Data protection : Data is very important to every organization. Many organization looses up to 8% data every year. To overcome this scenario, take a backup of data and store it. The device lost/stolen/OS crashed, we can restore the backed up data and continue the work. In this way we can protect the data.

Data Security : Many organization want to secure data. if the device is lost or stolen, an organization cannot afford to get their data into the wrong hands. In this case encryption technique is used to secure the data. In the encryption solution, data is encrypted and generate a unique key. once encrypted data is secured even if device is lost or stolen. with device encrypted even formatting the C drive will not gain any access to data. So data is secure.
