Today, most organizations are facing a common problem: users are introducing rogue applications and creating consumer-based file sharing and collaboration tools. This can lead to a number of commercial risks, such as the loss of intellectual property, contravention of compliance, and breaching privacy and transparency legislation as well as internal data policy mandates.

On March 20th, we will be co-hosting a webinar with Forrester Research, Inc. to share insights into how implementing policies can change the file sharing and collaboration landscape.

The webinar is based on research conducted by Forrester’s Rob Koplowitz, which covers the best practices in selecting and deploying secure file sharing and collaboration applications for the enterprise.

We will detail how you can stay ahead of the BYOD trend and provide policy-based data security and control in file sharing. Forrester’s Rob Koplowitz, vice president, principal analyst serving CIOs, and Workshare’s Dave Ewart, director of product marketing will discuss:

  • What are the benefits of file synchronization and sharing?
  • Why are users threatening corporate IP by using rogue applications and what the organizations can to do prevent this?
  • What organizations should look for in a secure platform.
  • Understanding what users want and how to meet their needs. We will look at how one particular international law firm across three countries is leveraging Workshare to share files and collaborate securely.

We’ll be holding the webinar at:
Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. PT/ 4 p.m. GMT.
