Hewlett Packard is set to launch a new initiative aimed at helping organisations minimise the risk to vital information stored on desktop PCs and laptops.

The new initiative focuses on the HP SureStore AutoBackup, an entirely new class of backup solutions designed to safeguard the high volume of business?critical data residing on mobile computers and networked desktop systems.

A new report by Peripheral Concepts in February this year estimates that, although 80% of laptop and desktop PCs carry company data, most companies have no backup strategies in place for their employees’ hard drives.

With the increasing use of laptops and increasing capacities of laptop hard?drives, it is indicated that there is a massive and growing volume of vital data at risk. In addition, it is further indicated that most data loss occurs due to human intervention.

To communicate HP’s simple automated backup and disaster recovery solution, Hewlett-Packard will be organising a 2-hour seminar on the 18th October, 2000. The solution will be demonstrated in an interactive and easily comprehensible manner and is being aimed at both IT managers and business decision-makers.

“Most people realize the risk associated with data loss, but don’t want to consider data protection because they think that the process is too complicated or too expensive”, commented Naji Robehmed, Information Storage Product Manager at HP Middle East. “HP is offering a truly automated solution that you can install in 15 minutes, with 24-hour instant access to backups anywhere in the world.”

To register for the conference, itp.net readers may fax to 9714 2821825 with their details, or e-mail: info@connexions.co.ae.
