Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Regcast Trying to keep smartphones off your network? Forget it. They're here.

Trying to avoid having to manage consumer mobile devices? You're wasting your time. Better to accept the inevitable - you're going to have to do it.

At 3pm on 18 October 2010 latest Regcast deals head-on with a problem that every sysadmin is going to have this year: managing those iPhones, iPads, Blackberrys and 'Droids, whether you supplied them or not. It is not a question of whether you let users access their data, it's about how you find out who's connected, how you keep the data secure, how you stop it from getting mixed up with personal data - and how you make sure it's deleted when they leave.

Joining the Reg's Tim Phillips on our Regcast are Andrew Buss from Freeform Dynamics, who will be sharing the latest research showing how quickly consumer mobile devices are being adopted on the network, and Ahmed Datoo from Zenprise, who will share practical lessons from a company that provides tools to help you solve these problems.

Make smartphones a blessing, not a curse. Register here to join us. It's urgent. ®
