This session is on-demand (running time 57 minutes)
Improve your compliance with the Microsoft cloud
This session is on-demand (running time 21 minutes)
The use of the public cloud continues to grow for enterprises of all types, be it moving large parts of our infrastructure to it, moving to Microsoft 365 or looking at the way we can use cloud tactically to solve traditional IT challenges.
What kind of challenges can we use the cloud to solve? How about an age-old problem like deploying distributed file services across an enterprise?
One of the issues with distributed storage is that many of the storage solutions we deploy in the datacentre are not, by design, built to share files across multiple locations, they are not equipped to efficiently move data around and deal with problems like simultaneous locking of files.
NetApp Global File Cache is a technology built on top of the public cloud to take advantage of what the cloud offers to help solve the traditional problems that distributed storage systems encounter.
In this Tech Video, NetApp's Jaap Van Duijvenbode joins us to provide a deep dive into this impressive technology and how it can help solve both traditional tech challenges as well as allowing integration with the public cloud.
Data is increasingly crucial to any modern enterprise and managing it is ever more challenging and as it continues to grow in importance and volume the threats to it also continue to grow, from accidental deletion to targeted theft and of course more stringent regulation.
In the face of these challenges, how do we maintain strong governance and compliance control over our data? What tools are there to help us? And how can we improve our compliance posture?
Microsoft 365 cloud platform includes many tools that you can freely take advantage of to improve your compliance posture, including the powerful Compliance Score Dashboard. How does it help you improve your data compliance posture?
In this Tech Video, Microsoft's Stefanie Jacobs (@GDPRQueen) joins us to provide an introduction to compliance score and how it helps simplify compliance management by providing:
Continuous assessments: automatically scans through your Microsoft 365 environments to detect and monitor the effectiveness of data protection controls in your system.
Recommended actions: provides recommendations and step-by-step guidance for how to implement controls to maximize your score.
Built-in control mapping: helps you stay current with the evolving compliance landscape by providing a built-in common control framework.
