Beyond Secure Chat: Workflows & Integrations

As team messaging and chat applications proliferate, a wide range of enterprises are starting to grasp the critical importance of security and compliance in their team collaboration deployments. At the same time, there are growing opportunities for significant business benefits once the risks are mitigated: Your enterprise can integrate these new collaboration tools with existing workflows, and automate business processes to make your knowledge workers more efficient and thereby gain a competitive edge.

In this webinar, Irwin Lazar, VP and Service Director at Nemertes Research, will discuss the major security and compliance risks with team messaging and chat applications, and how to mitigate them. He’ll then describe (and show examples) of how these tools can be integrated with your existing systems, without sacrificing security or usability — and in fact, improve it. You’ll come away from his presentation with a clearer path toward more secure and effective team collaboration systems for your enterprise.
