The World of Sharing and Securing Enterprise Data, Special Guest in Studio, Vineet Jain, co-founder CEO of Egnyte
Cloud Storage
Technology and the global economy has provided many advantages to employers and employees alike. One example, is the increasing use of remote or mobile workers who are not tied to a company specific worksite. In order for these “remote” workers to function, they need access to company data/files no matter where they might be. Included in that remote access is the worker’s desire or ability to tap into company resources from any device. Add on top of that, the desire to share information with suppliers, customers and other interested third parties.

While the remote workforce allows companies to expand their footprint beyond the borders of their physical facilities, it does create an IT nightmare. The familiar struggle between worker productivity and IT’s requirement for locking down and controlling access to corporate data has become the catalyst for a rapidly growing industry to deliver file-sharing and storage on an enterprise basis.

Anytime, anywhere but secure access of electronic corporate data is one of the biggest challenges that entities of all sizes face. Switching to the cloud sounds easy, but it may not be possible due to regulatory concerns or even practical if a company has a large investment in their own servers. Ultimately, the proper storage and efficient distribution of electronic company resources represents a puzzle that all companies are trying to solve.
