Welcome to the Cloud Generation, where employees demand flexibility and access wherever they are, but can expose your most sensitive data to risk.
Distributed environments—like mobile and distributed workforces—introduce new attack surfaces that must be protected and increased use of SaaS Cloud Apps are driving the need for new compliance and security controls. The result? Security and IT teams are being forced to rethink network designs to better answer questions like:
- How do we effectively govern access to data, apps and systems?
- How can we combat advanced threats targeting our business through the web, cloud and e-mail?
- How should we secure information that is moving between our network, endpoints and the cloud?

Cloud Security for Dummies, Enterprise Mobility Edition
As more mission-critical business workflows move to the cloud, yesterday’s security protocols and measures have become inadequate. And as cybersecurity threats increase, protecting business resources from compromised mobile endpoints is no longer a “nice to have” but a “must have” for the digital enterprise. More than half of all enterprise cloud app activities now occur over mobile devices with enterprise mobility at the epicenter and crossroad of business productivity and cybersecurity challenges.
Join VMware AirWatch Director of Enterprise Mobility, Christopher Campbell and Netskope authors of Cloud Security for Dummies, Steve Malmskog and Lebin Cheng, for a lively discussion and reveal of the 10 “must haves" for cloud-consuming mobile workforces. Attendees will learn how to:
Use intelligence about identity, device, and cloud usage to inform policy decisions on the device, in the app, and in the cloud;
Identify cloud app usage trends to anticipate users’ needs and create a better mobile and cloud user experience;
Proactively protect sensitive user and corporate information through policy; and
Halt threats in the cloud before they propagate to users’ devices.
