Code42 and Internet2 NET+ Score High in Protecting Endpoint Data for Leading Universities

Code42, the leader in endpoint data protection and management, today announced significant momentum in the higher education vertical, driven by increasing adoption of Internet2’s NET+ CrashPlan service. Code42’s CrashPlan for Enterprise is the only endpoint backup solution selected for the Internet2 NET+ service portfolio.

Since the Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan launch in 2013, a growing number of top universities have selected the service to protect and manage campus-wide endpoint data, including Boston University, Emory University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, University of Notre Dame, Princeton University, Rice University, Stanford University and University of Alabama in Huntsville.

“Notre Dame has been an Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan customer for about a year now. CrashPlan has proven to be easy to use, and has served us well as our endpoint backup solution of choice to protect our irreplaceable data,” said Ron Kraemer, vice president for information technology and chief information and digital officer at University of Notre Dame. “Internet2’s official stamp of approval underscores our confidence in CrashPlan, and our faculty and staff rely on it to easily access and recover data from their computers and mobile devices.”

As a member-owned, advanced technology community of more than 250 United States universities, Internet2 provides a collaborative environment for members to solve common technology challenges and develop innovative solutions. Internet2 NET+ members benefit from pre-negotiated contractual terms and the assurance that preferred solutions like CrashPlan meet the rigorous technology standards set forth by Internet2.

“We’re thrilled with the number of members adopting the Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan service,” commented Shel Waggener, senior vice president for Internet2. “Our communities are extremely mobile with multiple devices per person. NET+ CrashPlan gives the peace of mind that critical university data of all types—student, research and pedagogy—is protected wherever it goes. And the solution's self-service access and restore capabilities are a welcome benefit to faculty, staff and students.”

CrashPlan enterprise endpoint backup is uniquely suited to meet the special data protection and disaster recovery needs of educational institutions, including enablement of governance initiatives such as e-discovery and legal hold. Members of the Internet2 community and other higher ed organizations choose and deploy CrashPlan for its:

  • Continuous, automatic and silent endpoint data backup
  • Mobile apps to provide secure access to all students and faculty from anywhere
  • Cross-platform support, enabling one admin to manage hundreds of thousands of endpoints
  • End-to-end encryption to safeguard sensitive data
  • Data destination flexibility to ensure speed, affordability and regulatory compliance

“With large groups of students and faculty consistently spread across the world at any given time, universities have more endpoint devices in use than nearly any other type of enterprise organization,” said Brian Bell, president and chief operating officer at Code42. “It’s no surprise that they are among the most vulnerable to data loss. Internet2 NET+ CrashPlan scales—like no other endpoint backup solution can—to protect user data anywhere, anytime.”

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
