Data protection specialist, NovaStor publishes whitepaper on challenges and best practices in corporate data protection for mobile, home workplaces and satellite offices.

Agoura Hills / (CA) USA, March 30, 2011 – In a new whitepaper, NovaStor (, a pioneer in data protection, addresses the challenges companies face when protecting data outside the enterprise network. Using three exemplary IT scenarios, the paper presents best practices for protecting mobile laptops, home workplaces, or branch offices with a simple solution that requires little administrative effort.

Cost, Security, and Effort Define Private Cloud Success
Protecting and restoring data at remote locations may, in the worst case, require an IT Specialist to travel onsite and recover as much, or as little data as can be restored. Individual, local solutions that cannot be administered from the main office hardly solve the problem of data loss and result in immense recovery costs. Solving the challenge requires the installation of a consistent data protection solution that combines local and online data protection with central administration and remote management. Providing distributed workplaces with a consistent solution involves little cost, reduces work load, and assures a high level of data availability.

Keeping It Simple
Professional solutions allow companies to install a ready-made client / server architecture and to provide data protection services to distributed employees in a private or enterprise cloud. NovaStor’s whitepaper depicts the strategies that assure the enterprise service can easily be used by all employees and requires little administration and management effort from IT administration. The handbook also covers functions such as automation, data encryption, central management, or file size reduction that a professional solution should provide in order to ensure a smooth service.
