25 June 2013

At this year’s Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise (“CITE”) Conference & Expo in San Francisco, California, our team was able to meet with key professionals in the industry to share our experiences in secure, enterprise collaboration.

Both our Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Rainer Gawlick and our Chief Technology Officer John Landy presented at CITE on June 4, 2013. Their presentations centered on the need for secure, reliable collaboration focused on the user experience. With the release of our new product, Intralinks VIA™, Rainer and John were able to show attendees how users can share and UNshare™ sensitive documents securely and with ease. 

Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise

In his presentation, “From Cockpit to Office Park: The “Share” Paradigm in Modern Business,” Rainer Gawlick highlighted the different types of information businesses share both inside and outside of their companies. During his session, Rainer spoke to “productivity versus security” and acknowledged that “collaboration outside of the firewall has unique challenges.” Rainer ended his presentation by sharing a success story focused on how Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 is using Intralinks VIA™, to share information with ease, speed and security. As a result, attendees learned that you can have easy file sharing without compromising security for IT.

Industrialization or Consumerization? What We Can Learn from Each for Effective, Enterprise Collaboration

Industrialization or Consumerization? What We Can Learn from Each for Effective, Enterprise Collaboration

In his presentation, “Industrialization or Consumerization? What We Can Learn from Each for Effective, Enterprise Collaboration,” John Landy took a hands-on approach, speaking to the “consumerization of the workforce” and the drive for “people to want to get work done fast.” John provided hard facts about data loss and real-life oops moments from companies that have accidently shared information with the wrong people. “There needs to be a balance between security & control and freedom & productivity,” said John. In addition, John noted that businesses need to "share quickly, share confidently and share with protection." To demonstrate how businesses can securely share information with a sense of freedom, John and our Director of Product Management for Enterprise Apps, Mayank Choudhary, gave the audience an inside look into Intralinks VIA™ capabilities. The demonstration allowed the audience to see easy, secure sharing at work.

Productivity vs. Security

As the consumerization of IT impacts companies in a variety of ways, enterprises will need to discover new ways to efficiently address the impact of mobility and the cloud on their current business systems. We hope that through our presentations on Intralinks VIA™ and its capabilities, we have helped you recognize the scope of the need and the value of our solution.
