Optimizing Your Data Protection: Part Two



Watch the second installment in our two-part series with Tony Themelis on optimizing organizational data protection programs.

In the first installment of this series, VP of Product Strategy Tony Themelis offered strategies for simplifying and accelerating the first stages in the deployment of a data protection program. This installment offers additional tips for organizations facing modern day security challenges such as user education, the security talent shortage, and new threats requiring tailored defenses.

Driving security through real-time user education

An organization’s end users are often seen as the “weakest link” in its overall security. In this video, Tony outlines a model for providing users with real-time guidance to help replace risky behaviors with secure habits.

Alleviate the security talent shortage with managed security

With a steady stream of data breaches making headlines and attackers getting increasing creative, the demand for information security professionals has never been higher – but that doesn’t mean that organizations can’t have effective security programs without large security teams. In this video, Tony covers a new option for organizations that lack in-house security resources: managed security services.

The convergence of data protection and advanced threat defense

As threats continue to evolve, protection methods and efforts must similarly keep up. In this video, Tony discusses ways in which security teams can use existing data protection solutions in new ways to combat advanced threats.
