When moving to Office 365 cloud services, organizations must ensure their infrastructures are cloud-ready, prepare strategies for moving information and applications to and from the cloud, and yet still deliver the best possible end-user experience.
Non-profit MTC Australia, for example, envisioned a “cloud first” approach for Office 365, among other business critical applications. This would significantly increase the amount of traffic on their already overburdened network. With Riverbed, they were able to make the big move to the cloud, yet still deliver a user experience that was “not good, but fantastic.” Learn how customers like MTC Australia and others have successfully:
• Achieved application delivery of Office 365 more than 100 times faster

As much as Silicon Valley startup execs love to portray Microsoft as a dinosaur, the fact is that Office 365 adoption is accelerating in the enterprise. Office 365 offers a promising compromise for enterprises deciding, “to cloud or not to cloud": Bring cloud-based productivity tools under the company’s security umbrella so that people can work the way they want to, without sending sensitive company data astray. The idea that you can simply shift responsibility for your company’s data security to Microsoft, however, couldn’t be further from the truth. You can achieve Office 365 data security... but only through a partnership that involves, at its core, a comprehensive in-house security plan, together with Office 365’s built-in security functionality.
In this webinar, Rich Campagna, VP Products at Bitglass, and Salim Hafid, Marketing Manager, will help you understand where Microsoft’s security responsibility ends, and where yours begins, highlighting key gaps to keep in mind as you make the move to Office 365, and how to solve them. CPE Credit available for attendance.

EMC Documentum eRoom has been in maintenance mode for years and its product lifecycle will likely end in the near future. Customers are being pressured to make a decision about the future of their eRoom installation and a successor for it. Many of the eRoom customers have already been migrated over to Microsoft SharePoint or Office365, or have even started to clean up their eRoom systems in preparation for such a migration.
In this 60-minute webinar, learn how YADA’s unique worldwide eRoom assessment, cleanup, and migration toolset plus methods, including AvePoint’s DocAve Migrator, enable a smooth system cleanup and migration of content – saving time and money while insuring a positive user experience.
One of today's biggest cloud trends is enterprise adoption of the Microsoft Office 365 suite. There is one wrinkle, though. Your business wants to move quickly to get immediate value, while your security team needs to proceed a little more cautiously to ensure they can govern usage and protect sensitive data. Can organizations move quickly and instrument the proper controls?
Join Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst from 451 Research, Shamiana Soderberg, Senior Business Development Manager Cloud Productivity from Microsoft, and Jamie Barnett, CMO of Netskope for a look at safe enablement best practices for Office 365, and the role Cloud Access Security Brokers play in this effort.
Attendees will come away with the ten real-world requirements that every organization should consider when adopting a sanctioned cloud productivity suite like Office 365. These requirements will address areas like:
- Granular administrative and user controls across the Office 365 suite
- DLP for content “at rest” within and “en route” to or from the suite
- Usage and data governance within the suite and its ecosystem
Many organizations have already moved or are considering Office 365 to replace their on-premises Exchange infrastructure. Careful consideration of the risks and individual business requirements will ensure an easier migration.
Join Computing and Mimecast Cyber Security Strategist, Orlando Scott-Cowley, for a discussion around the areas that CIOs, technical and security staff need to take into consideration, both in companies that already have Office 365 and those who are planning to migrate.
Watching this on-demand Computing webinar you will learn:
• Pros and cons of Office 365 vs on-site Exchange
• What are the biggest challenges when implementing Office 365 within your organisation and how to tackle them
• Solutions to the ‘functionality gap’ and areas where additional input may be needed
Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity suite. Office 365 is central to Microsoft’s strategy as the company evolves into a mobile-first, cloud-first software and solutions provider. Office 365 is also central to the productivity strategy of many MobileIron customers since their employees will increasingly use Office on mobile devices instead of traditional PCs. Therefore the ability to secure and deploy Office 365 on mobile devices using MobileIron is a common requirement. This webinar will outline the MobileIron security framework for mobile apps and how it can be used to secure and deploy Office 365 on mobile devices.Read more >
Get Ahead of the Risks to Protect & Govern User Data Wherever it Lies
Cloud applications are fueling the data sprawl issues plaguing today’s businesses. With the rapid adoption of Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps and other cloud services, organizations must change the way data is managed, protected, and governed.

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.
In this webinar with analyst firm ESG, you will learn about:
– The risks and data challenges posed by the adoption of Office 365, Google Apps, SalesForce.com, Box and more
– 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
