Preservation of critical business data is essential to most businesses, especially small and medium businesses (SMBs). Whether protecting against loss of intellectual property (IP), financial data, healthcare data, etc., recovery of data otherwise lost due to hardware/software failure or disaster can mean the difference between staying afloat or going under in the wrong circumstances. Virtualization further compounds the need to have a sound backup policy by consolidating more workloads (read: more data) into a typically ever smaller hardware footprint.
Clearpath’s clients include IT departments, C-level executives and small business owners. Many of them have deployed tablets, most often Apple’s iPad, as the result of a user population that is clamoring for the device and its form factor and innovative interface. Often my clients will ask me, “How should I go about managing the security risks that the iPad or iPhone add to our corporate security?” Since we at Clearpath host a number of our customers’ critical application infrastructures, including email, virtual desktop and proprietary applications, we have a good deal of experience helping our customers do just this. We deploy several applications in our cloud infrastructure that help to control the Apple iOS devices that our clients use. Many of our clients don’t have these capabilities, so I’ve put together a list of things that can be done which will ensure that you are protecting data as well as possible in small deployments.
