Overview:

The Symantec Desktop and Laptop Option is an easy to use solution which provides reliable automated file backup and recovery for desktops and laptops from the market leader in Data Protection. Whether desktops and laptops are connected to the network or offline, the Desktop and Laptop Option provides continuous data protection regardless of their connectivity.

With the majority of business-critical information residing outside of the data center or off corporate servers, protection for desktops and laptops is a must. The Symantec™ Desktop and Laptop Option is an easy-to-use solution which provides reliable automated file backup and recovery for desktops and laptops from the market leader in data protection. Whether desktops and laptops are connected to the network or offline, the Desktop and Laptop Option provides continuous data protection regardless of their connectivity.

Files can be backed up continuously, on a schedule, or manually providing the safety and security of knowing that data stored on desktops and laptops is protected and recoverable in minutes in the event of data loss or system failure. Not only improving data protection and efficiency, this option enables users to restore their own files and maintains synchronization between multiple desktops and laptops so the most up-to-date file versions are available on all of a user's computers. Because the Desktop and Laptop Option does not require a dedicated stand-alone server as competing products do, it easily integrates into an organization's existing IT infrastructure and policies, helping lower the total cost of ownership.

The Desktop and Laptop Option is a network share based protection and synchronization solution that enhances current IT desktop and laptop protection policies using an organization's existing IT infrastructure.

The Desktop and Laptop Option is a network share based protection and synchronization solution that enhances current IT desktop and laptop protection policies using an organization's existing IT infrastructure.

Safeguard desktop and laptop data

The Desktop and Laptop Option provides automated continuous data protection for users whether they are in the office or on the road. Protection is provided whether the computer is online or offline. When the computer is not connected to the network, files created by the user are backed up to a local file. Once network connectivity is restored, the files are then backed up from the local file to the designated network share. As a result, users can work and travel knowing their data is safe. In the event of data loss or system failure, files and folders can be easily restored in minutes. The Desktop and Laptop Option also provides secure data transfer with AES 256-bit encryption.

Reduce storage

Intelligent source-side deduplication helps manage data growth and effectively reduce rising storage costs by storing only a single copy of deduplicate data. Deduplication has the power to transform information management. It keeps storage at predictable levels while greatly reducing storage requirements.

Reduces total cost of ownership

By automating the process of copying user data onto a network share, the Desktop and Laptop Option easily fits into existing infrastructures. This reduces total cost of ownership by maximizing utilization of current resources. In addition, the unique design of the Desktop and Laptop Option eliminates the need for a dedicated server and allows a company to adopt a solution without having to invest in additional hardware, personnel, and storage.

Synchronization

With synchronization, users can access their data from multiple computers at multiple locations. For example, executives working on a PowerPoint at a desktop in the office can access the latest version of that file from their laptop, whether they are at home, on the road, or visiting a client. Users can access their latest files wherever and whenever they need them.

Comprehensive solution

The Desktop and Laptop Option integrates with NetBackup and Backup Exec to extend data protection beyond the main office out to individual desktops and laptops. With the Desktop and Laptop Option and NetBackup or Backup Exec, users can rely on one source for a comprehensive data protection solution. In addition, the Desktop and Laptop Option is also integrated with Microsoft Active Directory® resulting in the ability to logically group users by department or function and customize parameters specific to each group's needs.
