The BYOD demand was initially created by the popularity of the iPhone and the iPad from Apple. Relying on the closed iOS operating environment, these devices presented a fairly straightforward challenge for businesses that wanted to allow access to corporate apps without compromising the security of company data. Read to find out more.
Device-centric management strategies have prevailed over the last several years, but this approach can no longer keep pace with the increasing number of remote workers who need to access more applications across multiple platforms. Enterprise IT leaders must shift from locking down devices to securing the corporate applications, data, and other proprietary content that reside on these devices. It’s time to move beyond mobile device management to a more holistic management method.
Gone are the days when mobility involved simply choosing a standardized device. Today, Enterprise IT leaders have to think about not just devices, but apps, data, storage, management (of devices, apps, content, and telecom expenses), security, and support. If you don’t consider your overall business goals as you develop and refine your mobility strategy, you risk investing in mobile technology for mobility’s sake alone. Smart decisions make it easier to adapt over time while keeping a lid on costs. Skyrocketing mobility costs are a common fear for organizations, but careful planning will help keep your mobility spend safely earthbound.
: Interested in knowing what CIOs and other IT executives really think about the future of enterprise mobility? Enterprise Mobile uncovers the results of a survey conducted to assess the business impact of enterprise mobility based on input from technology leaders. The webinar provides tips to prepare for the future of enterprise mobility, secrets to removing barriers to mobile strategy implementation, and shares trends around how other companies are embracing mobile security.
Creating a BYOD policy helps to minimize frustration and risk as you take advantage of cost savings. With a BYOD policy in place, you’ll be able to confidently move forward with your own BYOD program, staying at the forefront of mobility trends and fostering improved productivity and user satisfaction. Using a short template can help you identify the key elements that your policy should include. The more policy elements you’re able to cover in the template and the more elements you add on your own, the easier it will be to create the final, formal BYOD policy.
Find out what enterprise companies and their technology leaders think about the future of mobility by exploring the results of a recent survey. You’ll learn about the strategies organizations are using to implement mobility, obstacles they’re encountering along the way, and the drivers behind the push to go mobile. With 2014 just ahead, this document gives helpful suggestions for future planning.
Enterprise app decisions may be some of the most important decisions you make. This brief will help guide your organization by providing valuable insight on delivering, supporting and securing mobile apps.
Mobile device management solutions are designed to set and enforce management at the device level, but have no inherent control of applications or content on those devices. As a result, IT leaders are looking to enterprise mobility management solutions to enable management, configuration and security across devices, applications and content – effectively addressing the problem of information sprawl. Learn how the partnership between Box and MobileIron can help you execute a “mobile first” strategy that manages and secures both mobile apps and content.

Enterprises must prepare for the emerging digital user. Future interactions among people, whether enterprise employees, partners or customers, will be primarily digital and heavily influenced by mobile devices, social media, analytics and the cloud. User interactions with systems of record, such as databases and files, will largely give way to interactions with systems of engagement, such as social media.
Today, 61% of North American and European enterprise information workers are choosing their smartphones for work either on their own or from a company-approved list. According to Forrester’s Business Technographics® Global Devices And Security Workforce Survey, 2014, 53% of employees are unwilling to make any kind of sacrifice to their user experience in the interest of heightened security.

In today’s application economy, interaction between a business and
its customers, partners and employees is increasingly through apps.
And omni-channel access to these applications—from anywhere at

As a result, APIs are perhaps the most critical technology in digital
business design today. APIs sit between your application clients
—apps, websites and devices—and application backends. By
leveraging APIs, you can securely stretch the boundaries of your
enterprise by tapping into a broad array of digital businesses, digital
customers and digital devices.
But just as important as the API, is the application backend itself.
Behind the API, the data access layer and application logic layer are
doing the heavy lifting—implementing business rules, maintaining
data consistency and managing interactions with various data
sources. These three com
Increasingly, enterprises are opening their data and applications to partners, developers, mobile apps and cloud
services. APIs provide a standardized way to open up information assets across the web, mobile devices, serviceoriented
architecture (SOA) and the cloud. However, to make API information sharing safe, reliable and cost-effective,
enterprises must deal with critical security, performance management and data adaptation challenges.
CA API Management combines advanced functionality for back-end integration, mobile optimization, cloud
orchestration and developer management. It is unique in its ability to address the full breadth of enterprise
API management challenges.

Office 365, Salesforce, and other cloud apps deliver a boost in employee productivity, but this benefit comes at a price. Once data moves outside an enterprise, security teams lose visibility and control into how it’s accessed and used.
There is also the risk of unsanctioned apps or Shadow IT – the cloud apps setup and managed outside of IT that they have no visibility of; all this leaves an organization having to manage up to 1,000 cloud apps*. Deploying a CASB solution can help you discover and assess risk from unsanctioned cloud apps and control sanctioned cloud app use.
Through a hands-on evaluation, ESG discovered that Forcepoint CASB:
Reduces threat response times
Grants visibility and context into user activity
Controls user access to cloud apps from different locations/devices

A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network.
Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
Un nuovo modello di sicurezza che vale la pena di studiare, e di imitare.
La sicurezza enterprise si basa, tradizionalmente, su una strategia che blocca gli endpoint degli utenti e posiziona la rete all'interno di una sorta di perimetro fortificato. Oggi, questa strategia non è in grado di supportare né proteggere l'uso di device mobile e le funzionalità SaaS, che esistono al di fuori di quel perimetro. Di conseguenza, i Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) sono alla ricerca di soluzioni nuove, in grado di tutelare queste tecnologie e di adattarsi al modificarsi di minacce ed esigenze di business.
In today's cloud-based, mobile IT world, the need for security is rapidly growing. As enterprises continue to depend on the cloud for delivery of applications and more workers are using multiple types of devices to access those applications, the need to control who has access to what is also growing. This Technology Spotlight discusses the challenges of cloud identity access management and provides guidance on which IAM architectural solutions would benefit your business.
