Confront consumerization with convergence

Virtualization expert Elias Khnaser spotlights the security, compliance, and governance issues that arise when enterprise users "consumerize" with shadow IT and public cloud services. And he provides a prescription for modifying this behavior with a private cloud hosted on a robust converged infrastructure.

Enterprise Cloud Deployment Strategies

Three primary cloud deployment strategies are available today for enterprise software-public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud. However, many vendors force enterprises to choose between data security or cloud deployment flexibility; they're either unable or unwilling to give the enterprise both.
But for those needing enterprise endpoint backup, CrashPlan meets both requirements- securely and seamlessly. A powerful and highly flexible solution, CrashPlan lets organizations select their preferred cloud deployment strategy, resting assured all strategies meet or exceed rigorous industry standards for data security.

Five Must-Haves for Enterprise File Sync and Share Flexibility

Valuable enterprise data lives on endpoint devices, changes constantly and flows freely throughout organizations. But what happens when that data is inappropriately shared or breached because a business user adopts an unsafe consumer-based sync and share tool?

According to a recent report from Osterman Research Inc., "Corporate IT faces a tremendous challenge from any file sync and share app that does not satisfy enterprise requirements for data protection and IT control over corporate content. Until IT can once again regain control of their data, they risk serious regulatory, governance and security issues."

To maximize visibility into and regain control of corporate data at all times, IT can more quickly and effectively mitigate risk through an enterprise-ready sync and share solution. But what really constitutes "enterprise-grade" in today's slew of options?

To get a second glance from enterprise IT, sync and share solutions must-at a minimum-include the basic business feature sets: security, integrations, roles and permissions, audit trails, remote wipe, comprehensive APIs, real-time administration, bandwidth controls and de-duplication.

But because every organization is unique-with different needs, challenges and goals-the true requirement for enterprise sync and share lies with flexibility; technology solutions must provide enterprises with options that allow users to work how and where they want (so they'll embrace the tool), while complying with corporate security requirements.

However, an enterprise solution provider building in this type of flexibility for customers isn't easy, and that's why it's a rare find. But it does exist. Here, we present the five "must-haves" in enterprise-ready sync and share flexibility.
