Practicing safe SAAS

Dave Shephard, Vice President APAC, and Wayne Phillips, Solutions Engineer at Bitglass, discussed around Practicing safe SAAS.

With the adoption of Cloud, corporate data is moving beyond the firewall and introduces new risks and threats to an organization. And with more Enterprises embracing BYOD the Endpoint is increasingly unmanaged. These IT shifts mean Businesses can no longer rely on traditional security tools that they’ve placed trust in up to now.

A new strategy is required, one that provides data & threat protection for any application, on any device, from anywhere. Join Bitglass in this workshop where they will be discussing common Cloud security challenges and demonstrating a range of high-value Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) use-cases that will deliver almost immediate value.

Dave joined Bitglass in October 2017 to oversee growth plans across Asia Pacific and Japan. Bitglass helps enterprises of all sizes to secure their data when its outside of the firewall; often in public cloud applications and being accessed from unmanaged or BYO/mobile devices.  Founded in 2012 and Headquartered in Silicon Valley, the company has more than 300 customers and 125 employees. Bitglass is privately owned and has raised more than $85m across three funding rounds.
