtually no tablets or smartphones are protected despite the acknowledged security risks of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement. That is beginning to change with the increasing mobilization of the workforce, with Gartner estimating that the endpoint backup market will grow to more than $500 million by 2016.
Casserly will discuss the importance of endpoint backup in today’s BYOD environment, and the need for purpose-built solutions rather than repurposed server backup platforms to ensure fast and non-intrusive backups that work over VPNless networks without predictable scheduling.
He will also address the emergence of a unified endpoint data management strategy that consolidates backup, file sharing, data loss prevention and analytics – as well as protection of any mix of desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones - in a single platform for ease of administration and significant savings.

Druva will also be delivering the same presentation at other 2013 Truth in IT events, including May 14 in Toronto, June 25 in London, and July 25 in Chicago. A complete list of Truth in IT events is available at http://www.truthinit.com
