  • 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

  • Security Researcher, Cameron Camp, discusses seven ways in which malware threatens your virtual systems and the increasingly mission critical data and services that those systems handle. Given a thriving black market in stolen information, and the wide availability of the tools with which to acquire it, no virtual attack vector is likely to be neglected by the bad guys, from compromised executables in virtual server images to virtual networking connections between mobile end points. Drawing on the latest malware research, Camp looks at how malicious code is adapting, and may be adapted, to penetrate virtual systems.
