Fasoo Hits Nerve with Message of Security, Governance and Productivity at RSA 2017After two days at the 2017 RSA Conference in San Francisco, it looks like Fasoo’s message of Security, Governance and Productivity is hitting a nerve with security professionals, analysts, executives and other attendees.  As the regulatory and business climate change to overcome constant threats to businesses and the data they use to drive profitability, companies are looking for a more comprehensive and practical approach to providing secure ways to conduct business.

An interesting theme at this year’s show is Business Driven Security.  I think the convergence of business and security is finally coming to a head as boards and executives realize they must think of security solutions as a business driver that helps mitigate business risk so they can propel their businesses forward.

One main focus this year is helping financial organizations comply with the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYS DFS) cybersecurity regulations.  Fasoo employees spoke to numerous banks and mortgage companies at the booth that are affected by this new regulation to encrypt nonpublic data and provide clear access control and audit trails.  The Fasoo Data Security Framework can help protect sensitive data from getting into the wrong hands and help meet this comprehensive regulation.

Fasoo Data Security and Intelligence Document Platform on Display at RSA Conference 2017Fasoo has a big presence at the RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco where we will showcase our newly expanded data security and management framework which helps companies track, manage and secure their data.

Focusing on the business themes of Security, Governance and Productivity, Fasoo is helping executives and boards of directors comply with enhanced cybersecurity regulations while ensuring they can meet the needs of constantly changing business models that demand secure collaboration to get things done.

Today’s business world demands a new look at how we define and protect the borders of our organizations because our data is created, stored and consumed in systems that may be outside the traditional information security and document management models.  Visitors to Fasoo’s booth #S1239 will see demonstrations of the Fasoo Data Security Framework and Wrapsody that together helps organizations consistently control, secure, track and manage documents no matter where they travel.  This new, integrated data-centric approach overcomes legacy solution limitations that comprehensively satisfies organizational demands placed on data security, governance and productivity.
