Use the Data Protection tool

The integrated Data Protection tool lets you collect, store, track, and view detailed information about the data integrity status of the managed devices in your network.

Data Protection tool window

Access the Data Protection tool in the LANDESK console via the Tools menu (Tools > Security and Compliance > Data Protection) or the Toolbox.

The Data Protection tool window lists the Data Protection servers you've added to your network.

NOTE: Setting up and configuring a Data Protection (Credant Enterprise) server is a separate task. You must follow vendor specifications and instructions in order to set up the server. Then you can add the server to your LANDESK network.

Data Protection toolbar

The Data Protection tool window has the following toolbar buttons:

  • New data protection server: Lets you add the configuration information for an existing Data Protection server to your LANDESK network so that it can communicate with the LANDESK core server and database, and send information about the data on managed devices that have the Data Protection agent installed.
  • Properties: Shows the properties page for the selected server so it can be edited.
  • Delete: Removes the selected data protection server from your LANDESK system.
  • Refresh: Reloads all the configuration information for the Data Protection servers into the console with your latest changes or changes made from another LANDESK console.
  • Web console (if available): Opens the Credant Web server application in a browser (if the specified server has that software installed as part of its configuration). The Credant Web console displays only Credant-specific information, not any LANDESK integrated content. (NOTE: Microsoft Silverlight must be installed in order to view the Web server.)
  • Schedule sync task: Creates a scheduled task that syncs the data from all of the Data Protection servers that you've configured in the LANDESK console. You do not have to schedule separate tasks for each server. This task is added to the Scheduled Tasks tool window with a time and date stamp as part of the name to uniquely identify it.

IMPORTANT: Scheduled sync task frequency
The default is to schedule the job to run just once. You'll likely want to change it to make it a recurring job and set the frequency to an interval that is suitable for your environment. A daily sync is likely to be suitable for most users.

  • Help: Opens the LANDESK Help Center to the Data Protection help topics.
