Imation Executive to Offer Expert Insight and Advice on Data Protection at SNW Fall 2012

David Duncan to present the case for data protection across users and devices

OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security company, today announced David Duncan, director of Security and Software Solutions at Imation, will be speaking at SNW Fall 2012 in Santa Clara, California. SNW is the world’s largest independently produced conference series focused on the evolution of architecture for a new world of mobility, Big Data and business agility. SNW Fall 2012 is being held at the Hyatt Regency Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, California from October 16-19, 2012. Imation Scalable Storage will be exhibiting at Booth No. 509.

In his presentation, Mr. Duncan will debunk the idea that the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is the silver bullet for data protection. With businesses today challenged by the growing adoption of BYOD (bring your own device), IT departments are faced with a new set of security questions including:

  • What happens when data is moved or copied from a TPM enabled computer HDD to a portable device or a non TPM enabled computer, or is backed up to a non TPM enabled backup device?
  • How can we maintain protection for data throughout its lifecycle - as it moves from user to user and from device to device?

Continuous data protection that follows data across topologies and devices is essential.


What: No Silver Bullet: Why TPM's Should Not be the Sole Solution for Protecting Your Data

Where: Hyatt Regency Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, California

When: Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 10:45 a.m.
