Also consider incorporating these technologies into your information security arsenal:

No Need to Worry About Growing Exchange Storage Cost

Posted by Anand Kekre on July 21 2015

Exchange storage cost has been a hot topic of discussion over last many years in IT community. Often times, IT administrators report the size of Exchange storage growing abnormally.

What’s In Your Enterprise File Security ‘Toolbox?’ (Part 2 Of 2)

Posted by Ankur Panchbudhe on July 14 2015

If you missed the first blog in this two-part series on enterprise file security tools consider checking it out here before reading this post, where we’ll cover digital watermarking, secure email links and end-to-end encryption.

What Is Digital Watermarking?

Digital watermarking presents enterprise documents within a browser window rather than as a downloadable file.

While digital watermarking is often seen as a function of information rights management or digital rights management (DRM), it frequently stands alone as a feature of enterprise file security platforms.

Security Mistakes to Avoid in Virtual Desktop (VDI) Implementation

Posted by Anand Kekre on July 13 2015

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, or VDI, is a technology that presents desktops or individually entitled applications from a central management server to remote users’ browser-enabled devices over the Internet, so that people have secure access to corporate data on individual’s own devices – enabling Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD). Virtualization technologies of VMware, Citrix and Microsoft are the leading solutions in this space.

VDI comes with advantages of virtualizations - flexibility, productivity, ease of use and the ability to support multiple platforms. It, to certain extent ensures security, end-user privacy, monitoring (knowing who is accessing what and from where) and auditing of virtualized resources (desktops and applications). But what happens to file security of corporate data being used by end-users on these virtualized resources. Is it protected from security risks and data loss events? Without a file security mechanism in place, people would still adopt the traditional means (like email and FTP) for sharing the most important corporate asset – files. Also, the use of consumer services like Dropbox cannot be ruled out as your end-users may be running what is called shadow-IT. Hence, though you think that the environment is protected, there are communication channels that may pose serious risks to corporate data.

What’s In Your Enterprise File Security ‘Toolbox?’ (Part 1 Of 2)

Posted by Ankur Panchbudhe on July 9 2015

Enterprise file security is all about defining and controlling who has access to what data. Fortunately, IT departments have a broad array of tools available to help them manage file access and sharing across the enterprise.

Imagine a customizable vault with different sets of keys for different users; one set of keys might only grant access to a portion of the vault, while another set unlocks everything.

Data containerization is a similar concept that allows enterprise IT to control the behavior and usage of data both inside and outside of the container. By enclosing data in containers with highly customizable access controls, IT teams can administer access rights controls over company files even when data leaves the corporate network.
