A Better Approach to Branch IT
Branch offices or locations away from headquarters are where business truly gets done. A recent Riverbed survey revealed that on average, nearly half of all employees of mid-to-large sized enterprises work in these remote locations. This is where revenue is generated, so IT must ensure that branches always have the applications and services they need to stay productive.
Studies show that approximately half of company data resides in remote locations, often far away from the secure data center. Securing and backing up this data in the branch is a major challenge for IT departments. In fact, support of branch and remote locations represents roughly 50% of the IT budget. Even so, organizations struggle to deploy new applications and services and often can’t quickly recover from branch outages.
