Today's workforce is increasingly "mobile first" — and, sometimes, "mobile only." As IDC research shows, companies are devoting nearly a quarter of the IT budget to mobile, seeking to enhance worker productivity, increase sales and revenue, and improve competitive advantage and grow share. The right content mobilization platform is a key ingredient for the success of enterprise mobile initiatives.

The proliferation of file sync and share (FSS) products and other cloud services designed for consumers, along with mobile devices, leads to improper sharing of corporate data. Information that leaves your firewalls can live forever, and without adequate protection, can end up in the wrong hands.
So what’s the solution? Protect your information with next-generation information rights management (IRM) technology. You can email, copy, upload or share any IRM-secured document — and the protection travels with it.
Key topics include:
The threat posed by Dropbox and other consumer-grade FSS providers
The need for lifetime control of information and content
The ability to perform audits, and locate files, anywhere, and who accessed them
How next generation IRM technology is available to add a new layer of security to every file
Information technology professionals interested in using IRM for secure collaboration don’t want to miss this important report.
File sync and share can increase productivity, but how do you pick a solution that works for you? There will likely be a number of factors guiding your decision, and if you’re like most businesses, security is high on the list. Download to learn some important questions to ask file sync and share vendors about security.
Losing data is costly. According to the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach costs US organizations an estimated $200 per record, or $5.4 million total per breach. And apparently these breaches are equally likely to be from criminal attack as from employee or contractor negligence. It makes sense then that surveys point to data loss via unsecured file sync and share solutions as one of IT’s biggest concerns. IT professionals have spent years learning how to protect their organizations from hackers, but how do you ward off both external and internal threats when employees are seeking ways to collaborate more and more?
Not so long ago, the office was the only place you could work. But when smartphones and tablets came along, the only thing holding us back from getting work done anywhere, any time was having access to our data. That led to the creation of a whole new class of solutions designed to keep files current across our rapidly proliferating fleets of devices — through a technology known as ‘sync.’ All of a sudden, getting a file from your work laptop to your iPad became as simple as clicking “Save.” So it’s no surprise that 55% of information workers in North America and Europe who use a tablet at work are using file sync and share tools.
Business happens at the speed of “right now” across departmental, physical, geographical and organizational lines. Secure, anywhere, anytime access to the most up-to-minute business content ensures that employees, partners and customers can do business faster. Neither remote VPN access nor cloud-only sharing solutions provide the flexibility, security, and universal access required to support today’s business. What’s needed is a solution that offers the benefits of cloud-based file access along with the control and
manageability of local file systems.
