This session will discuss problems with traditional audit tools and potential controls and alternatives

  • Cloud applications are fueling the data sprawl issues plaguing today’s businesses. With the rapid adoption of popular cloud applications and other cloud services, organizations must change the way data is managed, protected, and governed.

    The dispersion of data to laptops and mobile devices made up the first wave of data moving outside the data center. IT must now address a second: end user data going into the cloud. So how do organizations address their enterprise data availability and governance needs in this new world? With a new approach that follows the user and not their device.

    With Henry Baltazar, Sr. Research Analyst at Forrester Research, you will learn about:

    - The risks and data challenges posed by the adoption of popular cloud applications
    - Strategies to ensure data archiving, search and audit and eDiscovery for cloud application data
    - Opportunities to manage and control dispersed data, whether residing on laptops, mobile devices or in the cloud in a single, unified view
