    Opportunities and Challenges in the New World of Storage

    In today's connected world, businesses need innovative solutions from entrepreneurs and major IT companies to manage security risks that threaten business objectives. As businesses turn to new storage solutions—outsourcing, virtualization and others—how can they secure their information? How can they be sure it is protected from privacy breaches, professional cyber crime organizations and counterfeiting, to name a few. What are the issues and where are the opportunities to address these issues and provide solutions? What is the perspective of the venture community on the winning technologies and potential for startups to succeed in this increasingly complex environment? Visionary technologists and investors will share their thinking and predictions for technology and development practices.
