The convergence of cloud and mobile computing is one of the biggest IT trends today. This growing trend is transforming IT in business. Mobile devices improve employee productivity and cloud computing allows a mobile workforce to be even more efficient, allowing access to key applications and systems from anywhere. The fact is that businesses cannot ignore either today and will need to start implementing a new approach to IT in order to succeed in today’s world where the consumerization of IT is unavoidable.
However, with information spreading outside of the firewall, protecting information is more important than ever. Businesses need to put the ‘I’ back in IT and focus on the information, not the device or the data centre.
In conjunction with Symantec’s flagsip customer event, Vision EMEA, we will be hosting a twitter chat on this topic – the convergence of cloud and mobile. The chat will incorporate live updates from Vision during the session titled ‘Strategies for Security and Management in a Mobile and Virtual World’ on Tuesday 13.30-14.30.
Feel free to submit your questions on the topic to @SymcVision and join to have your say by following #SymVision #ITtends.
Synopsis: Strategies for Security and Management in a Mobile and Virtual World
IT organizations are experiencing a significant shift at both the endpoint and within the datacenter. The use of smartphones, tablets and non-Windows devices promise to boost productivity and satisfaction for the end-user, while the move to virtualize mission-critical applications in the datacenter lets IT reap the benefits of cloud-era architectures. The challenge for most IT organizations is how to quickly adapt to these changes, while ensuring that security and management aren’t compromised. Join this session to understand how Symantec can help you tackle the latest cyber-security threats, make risk visible, measurable and actionable across your organization, and ensure protection for devices and data, both on-premise and in the cloud. You will learn about our new product launches, see demos of our latest technologies and get a glimpse into our upcoming releases.
