Maintaining Security in a Mobile World The game has changed. Due to cost savings, and the privacy and mobility needs of employees, in just a few short years companies have loosened the mobile device leash. Enterprises are now shifting from traditional “company owned” devices, to allowing “Bring Your Own Device” in the workplace. According to Gartner, by 2017 fifty percent of companies will actually force employee to bring their own device to work.

But if you’re tasked with securing devices, how do you accommodate BYOD? Where do you start and what kinds of security solutions should you be looking for?

In this webinar, Chris Hines, Product Manager at Bitglass will teach you how to balance the needs of IT admins and employees when it comes to securing your mobile world.

  • The BYOD trend is a symptom of consumerization in the mobile/cloud era that presents an opportunity for IT to be more relevant to the business. Recent studies show more interest than ever in BYO “anything” programs, however this transformation is hindered by concerns over security and complexity. From MacBooks and laptops to smartphones and tablets, a BYO “Anything” strategy must start with the user, not the device. By attending this webinar and discussion, you will learn:
    - How to take a people-centric approach to BYOD programs
    - Simple tips for navigating through the policy nightmares associated with BYOD
    - Key infrastructure requirement for a successful BYOD program
    - How a successful BYOD program can lead to even greater value for business mobility
  • As a business, concerns over RTO, RPO, costs, security, and data privacy have historically made the decision for cloud backup a complicated one. However, cloud technologies continue to evolve, and can now provide substantial cost benefits while overcoming the most stringent security, data privacy, storage and performance hurdles. This makes it a perfect fit for many backup needs — especially remote office server backup.

    In this session we’ll cover:

    * The state of the cloud and the latest advancements for D2C server backup
    * How security and data storage advancements are addressing key enterprise data privacy concerns
    * How to leverage the cloud for remote office server backup and archiving, while significantly lowering storage and administration expenses
  • Achieving cost-effective disaster recovery (DR) services without a physical DR site — or having to extend your DR footprint — is possible. In this live webcast with Microsoft, see how you can use AppAssure software in combination with Microsoft® Azure® and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) from Dell partner, eFolder.

    The first half of the webcast will showcase how you can store AppAssure backup archives directly on Azure and perform item-level recovery from the archive without having to download the archive from the cloud. Then we’ll showcase ways to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder® Storage Cloud® and enable multiple disaster recovery options.

    Join our webcast partnered with Microsoft® and see how easy it is to:
    • Manage the growth of your backup archives
    • Establish cost-effective disaster recovery without a DR site
    • Avoid extending your DR footprint

    What you will learn:
    • How to leverage Azure to directly store AppAssure backup archives
    • How to perform item-level recovery from the archive without downloading the archive from the cloud
    • How to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder Storage Cloud
    • How to enable multiple disaster recovery options, including image download, overnight drive shipment or recovery in the eFolder® Continuity Cloud®
  • The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

    Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:

    Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
    How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators
    How you can apply these ideas to your business to boost your bottom line

  • Desktop computers have been in existence for over 30 years, but the innovation in the last 10 years has fundamentally transformed the way we use them. The desktop is now increasingly found in the cloud, thanks to the technological advancements leading to the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). While VDI has been in existence for the past 8 years or so, it has become more relevant in the banking and insurance industries in recent years. Insurance agents and Wealth Managers work in a heavily regulated industry. While adhering to heavy regulations, the Insurance Agents and Wealth Managers have a critical need to access important information in real time to better serve their clients.

    Now with VDI they’re able to break free from the limitations of the traditional infrastructure, being able to access real time information any time anywhere, enabling them to focus on their clients’ needs. Join us in this session to learn from Craig Beattie from Celent and Muthu Somasundaram from VMware, how VDI has helped accelerate the pace of innovation in the Insurance and Wealth management industry, while maintaining compliance with all regulations.
  • Configuring a VDI image is a complex task for the systems engineer. This session will help prepare the engineer for creating an image as well as vetting and troubleshooting it before it gets to production. Topics include:

    - Image Creation Best Practices (Scripts, What-to-dos, What not-to-dos)
    - Image Testing (Tools free and not)
    - Troubleshooting (How to find out what’s wrong when it goes wrong)
    - VDI Deployments (Why?)
    - User Experience Monitoring (You need it, but how?)
  • Your organization's Salesforce data is one of its most important resources. Are you doing what you can to keep it safe?
