Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

On demand For over 30 years the IT department issued kit and managed it. But recently the techies have lost control to gadget hungry managers and workers who insist on bringing their own kit into the office.

Our latest Regcast, Many Devices, One Policy, explored how this trend is causing the IT department to pull out its collective hair, especially when it comes to the potential security threats when a business is not prepared for such a change.

Our Broadcast Editor, Tim Phillips was joined by Andrew Buss from Freeform Dynamics and Sasi Murthy from Blue Coat.

Andrew’s Reg reader research covered the problems involved in implementing a single security policy, while Sasi shared Blue Coat’s experiences in solving security problems, particularly when users are not just using personal devices but also multiple devices for work.

So did this panel reveal how a single security policy can work on multiple devices?
