Gartner Security and Risk Booth Tight

Bitglass just returned from a fun, technology-packed week at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit!  With cloud access security brokers (CASBs) being the hottest topic at the conference, we had a busy booth full of potential prospects eager to learn more about Bitglass and, of course, to get their hands on one of our limited edition "Rock the CASB – Zero-day Tour" t-shirts. Key takeaway? Cloud security continues to be top of mind, with enterprises of all sizes and from all industries seeking out CASBs for a broad range of applications – far beyond the Office 365 interest of the past.
