Teams - Overview

In Endpoint Cloud, you need to organize your devices into Teams. Typically, Endpoint Cloud users create Teams for meaningful groups, such as departments in a business or the geographical locations of different premises. But there are no limitations - you can create Teams for any grouping that you want.

When Endpoint Cloud discovers your devices for the first time, they are "unassigned". This means that they are not in a Team.

You need to create your own Teams so that you can:

  • Assign a Policy to the Team.

    A Policy is a set of rules that define:

    • What data is protected and backed up
    • How often the backups occur
    • Whether any data loss prevention features are used to protect your data should a device be lost or stolen. These include local EncryptionData Theft Prevention, and Geolocation.
    • Whether Windows user profile data can be backed up for migrating to other devices. 

  • Assign a storage area (Vault). The Vault is a storage area on a server and Endpoint Cloud uses it when backing up the Team's devices.

  • View and filter information about devices in specific Teams.

To create, edit and view Teams, you can use the Inventory page, the Protection page, or the Settings page (which has a Teams section).
