As a cloud-based business services suite, Microsoft® Office 365™ provides organizations with access to web, mobile and desktop versions of traditional Office software tools, cloud storage space for enterprise file sharing, and hosted services for communication and social. By making these services available across desktop, mobile, and web platforms, Microsoft is experiencing increased adoption from both consumers and businesses while expanding the possibilities for anytime-anywhere collaboration.
Yet for all its promise, Office 365 poses a meaningful adoption and security challenges for the IT organization. This is where VMware Workspace™ ONE™ comes in — we’ve brought together the power of VMware AirWatch® and VMware Identity Manager™ to accelerate and secure Office 365 deployments.

"The business and security benefits of GeoTrust Enterprise Security Center
IT departments face a range of issues—some obvious, some more subtle—when dealing with SSL certificates. These issues can have serious business and security consequences. GeoTrust Enterprise Security Center was designed with customer input to address these problems."
CCU sought to encrypt its backup tapes for keeping customer data secure in transit and in storage at the offsite tape-vault vendor’s facility. As a financial institution, CCU was subject to stringent government regulations. With nearly 60 gigabytes of data to encrypt each night, CCU knew that a software solution was out of the question.
Given Payformance’s longstanding commitment to protecting the privacy of its clients’ information, the company has decided to investigate data encryption solutions for its primary hard drive storage and secondary backup tape storage. With its multi-vendor interoperability, NeoScale’s CryptoStor storage security appliances emerge as the obvious choice.
Chartered in 1973, San Francisco-based Spectrum Federal Credit Union serves over 12,000 members. When the issue arose on how to protect their members’ personal data residing on backup tapes, Spectrum FCU took no chances – they and their Techical Advisory Board made the decision to encrypt this important information with the help of NeoScale Systems, an undisputed leader in this emerging market.
The HSC network services group supports more than 2000 desktops, servers and backend systems such as e-mail, file, networking, application and storage services for general administration, dental and medical schools. HSC wanted to manage and reduce HIPAA compliance costs and processes associated with protecting PHI data within its storage infrastructure – a legacy SAN environment with evolving applications.
Qsent needed to shore up its disaster recovery strategy. This meant sending backup tapes – each with more than 2.5 terabytes of data – between data centers and storing them offsite. To keep all its data safe and secure, Qsent chose NeoScale’s CryptoStor wire-speed tape security appliance to encrypt and decrypt data.
With horror stories in the news every week about lost or stolen laptops and backup tapes, the senior management team at Oregon Community Credit Union knew they had to do everything within their powers to protect their critical data as it traveled offsite to a third-party tape vaulting vendor. They were tasked with finding an affordable solution that would strike a balance between security, ease of use, and scalability.
As more states pass regulations governing the security, confidentiality, and integrity of customer data, a leading national bank has recognized its need to ensure the safety and security of personal data for its thousands of customers. To ensure compliance and maintain the security of this information, the bank has deployed NeoScale’s CryptoStor Tape appliances to help accomplish its objectives.

Mobility services are frequently being positioned as part of broader application transformation offerings, enabling enterprises to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach, with the development of enterprise app stores and the ability to leverage personal devices for business functions.
This white paper describes software and services that accelerate and simplify the creation of internally developed or “in-house” enterprise mobile applications. It also describes how to deploy and manage these mobile apps on both company-provided and “bring-your-own” smartphones and tablet computers. Solving the complete mobile app lifecycle means transforming enterprise apps for multiscreen devices; facilitating design, testing, security, performance, management, and compliance to reach new customers and employee expectations.

Man Investments is one of the world’s largest independent alternative asset managers.
With a fast moving and diverse IT infrastructure, Man needed to be able to automate software license compliance reporting in conjunction with optimizing license usage and sourcing.
The real test of any SAM system goes beyond creating a one-time Effective Licensing Position (ELP) for a given software publisher. To be truly valuable, the SAM solution has to have the ability to manage change.
Being able to work from a dependable list of software that has been approved by, and which also serves the business, means that finite IT & SAM resources are not wasted through the support of legacy software that might be deemed redundant, and should keep a company on track technically by not becoming dependent on aging software.
This 10 –Minute Guide from SAM experts at Snow Software will show how to establish and maintain a Software Catalog for the purpose of ensuring that your software estate remains relevant and fit for its business purpose.
In a perfect world, managing the discovery of software assets, the capture of license entitlements and optimization of an organization’s software usage and compliance situation would be a single-click operation. Unfortunately, the world is not perfect and those charged with managing an organization’s software compliance, availability and expenditure face a number of challenges that can easily derail a Software Asset Management (SAM) program.
This paper from the SAM experts at Snow Software investigates some of the major challenges facing SAM managers and IT executives and highlights how to build a successful strategy to overcome them, ensuring the SAM program delivers true value to the business.
This technical case study addressing key and certificate security issues is designed for security conscious enterprises to understand real-life attack scenarios that threaten their businesses in today’s world. This white paper demonstrates a recent attack that used cryptographic keys and digital certificates as well as guidance on how to protect certificates and keys and quickly discover and remediate breaches. This paper should be read by more technical IT security staff who are interested in detailed attack methods and remediation tactics. The executive summary is intented for IT Security leaders (CISOs and their direct reports) and addresses the proof-of-concept attack impacts on the business.
The attack scenario described in this technical white paper is based on a reproduction of a real-world attack in a Raxis test environment that simulated an enterprise security infrastructure.

Modern enterprises are rapidly shifting core business processes away from legacy
technologies and standardizing on mobile devices and cloud services. As a result,
these organizations are quickly outgrowing basic mobile device management (MDM)
capabilities and apps like email and calendar. Building a secure mobile and cloud
architecture now requires a comprehensive approach to enterprise mobility management
(EMM). It requires a unified platform with defense-grade security, massive scalability, a
broad ecosystem of technology partners, enhanced Office 365 security, and integrated
desktop and mobile management. And it has to provide all of this without locking
customers into a proprietary technology stack.
The economy isn’t standing still. For your business to succeed, your employees shouldn’t either. That’s why companies of all types are moving to empower their mobile workforce and engage with customers in innovative ways.
To realize their potential, enterprises need to find ways to make a mobile workforce as productive when they’re away from the office and on their mobile devices as they are in the office. This means mobility systems must give users a seamless experience across the ever-expanding types of mobile devices employees use, for easy access to business-critical applications. At the same time, it must deliver a secure workspace that complies with security regulations, protects devices, plus guards business and customer data, from expanding security threats.
