October 3, LONDON, UK - Workshare, a leading provider of secure collaboration applications, today announced that it will be showcasing Workshare Professional 8 at the I.R.I.S ECM Customer Day. The event theme this year is ‘Smart Enterprise Information Management’ and will be held at the iconic national EYE Film Institute Netherlands, on 8th October 2013.

The annual event is attended by senior IT and business professionals, who come together to discuss the latest advances in technologies for information management. Workshare will be demonstrating innovative, secure file-sharing capabilities that enable businesses to reduce the number of unauthorized, consumer-grade applications being used by employees.

Workshare’s senior director of product marketing Dave Ewart will be speaking at the event on “Securely sharing documents beyond the corporate network”. Ewart will be highlighting data security risks around the use of consumer-grade applications and providing advice on how IT and business professionals can control who can access documents.

Ewart commented, “Businesses are losing control of their corporate documents and information due to people using consumer-grade applications for work. There have been many cases where highly sensitive documents have been exposed, leading to damaging consequences for the company. Businesses must seek secure alternatives that are built for business, and gain control of their documents; while also allowing their employees to work how they want to, and using any device.”
