Joe McKendrick published an insightful article recently on ZDNet about a commonly known issue in IT circles that is not regularly brought out into the open. Namely, that the top executives in companies are often the worst offenders of the company’s IT data security policies. The combination of the sensitive information carried by executives with increasingly mobile computing devices is leading to data breach and loss disasters. Executives who have been at the forefront of the BYOD trend often lose their laptops during travel at a significant rate. Executives’ laptops have more sensitive information on them than the average employee’s laptop.
The best way to get compliance with your data security policies is to put in place systems that do not require any action by the end user. Datacastle RED is that solution providing:
- Automatic continuous backup and recovery
- Mobile file retrieval from any mobile device, any time, anywhere
- Remote data delete
- Encryption for data at rest
- Device trace
Datacastle has started off the year running a promotion (in conjunction with many of our partners) to cover your company’s executive suite for free for a year for mid-sized to large companies.
