Genie in a Bottle

John Thielens, Chief Architect, Cloud Services, Axway

“I’ve seen some organizations go to real extremes, where they lock down laptops, they turn off USB ports, there’s no CD burning. The only folks I’ve ever seen really do it effectively was the CIA, where they took your memory sticks away when you walked in. There was a guy with a machine gun by the door. And, by golly, data that they didn’t want to get out of that building wasn’t getting out of that building. But falling short of that, most folks don’t really do a very good job of applying lock and key to security when they really should be thinking about data security and access control.”
