South Africa’s largest ports authority has taken technology from Cambridge UK software specialist Autonomy.The Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) has chosen Autonomy's intelligent mobile backup solution, Connected Backup, to protect vital information across the group. TNPA is one of five operating divisions of Transnet SOC Ltd, a state-owned enterprise in South Africa, responsible for the safe, effective and efficient economic functioning of the national port system.
It provides port infrastructure and marine services at all eight commercial seaports in South Africa and is the biggest port authority on the African continent in terms of the cargo volumes it handles.
TNPA chose Autonomy's Connected Backup solution to enable intelligent, automated and secure backup for more than 1,800 laptops and desktops across all eight of its port sites.
Autonomy’ solution automatically and securely saves vital data in the background while users work. It backs up incremental changes in data and new documents, reducing the time, size and complexity of backups.
