Data Protection Tip #4 - Protect Corporate Laptops

Although most companies have implemented solutions for protecting the enterprise data, more than 60 percent of all corporate data resides in workstations and laptops and is notoriously under-protected.

Use tools such as hidden partitions on laptops to save images of the systems. That way, should a user be traveling when an emergency occurs, they will be able to restore the data and programs on the laptops themselves.

A computer virus that wipes out the entire laptop or accidentally deletes files could end up being no problem at all. A simple reboot could bring the entire laptop back to a known, good working condition.
