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 Encryption, Data 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).
