SAN FRANCISCO, RSA Conference – February 28, 2012 – Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), the Business Interaction Networks company, today introduced its Social Enterprise Survival Guide during the 2012 RSA Conference. Designed to serve as a blueprint for what CIOs need to consider when incorporating social technologies, the survival guide explores key considerations to ensure the highest levels of security, compliance and visibility into business interactions.
Social enterprise technology is making sweeping changes to business processes, as companies are moving closer together to share and analyze data more rapidly, in order to improve the speed of business. Yet with greater adoption, so rises new security threats to information security and business continuity. Additionally, as companies embrace Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work, and employees are using personal Facebook or Google+ accounts on corporate machines, IT departments must identify the best approach to mitigate the new security and compliance risks opened by these resources.
Axway’s Securing the Social Enterprise: A Survival Guide
presents the core steps for IT managers to reduce risks, prevent data leaks and avoid sharing information with the wrong connections, all while still enabling secure and efficient enterprise collaboration. These tenets include:
- Integrate Directly with Your Customers and Partners
Social enterprises cultivate speed-to-delivery by creating the data connections that drive real-time business decisions and opportunities. Integrating systems with partners provides greater speed and accuracy while providing open and secure communication.
- See into Every Business Interaction
Social enterprises want to share more. Yet risk to your data, your customers’ data and your brand must be kept at bay. Preventing leaks and reducing points of entry are only possible with end-to-end visibility that gives IT teams the tools to monitor information sharing wherever and however it’s happening.
- Support the “Right” Connections Through Policy
Not every business can use a one-size-fits-all approach to certificate management or PKI. Organizations must be able to customize policies and rules according to business needs, using automated policy management to save the sanity of IT managers.
- Connect Directly to Critical Endpoints
Social enterprise can’t live in silos. It’s just good business sense to empower employees to share information whenever and however they need to, using the tools that are best for them. This means providing them with secure, direct lines of communication and information sharing – whether for files, instant messaging or email.
- Cover Your Assets When it Comes to Compliance
The social enterprise needs built-in reporting capabilities to meet the requirements of industry-specific watchdogs, and to make sure the CIO/CFO doesn’t get caught with their pants down.
