The essential guide to IT transformation

Live event Every one of your users has a computer at home, maybe a laptop, definitely a phone, and likes to log in from someone else's computer from time to time. They're carrying your data around, but often not your security policy.

You know how hard it is to match policy form device to device, location to location. If only it were possible to create a single policy and apply it to multiple devices - but that is what Blue coat thinks it can do. And with the correct policy in place, it can actively monitor your security levels, so that your most secure day is not the day after you created your excellent new policy, just before the users break it. Sasi Murthy is flying in from Blue Coat in the US just to see the Reg's famous studio. While she's there, we'll make her talk live about this, and answer your questions.

It sounds too good to be true. That's why we have recruited an expert to tell us about the problems that Reg readers have with one policy, many devices: Andy "Too Good" Buss, from Freeform Dynamics.
