This week, the team from TITUS headed to San Francisco for BoxWorks 15. As a first-time sponsor of the event, we weren’t sure what to expect, but we headed out prepared to grab some attention…
I love the Gartner Hype Cycle, it’s one of my favorite things about working in the software industry. For anyone who hasn’t seen a Gartner Hype Cycle it looks like this:
Now I’ve never seen any statistical proof that new technologies progress from a “Innovation Trigger” through the “Peak of Inflated Expectations” and the “Trough of Disillusionment” before climbing the “Slope of Enlightenment’ and arriving at the “Plateau of Productivity”. But if you’ve been around a while, and seen technologies come and go, it seems true. Stephen Colbert might claim it has “truthiness”. It’s a lot like that old joke about the 7 stages of a software project:
Wouldn’t it be great to say there is one product, from one vendor, that can protect all of your data? The reality, however, is that you need a security ecosystem and framework to protect your most valuable data assets.

Insider threats are a serious issue for any organization. In a survey conducted by Osterman Research in February 2015, we found that during the previous 12 months 26% of organizations have had sensitive or confidential information accidentally or maliciously leaked through email, 8% had experienced data leakage through a cloud-based tool, and 5% had experienced it through social media. Adding to the problem of data exfiltration are issues like phishing and malware installed from simple activities like Web surfing or accessing email: the same survey found that 67% of organizations were victims of malware infiltration from a successful email-based phishing attack, while 63% were victims of malware infiltration through employee Web surfing.

Mobile devices make it easy to access information from almost anywhere and to share it with just about everyone on earth. However, by their nature as small and highly portable, mobile devices are also more easily lost or stolen—and with them—the data they contain.

While there are many solutions designed to protect data on mobile devices, what if you could delete sensitive data from the device before it is put at risk?
For financial services organizations, protecting their customers’ sensitive information is a top priority. When sensitive financial information is breached, fines, lawsuits, and embarrassing headlines are just a few of the many consequences that can occur. (more…)
