Something as simple as a USB flash drive can be used to capture and exploit confidential company information in seconds. During this panel Callahan, along with industry experts from CacheBase, Discretix and Kilopass Technology, will discuss what options are available to protect confidential data from unauthorized users without hindering productivity.
