Five File Governance Policies and Features Companies Must Have
It seems that not a week goes by without another high profile data breach or
revelation about lax security, both on premise and on-Cloud. Given this
companies should, at a bare minimum, consider implementing the following 5
file governance policies in place in their company to aid with file security:
1. Secure Identity Management: Ensure that an Identity Management policy is

You know, despite all the modern Smartphones, and my new Treo 750v, I still
always have a hankering to go back to my Palm Treo 650. The ease of use is
