Datacastle Corporation, in protecting enterprises from endpoint data loss and data breaches, announced
that its product, Datacastle RED, is certified for the IBM SmartCloud and

traditional investments in enterprise IT to support endpoint backup and
security. Customers will benefit from IBM's geographic footprint and security
investments as well as the company's experience as a global service provider.

become increasingly important as the global workforce has become more mobile
and creates more business content on their various endpoint devices, including
mobile devices," says Gartner analysts Pushan Rinnen and Sheila
Childs. "If employees don't backup
their endpoint devices regularly, companies may face significant risk if
important or sensitive data is lost, stolen or leaked, including R&D

Customers will be able to install a Datacastle RED Vault on the SmartCloud
to which data from PCs, laptops and Windows 8 tablets can be encrypted, backed
up and protected. If an endpoint device is lost or stolen, data can easily be

tablet, or PC.
"Cloud-integrated backup and data
protection requires enterprise cloud infrastructure for reliability, security,
and scalability. Our partnership with IBM enables Datacastle to further help
companies leverage existing commitments and investments in IBM products and
global services, and more efficiently take endpoint data protection to the
cloud with SmartCloud," says Datacastle CEO Ron Faith.
