Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
Companies are becoming increasingly aware of employee file sharing and collaboration that bypass IT governance. The need to secure this collaboration has become a critical IT requirement. As employees find loopholes within the corporate infrastructure and unauthorized cloud based information sharing tools become more and more prevalent, it’s important to identify safe-for-work file sharing alternatives. To address this issue, Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA) is hosting a webinar with Infosecurity Magazine entitled “Is it Possible to Create a Culture of Secure Collaboration?”
The risks involved with email and cloud based file sharing are high and must be tackled so that employees can safely share files containing corporate data to be productive and successful while mitigating corporate risk. A recent survey by ReRez of more than 3,000 organizations found that 40% experienced exposure of confidential information via unsanctioned cloud storage and information transfer, a phenomenon it labeled as “rogue cloud” deployments.
In this webinar attendees will discuss:
- The role of user education in preventing “rogue cloud” scenarios
- How to provide safe and secure alternatives to information/file sharing – and encourage their adoption – rather than handing down restrictive policies on the use of cloud-based collaborative tools
- How to properly balance risk versus productivity when sharing data with third parties, including co-workers, partners, and vendors
WHAT: Webinar: “Is it Possible to Create a Culture of Secure Collaboration?”
