Features

Enterprise Endpoint Backups and Restores

Multi-Destination

Back up data to multiple locations for the highest level of availability, convenience and protection.

Cross-Platform Protection

Protect Mac, PC, and Linux platforms via a consistent user experience.

End-to-End Security

Upon backup activation, data is automatically encrypted on the device via 448-bit encryption before it is saved to a local backup device or transported across the LAN, WAN or Internet; data remains encrypted during transit and storage. Dual-factor authentication also is supported.

Data De-Duplication

Block-level data de-duplication means only new/changed information within a file—not repeated information—is backed up.

Unlimited Backups

With PROe, unlimited really means unlimited:

  • No limits on storage
  • No limits on file size
  • No limits on versions
  • No limits on archives

Customizable Backup Sets

Send different groups of files with different backup settings to different destinations. Users may select settings different from or in addition to content admins back up per IT policy.

Flexible File Selection and Schedules

Back up any type of file (unless otherwise specified by the administrator). Adjust backup settings to meet specific needs.

Backup Frequency

Default minimum frequency is one minute, but users and admins can adjust as needed.

Mobile Access to Data

Download, view and share PROe-protected files from any iOS, Android, Windows Phone or Kindle mobile device. Synchronize your favorite files via One-Touch Update.

Admin- and User-Initiated Restore

Users leverage Web Restore for self-restores, even from a mobile device. Admins use Push Restore to push protected data to a new or existing device.

Guaranteed Restore

A backup verification process checks the health of backup archives days, weeks, months and years after the original data blocks have been backed up, so any user or admin can recover backed up files based on date, time or incremental version. Users can easily search for specific files, and cross-platform restores are supported across any available network medium.

Universal Networking

Use whichever connection is available—wireless, wired or cellular—for backups and restores. Whitelist or blacklist specific networks based on preferences.

Automated Data Seeding for Private Clouds

Simplify initial backups for private clouds, saving both time and bandwidth.

Invisible Client Footprint

Continue to work uninterrupted thanks to a lightweight client footprint and self-optimizing technology that steps out of the way when end user workloads are detected.

Enterprise Endpoint Backup Management

Unified Admin Console/HTML5 Interface

Manage backup for your entire enterprise — including policies, profiles and data retention — for all platforms, from a single console.

  • Enforce data retention policies
  • Ensure compliance
  • Specify backup timing and security settings

And thanks to HTML5, the admin console looks just as great on your tablet as it does on your laptop or desktop.

Evaluation User Accounts

Bypass procurement delays to protect data for new users. Onboard users and start backing up their data, then just convert evaluation user accounts to active licenses within 30 days to continue protecting their data.

Tiered Administration and Customizable User Roles

Fine-tune profiles and settings to fit the way you manage and perform backup operations.

Customizable Installers

Conduct automated, mass rollouts to any desktop platform using popular desktop management suites, such as JAMF Casper Suite. Silent installs also are supported.

Controlled Client Upgrades

Upgrade production servers first, then manually test a small sample of client device upgrades before upgrading all client devices enterprise-wide.

Enterprise Identity Management

Integrate seamlessly with Open Directory or AD/LDAP, Radius for two-factor access authentication, and Shibboleth/SAML 2.0 for federated, cross-domain single sign-on (multiple integrations supported, including Ping Identity, Okta, ADFS and InCommon).

Daily Integrity Tests

Daily integrity tests verify protected files can be restored, with errors automatically detected and corrected. Automated alerts notify you of issues that cannot be corrected.

Real-Time, Customizable Reporting

No waiting for reports to run; get statistics or live data on backup status as it happens—rolled up for the entire enterprise—or easily drill down to individual users and devices. Develop customized reporting solutions using PROe’s REST API and our integration with Splunk Enterprise.

Automatic, Optimized Storage Management

Optimize storage and bandwidth across all storage volumes. Clusters and innovative mesh technology let you assign any combination of servers and storage volumes into automatically managed destinations.

  • Data balancing automatically equalizes archive storage across servers and storage volumes
  • I/O balancing assigns users to store points based on available I/O performance
  • Smart assignment rules allow you to assign backup destinations for new devices

Proactive License Management

Receive proactive notifications of licenses needing a refresh via a console license screen displaying licensing by user counts and indicating required refresh dates.
