EndGuard Protects BYOD Data

EndGuard integrates cloud backup and native endpoint data loss prevention capabilities in a centrally managed application

LOS ANGELES (December 10, 2013) – Infrascale, a leader in secure software defined infrastructure solutions, today announced the release of EndGuard&trade for endpoint data protection and management. Designed to protect medium and large enterprises from the risks associated with data created, consumed and collaborated on at the endpoint, EndGuard integrates cloud backup and native endpoint data loss prevention capabilities in a centrally managed application to help protect corporate data, increase workforce productivity and simplify IT management.

"With the proliferation of data growth on the endpoint and with the rise of the bring your own device (BYOD) movement, IT knows they can't backup and manage mobile and laptop endpoints in the same way they've traditionally dealt with tethered and on-premise devices," said Ken Shaw, Chief Executive Officer, Infrascale. "That's why we are excited to introduce EndGuard. Purpose-built to safeguard data that is created, stored and shared on laptops, tablets and smartphones, EndGuard provides a new level of assurance and simplicity for endpoint data protection."

Infrascale's EndGuard delivers centrally managed endpoint data protection and data loss prevention to protect corporate information against risks associated with the increasingly ubiquitous BYOD trend. The platform can be managed in-house by IT staff or delivered as a managed cloud service by Infrascale.

Automated backup and best-in-class data loss prevention capabilities are combined in a single unified dashboard to simplify management for IT, improve business productivity, and reduce security risk.

EndGuard delivers:

· Automated, user-transparent backup of laptops, smartphones and tablets including support for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

· Data loss prevention with client-side data encryption, remote wipe and monitoring, heterogeneous data restore and device geo-tracking.

· Flexible and unlimited cloud support, giving enterprises the choice of where backup data is directed, with options including the Infrascale Cloud, the enterprise's own private cloud or major 3rd party public clouds.

· Central management to allow IT to control endpoint data with fine-grain control, separating content from corporate IP, delegate specific tasks and report on any number of metrics.

MSPs and IT service providers looking to expand their managed cloud backup and service portfolio with endpoint data protection will benefit from EndGuard's centralized management platform, flexible pricing and the ability to white-label EndGuard as their own endpoint data backup and data protection service.

"Data backup has been a lucrative business for us and now with BYOD on the rise, expanding our services to include endpoint data protection makes smart business sense," said Infrascale Partner Rob Naragon, President of ITque. "The ability to add EndGuard to our service portfolio will allow us to offer our customers strategic, high value data protection initiatives while streamlining management to afford our businesses incremental revenue and profit growth."

Infrascale delivers three distinct, enterprise-grade solutions built upon the Infrascale cloud storage platform, providing enterprises or MSPs and VARs end-to-end data protection: SOS Business provides complete server backup and recovery. FileLocker provides secure file-sync and collaboration for enterprises. EndGuard offers centrally managed end-point data backup and management for larger companies.

EndGuard is available for purchase today. Contact Infrascale at 1-877-896-3611 to speak to a representative and get started or request a live demonstration.
