Code42's Data Security Platform Reduces User Down Time and Costs for Windows 10 Migrations


Minimizes impact to data integrity and availability

a leading data security company, today announced enhancements for
Windows 10 Device Migrations. Designed to help organizations reduce
risks and costs related to data loss, user downtime and lost
productivity, Code42's data recovery solution gets important files back
into users' hands even more quickly by prioritizing the migration of
files created most recently. The new restore-priority capability
maximizes the efficiency not only of Windows 10 OS migrations, but also
device replacements and tech refreshes.

"At a critical time when IT teams have to put other work aside in order
to meet end-of-support timelines for OS migrations, we are making it
even easier to move file data in minutes without impacting data
integrity and availability," said Vijay Ramanathan, senior vice
president of product management at Code42. "Speed matters when you are
managing migrations for hundreds and thousands of users. When not
managed properly, migration delays translate directly to lost revenue
and productivity as well as poor user experiences."

Code42 can cut migration downtime to as little as 30 minutes per device.
It enables:

  • Automatic, continuous backup of all files so devices and data are
    always migration ready.
  • Dramatic reduction in migration timelines due to 9x faster restore
    speeds as compared to other backup solutions according to third-party
  • Users to keep working while files restore to their new devices.
  • Restore priority, which ensures users' most recently created files are
    migrated first and available for immediate use.
  • Backup intervals every 15 minutes so IT can select a specific date and
    time from which to restore.
  • Both user-driven and IT-driven migration workflows.
  • Integration with Microsoft's User State Migration Tool to restore
    device settings and personalization.

Using a single application, Code42 automatically and continuously
collects and analyzes all files and file activity across every endpoint.
In near real-time, security, IT and compliance teams can easily see
where files move and reside, making it faster to investigate and recover
from any data incident. This includes dealing with hardware failures,
file exfiltration incidents and ransomware, as well as streamlining
device refresh workflows and legal hold processes.

Built on security best practices and control requirements, Code42's data
security platform also can be configured to help comply with GDPR,
HIPPA, PCI and other regulatory frameworks. Supported by a global
state-of-the-art cloud, a single admin can manage tens of thousands of
endpoints. Today, the Code42 app runs silently on over two million
endpoints across the globe.

Unanticipated mistakes in large-scale migrations that involve endpoints,
such as computers and laptops can be costly. According to Code42's 2018
Data Exposure Report
, 71 percent of security and IT leaders reveal
that losing all corporate data held on endpoint devices would be
business-destroying or seriously disruptive. The report surveyed nearly
1,700 security, IT and business leaders in the U.S., U.K. and Germany.
