The smart choice: opportunity from uncertainty

Video Early last week our usual host Tim Phillips was joined by Andrew Buss, service director with Freeform Dynamics, and Eran Feigenbaum, director of security for Google Apps, to discuss security in the cloud.

They look at whether SaaS is a safe option for businesses. What happens when the network is not available? Whether SaaS solutions are more secure than your own data center. And they ask how can you be sure service providers are not snooping your email, selling your data to the highest bidder, or divulging all your secrets?

The panel get a good grilling from the live attendees too who help to really get to the points that matter to your peers. So if you’ve been thinking about SaaS solutions for your business and still have some outstanding questions, this could be just the fillip.
