In a previous post, Rethinking Data Security in the Public Cloud, I alluded to a Private Cloud management post. So in spirit of SecureDoc Version 6.1—let’s talk Private Cloud (or #PrivateCloud to all of you Twitter geeks like me).
It’s always interesting to get into the Mac vs. Windows debate as it relates to the Enterprise. For the longest time, the corporate IT stack was predominately Windows-based, but not any more. With the introduction of the iPhone and iPad, Apple has seen its reach within the enterprise slowly grow over the past few years.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I used to run a small encryption team at a large organization before I came to work for WinMagic. One of the key responsibilities we had was to generate FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) compliance reports for NIST SP 800-53, AC-3 and SC-13 controls. What does that mean? Essentially, these are reports that ensure key security standard requirements are met within the organization for Government regulatory purposes.
Last week was a busy week for us WinMagic folks. As we’ve entered the new fiscal year for the company, so began our annual Sales & Marketing Kick-off event for our FY’13. It’s the event where the key customer and partner-facing teams get together and plot world domination of the data encryption and security market.
This post is going to be a lot of shameless self-promotion for WinMagic but it’s something we think is important as it’s tied directly to the recent launch of SecureDoc 6.1.
In today’s world, Bring Your Own Device or BYOD has quickly become a reality that organizations have come to expect. With over 76 per cent of employees using multiple devices, many of which are now owned by the individual not the organization, companies need to ensure that their corporate data is well protected. The solution for this issue is SecureDoc 6.1. Data Encryption from WinMagic.
There is a great debate raging in the security industry today on how to best provide secure corporate data in a BYOD world. The consumerization of IT and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) are becoming prevalent in organizations at lightning speed, both with and without the knowledge of corporate IT departments.
As an encryption security vendor that is working its way into Mobile Device Management (MDM), I’m fascinated and constantly looking at new ways to secure mobile devices and company information. As someone with a background in virtualized environments, I’m even more intrigued when companies like VMWare introduce solutions.
