Case Study: Protection and Replication for Remote Data Sources
Airgas is the largest US distributor of industrial, medical, and specialty gases to industrial and commercial markets. Airgas also provides equipment, tools, and safety supplies through over 700 locations nationwide.
Many of Airgas' mobile sales representatives and field technicians use laptops and work away from office locations. These employees sometimes lose track of their laptops, either through misplacing them or through theft. One of the main concerns of IT was to protect vital business data on laptops, to prevent that data from falling into the wrong hands. In addition, IT wanted to be able to rapidly replicate lost data onto a new laptop so that an employee could quickly continue working after a loss.
Check out this brief case study to learn the solutions Airgas found.
