6 Reasons That Back Up Your Decision to Switch From HP Connected

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) has announced plans for a spin-off and merger of its non-core software assets with Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO) making now the perfect time to switch to modern endpoint backup.

HP Connected was one of the first endpoint backup solutions, created at a time when most enterprises depended on file-servers to back up homogenous PC environments and imposed backup policies on employees who were increasingly non-compliant. Its solution extended data security to laptops, where most corporate data was created, as companies rapidly adopted the lightweight, mobile machines for information workers.

Switch from HP Connected to Code42 CrashPlan

Today, when more than 90 percent of companies support heterogeneous environments that include Mac and Linux devices in addition to PCs, a modern solution is better for IT, better for users and better for business. Unlike the early endpoint backup solutions, Code42 does not slow device or human performance, it runs quietly in the background and features network throttling controls—to assure all the data on laptops and desktops regardless of OS—were backed up without human intervention.

Switching is simple: Code42 coexists silently beside HP Connected until data is migrated. And when it’s complete, reliable up-to-the minute backups make recovery so easy end users can do it themselves.

With Code42, IT can:

  • Manage endpoint backup for thousands of global users via a single console.
  • Use a single solution to protect Mac, Windows and Linux devices and access data from iOS and Android devices.
  • Deploy rapidly in the cloud with encryption keys separate from data for increased security.
  • Simplify licensing per-user—not per device—with unlimited retention, if you choose.
  • Increase user adoption and cut the multitude of helpdesk tickets with DIY file restore.
  • Implement continuous rather than once daily backups to protect every version of every file up to the last few minutes of work to support rapid and robust recovery from data loss no matter what data incident, including ransomware, malware, or device loss or damage.
