Whitepaper: Mobilize SharePoint Securely: Top 5 Enterprise Requirements

by AccellionNov 12, 2012

To stay productive, mobile workers want access to the same data they have in the office-including data stored in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems such as Microsoft® SharePoint.

When users discover that SharePoint data can't be accessed easily on tablets and smartphones, they often work around corporate IT departments (and corporate IT security policies), and post files to a variety of cloud file sharing services. But these file-sharing services represent a significant security risk to enterprises. They can't be centrally controlled or monitored, and they've suffered too many security breaches. Enterprise IT departments need to step in, take charge, and provide secure mobile access to SharePoint.

Read this whitepaper to learn the top five enterprise requirements for deploying a SharePoint-enabled secure mobility solution.

Whitepaper: Secure File Sharing and Collaboration in the Cloud: Maximizing the Benefits While Minimizing the Risks

by AccellionSep 27, 2012

The rampant use of free, cloud-based dropbox-type of applications has created new security vulnerabilities for enterprise organizations. Employees using mobile devices are increasingly taking advantage of these services to share confidential or protected information and collaborate with people outside the organization-without providing adequate security, tracking, or visibility for the IT department.

Employee use of unmanaged cloud-based services puts your organization at risk for a data breach or non-compliance with industry and government regulations.

•   Security implications and requirements for ensuring protection of confidential information.

•   Considerations for deploying secure file sharing and collaboration in the cloud.

•   How to determine the best cloud architecture for your organization's need.

Whitepaper: Putting IT Back in Control of BYOD

by AccellionSep 27, 2012

Osterman Research conducted a survey of 760 individuals with regard to the BYOD issues they face in their organizations. Personally owned Apple iPhone and iPads, as well as Android smartphones and tablets, are more common than their company-supplied counterparts.

The research also found widespread use of third party, cloud-based storage and file synchronization offerings that are sometimes used with IT's blessing, but more often not. Dropbox, for example, is used in 14% of 1,000+ employee organizations with IT's blessing-and in 44% of them without approval.

Organizations should implement policies and technologies that will channel the BYOD trend into appropriate management of corporate data and assets instead of banning the use of personal devices and applications outright.

•   The growing trend toward BYOD

•   The benefits of BYOD

•   The dangers of BYOD

•   The steps to managing BYOD

Whitepaper: Best Practices for Secure Enterprise Content Mobility

by AccellionSep 27, 2012

The proliferation of mobile devices and the popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are creating new security challenges for enterprises. Employees are using devices such as iPads and smartphones to access and store business data. And they're relying on email and consumer-grade file-sharing services to share and access this data. As a result, enterprise data has never been easier to access and more difficult to secure.

To secure mobile devices while enabling employees to share data securely, organizations need a comprehensive and flexible solution for secure enterprise content mobility. A secure enterprise content mobility solution complements Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions and enables mobile workers to easily share data with other authorized users, while ensuring that data is always secure and IT operations are always compliant.

Read this whitepaper to learn best practices for secure mobile content management and how you can enable your road warriors to be as productive as possible on any device anywhere, anytime.

Whitepaper: Evaluating Cloud File Sharing and Collaboration Solutions

by AccellionSep 27, 2012

Consumerization has had a broad impact on IT-users are bringing in their own devices and subscribing to their own applications without waiting for the IT department' permission. Users want and need to be able to access documents from multiple devices and are subscribing to consumer applications like Dropbox to share files between devices and collaborators.

This creates a tremendous challenge for IT, which is in charge of managing and protecting corporate information assets, since it has no visibility into, or control over, what is stored and shared in these consumer solutions.

Download this ESG whitepaper to read about the consumerization trends and challenges and learn what enterprises should consider when evaluating online file sharing and collaboration solutions.
