Guidance on the strategies and tools needed for a secure and productive bring-your-own-device program. Security is a prime concern with a BYOD initiative and organizations must adjust their security strategy to accommodate increased mobility, particularly for BYOD users.
The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices have become embedded in enterprise processes, thanks to the consumerization of IT and a new generation of workers raised
on mobile technologies. Consumer devices and bring-yourown-device (BYOD) programs are driving a new wave of business process innovation, changing the way customers, employees and partners interact with organizations and with each other. In fact, mobile devices and applications are catching up with — and in many cases surpassing — PCs in the quality and functionality of their applications.
As mobile computing becomes an increasingly important technology, the need for robust, reliable wireless networks is growing. In addition to enterprise-issued devices, users are bringing their own tablets and smartphones and demanding access to IT resources. Organizations need a wireless infrastructure that can support these demands.
Our research shows that in addition to mobile demands, aging hardware is driving many organizations' wireless upgrade plans. Download this white paper to read more about the research.
A growing number of organizations are realizing the benefits of mobile devices, including increased productivity, enhanced efficiency and speedier response times. Yet while the use of mobile devices typically leads to lower costs and additional revenue opportunities, it also brings challenges associated with device and application procurement, data connections, service costs, content management and — most important — security.
Client virtualization technologies are redefining the way IT resources are
delivered to end users, and creating exciting new opportunities for IT
organizations as they work to streamline and improve operations. By
abstracting applications and operating systems from client hardware,
virtualization enables client assets to be stored on central servers and
delivered to client endpoints.
The implications are profound. End users can log on to any networkconnected
computing device and access their custom operating system
and application environment. For IT departments, central management of
client virtual machine (VM) images brings efficiencies in everything from
routine maintenance and updating to operating system upgrades.
See how we can help you build a data center solution that supports today’s demands and positions your organization for success.
Your current data center could be holding you back more than you realize. In today’s fast-paced world, some of your most critical operations revolve around technology. And for those systems to work, you need an infrastructure that’s ready to support your changing workloads and organizational needs.
At CDW, we bring you the solutions and the support you
need to further your goals. We can assess your environment,
design the best approach, deploy your solution and manage it
throughout its lifecycle. Because with a flexible, resilient and
efficient data center, you can support flexibility, resiliency and
efficiency throughout your organization.
As data volumes grow, you need more than just storage space. Let us help you orchestrate a solution that brings you the scalability and agility you need to move your organization forward.
Storage needs are changing rapidly, and legacy appliances and processes just can’t keep up. Old systems are running slowly and filling up fast. At CDW, we can help you evolve your storage with a smart solution that’s ready for what lies ahead.
When it comes to collaboration and productivity for today’s everything, everywhere workforce, cloud is a business necessity, not an option. Yet, how do you master cloud’s complexity?
CDW brings cloud down to earth: business-focused solutions from the industry’s most knowledgeable people. Think cloud, think CDW.
Endpoint security is at a critical juncture. Increasingly, employees
at organizations of all sizes are using a wider variety than ever of
desktop and mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and
laptops, as they work from broadly dispersed locations, including
home offices. Often, organizations are permitting and even
encouraging employees to use their own devices under BYOD
(bring your own device) policies. With these devices, employees
are accessing not only corporate data and applications, but also
social media, banking and shopping sites. Download this white paper to learn more about endpoint security.

Cloud-enabled managed hosting brings cloudlike consumption and provisioning attributes to the traditional managed hosting market in Europe. This is a new evolution of a mature market, with a wide variety of vendor offerings and capabilities, so infrastructure managers must choose with care.
The next generation user expects more do-it-yourself IT offerings. Whether it’s self-service portals with interfaces to rival Amazon or personal mobile devices with 24/7 business access, users are requesting more self-service functions and capability.
To the modern user of technology “consumer-grade” has become a standard, and it’s ITs’ job to not only appease but genuinely satisfy contemporary users. This research highlights four ways to satisfy the modern user who brings their own knowledge, devices, applications and technical expectations to the workplace.
This white paper will discuss how intelligently integrating the right people, processes, and technology automation solutions can help you overcome these obstacles. Combining this integration with a tested and proven best practice framework, such as ITIL, enables IT organizations to reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, elevate service quality, and demonstrate the value IT brings to the business.
This document is a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Cisco Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Solutions. It presents system-level requirements, recommendations, guidelines, and best practices for deploying personal, corporate, and guest devices onto a network to fit your business needs. As Cisco continues to develop and enhance the technologies required to implement a BYOD solution, this CVD will continue to evolve and be updated to provide the latest guidelines, recommendations, and best practices for designing and deploying a BYOD solution.
More than ever, the data center is a gateway to opportunity, responsible for bringing together the data, applications, and IT resources needed to support growth and innovation. At Cisco we have the opportunity to observe how data center infrastructure
is evolving in response to market and technology trends. In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
