Event Overview

To be effective, data protection has to be everywhere, from the server to the endpoint, at the office and at home, throughout the cloud and across the web. A companys system must be able to detect data leakage from any path, quickly apply real-time data protection policies, automate incident workflows, and alert the IT team as needed for further investigation. Having an effective understanding of how and where a companys data is stored is essential when trying to protect it. Data stored across multiple devices and cloud services need to be discovered and categorized according to sensitivity and accessibility.

The data that a company creates, collects, stores, and exchanges is a valuable asset. Safeguarding it from corruption and unauthorized access by internal or external people protects a company from financial loss, reputation damage, consumer confidence breakdown, and brand erosion. Furthermore, government and industry regulation around data security make it imperative that a company achieve and maintain compliance with these rules wherever you do business.
