This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS
and Android. While Android has higher consumer market
share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise,
accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1
2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1
The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive
its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely
from security trends observed in the consumer space.
Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81%
global market share2
, predictably invites more broad-based
attacks than iOS.
When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise,
however, both need threat protection because at a
fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar
vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be
relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and
can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS
app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and
they face the risk that attackers will cont

Mobile device Management was just the beginning of enterprise security needs for iOS, Android, Windows and the ever expanding universe of devices. Data, Apps and access are what will send businesses into a new galaxy of great performance. Get there at safely light-speed with Enterprise Mobility Management.
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.
Creating Your Needs Analysis First. When buying networking equipment: routers, switches, firewalls, and network management solutions for your company or organization, it's essential to create a needs analysis first, so that you make the right decisions from multiple standpoints
Ask any cybersecurity professional and she’ll tell you that her job is getting increasingly difficult. Why? Most will point to a combination of the dangerous threat landscape, IT complexity, and their overwhelming workload. These issues are driving a major transition in enterprise security. Large organizations must move beyond a threat prevention mentality to
become proactive cyber-¬-attack “hunters” that constantly monitor their networks for signs of trouble. This shift to proactive hunting will require new technologies that collect, process, and analyze massive amounts of security data, offer intelligent security analytics for real-¬-time incident detection, integrate threat intelligence to align suspicious internal activities with
external threats, and provide analysts with the right data analytics features to query and manipulate data for historical investigations.

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

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative.
The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with IT’s changing requirements – a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.
The purpose of this paper is to assess the switching requirements for next-generation campus networks incorporating wired switches, wireless LANs and WAN routers in an intuitive, intent-based network supporting cloud, mobility, IoT and digitization, with
