Security for public cloud (SaaS) applications is one of the most obvious challenges facing all organisations right now. Rapid increases in the adoption of cloud, mobile and BYOD is driving data outside of traditional firewalls which results in visibility blind spots, privacy concerns and greatly increased potential for human error. As users interact directly with SaaS applications from their personal (unmanaged) devices they have the potential to share sensitive data inappropriately... and often unintentionally.
Bitglass’s Next-Gen Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution enables your customers and prospects to safely embrace cloud SaaS apps while ensuring access to sensitive data is controlled and accidental data leakage prevented.
If you were unable to attend the events you can learn more about this fantastic market opportunity through this handy guide.
