Location flexibility is one of the perks of working remotely. But with employees using unsecured Wi-Fi networks, Saudi organizations and businesses are increasingly concerned about handling the challenge of data protection. Today’s blog sheds light on a few Veeam solutions that can help protect corporate data during stressful times and into the future.

Standalone Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows (Free Edition)

The FREE standalone Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows provides a simple solution for backing up Windows-based desktops, laptops and tablets With Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE. So, you can easily back up your computer to an external hard drive, network-attached storage (NAS) share or a Veeam Backup & Replication™ repository.

What’s really cool is that this software is designed for an average user, who might not have any administrative experience or just wants to get a job done quickly and efficiently. In order to get started, download the software from Veeam.com and launch the installation. It doesn't ask much, other than to agree with Veeam EULA and optionally create bootable media (which will be helpful should your PC show a blue screen or doesn't boot at all). The process takes just a few moments.

Make sure you point it to an external HDD/SSD, network-attached storage or even a USB drive to store a copy of data. This provides the option to throttle backups when the system is busy or to automatically start the process when the target is connected (for example, you plug in the USB backup drive). 14 daily points should be cool for the stuff you're working with. Additional ad-hoc backups should be implemented for storing a collection of pictures and/or videos for longer periods of time, thus ensuring protection of this less often accessed, yet very valuable information.

Managed Veeam Agents

IT administrators want to ensure remote workers’ data gets saved, securely transferred to company premises, and placed together in a central repository for space-saving and recovery operations.

Veeam Backup & Replication gives you multiple options to deploy and manage Veeam Agents on computers. You don’t need to install, set up and operate an Agent on every machine whose data you want to protect. Instead, you can perform the whole set of deployment, administration, data protection and disaster recovery tasks remotely from the Veeam Backup & Replication console. These jobs and policies provide a unique ability for IT administrators to control backup configuration and management, while still allowing end users access to complete file and volume-level recovery operations, and create Ad-Hoc backups while keeping the full advantage of backup resume and cache functionalities. 

Veeam Powered Network

With everyone working from home, we no longer have a united corporate network environment, do we? What if you need to organize a virtual corporate network where everyone can securely share information, exchange files and access shares at once, but don't want to dig into various manuals and difficult instructions. Veeam Powered Network comes to the rescue here.

Veeam® PN is a FREE tool designed to simplify and orchestrate VPN networking and configuration tasks, eliminating manual networking connectivity and complicated VPN installation procedures. 

This FREE solution allows administrators to create, configure and connect both site-to-site and point-to-site VPN tunnels — all easily through an intuitive, simple UI within just a couple of clicks. What's specifically great about this product is it doesn't require time-consuming education and can be literally configured within a few minutes. Moreover, the main component (HUB) is deployable via the Azure or AWS Marketplace, so most of the installation burdens are hidden if you prefer this way. With DNS forwarding and resolving FQDNs in connected sites, the tool is even more convenient for end users and network administrators.

We hope we've managed to give you a practical way to secure your remote workers' data. If you need any help or have any questions, get in touch with our expert team.
