  • Traditionally, most organizations have used email for sending files to colleagues or clients. However, as files increase in size and email attachment limits are an issue, employees are forced to either use old-fashioned FTP or circumvent company regulations by turning to insecure consumer-grade applications. 72% of the people we surveyed do! Let us tell you about a better way.

    Join us to learn 4 key best practices:
    1) Don’t mess with what users know – continue to use Microsoft Outlook to drive file transfers (just don’t leave it to Outlook to deliver them)
    2) Don’t leave it to users to decide when something is too big or too sensitive to send by email
    3) Do make the experience better and faster for users (as opposed to more complicated and slower)
    4) Have a policy (and protection) that covers email-based sharing even when mobile

    With Workshare, employees can email links to files, eliminating the need for attachments, while continuing to us the familiar Outlook to do it. Policy-enforcement means companies can secure, track, and expire file access and activity beyond the corporate firewall.

    Workshare also uses its customizable policy engine to ensure that the content that is shared is secured and removed of any sensitive information before it is shared.
    Intelligently scan and secure documents too large or too important to send by email. IT can set policies to determine when a file is too large to send, or critically when to block or clean a file if it contains sensitive hidden data that would expose the company to risk.
  • Knowing what IT assets you have and how to protect them is increasingly a challenge as globalization, virtualization and mobile assets create new endpoints and new opportunities for hackers to infiltrate. Now you can move beyond traditional scanner-based approaches to strengthen endpoint security with a free solution from Qualys.

    Discover how the Qualys AssetView gives you a fast, actionable view of all IT assets while helping to:

    > Gain comprehensive, scalable and always up-to-date view of endpoints — with continuously updated inventory of asset details, scaling to millions of assets

    > Deliver fast, accurate and actionable data — with a new layer of intelligence into the current state of endpoints, including details about services, file systems and registries as well as information to manage and secure systems

    > Minimize impact on systems and networks — by keeping itself lightweight and up-to-date to eliminate the need to reboot

    > Handle virtualized environments with ease — by keeping track of the constant proliferation of images inside and outside of the environment
