Microsoft data Protection Manager review
Microsoft’s System Center Data Protection Manager is but just one component amongst several others that comprise Microsoft's System Center line of products. As a whole, System Center provides a variety of tools for managing an enterprise full of servers, PCs and devices. Its Configuration Manager product (SCCM) allows administrators to discover, inventory, and update software for devices attached to the network almost anywhere they reside in the enterprise. Once everything is found and cataloged, System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) allows admins to monitor systems for problems, and send alerts or even make corrections automatically. But, no matter how well known or monitored an enterprise full of systems is, sooner or later, something will go wrong. When that occurs, the only solution is the ability to restore reliable backups.
How Data Protection Manager Works
Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 SP1 (SCDPM) is a complete enterprise backup system. Like all data protection systems, it copies data from its original home to a backup location. Whenever the original data suffers an issue, the backed up data can be restored to the original location from its secondary home. DPM offers the ability to create full backups, incremental backups, differential backups, and even bare-metal backups which can completely restore a system without having to first install an operating system or backup software.
The Data Protection Manager system is built primarily around disk-to-disk backup. Disk-to-disk backup is substantially faster than backup to magnetic media, most commonly tape. Restores are quicker and easier as well. With disk-to-disk backup, administrators have no need to find and mount tapes to handle restores, nor to change tapes after each round of backups. Furthermore, thanks to the speed and simplicity of disk-to-disk backups, data can be backed up more frequently. DPM supports data synchronization as fast as every 15 minutes.

How to Remotely Wipe a Mac
In an extreme situation, say a Mac is lost or stolen, you can remotely wipe the Mac of all its data and contents with the help of iCloud. Remotely wiping a Mac goes a step further though and not only removes all data from the computer, but locks it down so that its unusable without a set passcode, plus displays a message you provide. This is excellent anti-theft protection, and even if you never end up using it, its good to know how to do.
With iCloud and iOS 5 or later you can locate, display a message on, remotely lock, or wipe (erase) your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac
