Want to secure BYOD without MDM hassles?

As BYOD demand soars, the need to secure data across all mobile devices, managed and unmanaged, is increasingly important. MDM and MAM have proven unsuccessful, in large part due to deployment headaches, privacy concerns and poor user experience. In fact, 57% of employees refuse MAM or MDM on their personal devices. 

In this webinar, we will discuss the pitfalls of MDM and explore alternatives for securing corporate data on mobiles.

Webinar Next Week! BYOD Security without MDM Hassles

Many organizations have adopted MDM solutions to deal with the increasing demand for BYOD. Unfortunately, adoption by employees has been far lower than anticipated due to privacy concerns, poor user experience, and deployment complexity. Armed with knowledge of the shortcomings of early attempts to secure BYOD, enterprises are actively hunting for alternatives - a huge opportunity for companies that take the lead with the next generation of agentless, data-centric solutions.

Join our webinar December 1, 2015 at 9am PST/12PM EST/5PM GMT. You'll learn more about why MDM is not working for BYOD, why MAM never lived up to its promises, and how to build a differentiated offering that enables successful, secure BYOD programs in your customer base - without MDM hassles.

Cloud First, Security Now

In our latest report on Changing IT Priorities for 2016, we found that 55% of CIOs surveyed characterized their public cloud strategy as "Cloud First." This is a significant departure from the mentality of years past, where organizations defaulted to the warm, cozy feeling of premises-based applications. Cloud adoption has accelerated in recent years in large part due to the associated cost savings and ease of deployment. Despite this incredible progress, security remains a top priority for many IT leaders.

As organizations move their corporate data to public cloud applications, the need for added security and control beyond the built-in capabilities of Google Apps, Office 365, and others, becomes apparent. While cloud app vendors have a vested interest in keeping their platforms secure, their security focus and investments are typically limited to large scale security issues that would impact all users of the platform (think DDOS attacks or SQL injection vulnerabilities).

 With Bitglass, an organization can fill critical cloud app security gaps immediately. Alerted to multiple logins from distant geos, massive downloads to unmanaged BYOD devices, unwanted external file sharing are all suspicious activities that may indicate a breach. Just some small examples of visibility enabled by CASBs.

Critical Capabilities For Office 365 Security

Office 365 adoption is accelerating in the enterprise and offers a promising compromise for enterprises deciding, “to cloud or not to cloud". However, you can't simply shift responsibility for your company’s data security to Microsoft. You can achieve Office 365 data security... but only through a comprehensive in-house security plan, together with Office 365’s built-in security functionality.

In this webinar, we will help you understand where Microsoft’s security responsibility ends, and where yours begins, highlighting key gaps  as you make the move to Office 365, and how to solve them.
