10 Cloud Computing Add-Ons To Watch

Waltham, Mass.-based Aprigo makes an on-demand data management platform dubbed NINJA that lets IT departments reduce storage costs and control access to sensitive data. Aprigo NINJA puts data management in the cloud. The SaaS tool requires no changes to existing infrastructure or processes, has no agents or databases to install and makes it easy to manage data in multiple remote sites.
And Aprigo's recent addition of NINJA for Google Docs to the Google Apps Marketplace furthers its cloud presence. NINJA for Google Docs lets IT admins see which data is exposed to which users and examine other metrics concerning that data, for example how old it is, how important the information is and other details. NINJA for Google Docs offers data governance and control over documents and other unstructured data in Google Apps and lets users view and manage how documents are shared and what data can be shared inside or outside the company.
