The cloud computing and bring your own device (BYOD) movements represent a monumental shift in the way business is being done, yet these disruptive technologies create dangerous security gaps and significant IT management challenges. Mr. Olden will discuss how Symplified helps companies:
-- Bridge the security gaps that can prevent them from investing in SaaS, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS)
-- Adapt to the BYOD invasion using an identity-based approach for extending and enforcing security controls on managed and unmanaged devices
In addition, Mr. Olden will provide a Symplified business overview including:
-- The new Symplified Structure™ identity-as-a-service platform that enables service providers to embed identity management in cloud apps and services
-- How the company grew revenues by nearly 500 percent year-over-year in 2011, and increased customer adoption by 300 percent to over 4 million licensed users


The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Half Moon Bay, CA


Wednesday, June 27, 2:30-3:00pm
