Endpoint Device Backup

Regular data backups reduce the risk of permanent data loss that can occur for many reasons including hardware failure, power failure, and virus attacks. In continuing its commitment to the protection of mission critical data at the University, Northwestern IT is participating with University schools and departments to provide a secure hosted data backup solution for workstation machines.

Encryption Key Escrow

Northwestern provides encryption key escrow for both Mac and PC platforms. This ensures that encryption keys are stored in a central location so that a hard drive can be decrypted in the event that a local user forgets his or her password or if a department needs to restore data from a machine that they manage.

Endpoint Software and Configuration Management

After a machine is deployed, these tools help administrators keep their fleet of machines up to date. Capabilities include operating system and software patching, software delivery, and workstation configuration management and remediation.

Mobile Device Management (MDM)

MDM tools manage and track software and configurations for phones, tablets, and other devices.

Workstation Imaging

As part of workstation deployment or redeployment, imaging tools replace the operating system and software on a computer to meet standards set by an administrator. These tools help build and deliver initial software configurations to user machines.
