With bring your own device (BYOD) becoming the norm of enterprise mobility, mobile device management becomes crucial for enterprises.
While the bring your own device strategy for enterprise mobility improves productivity in enterprises, it also come with associated challenges. Enterprises today are flooded with a variety of devices, operating systems, applications and access points that are forcing IT to reevaluate the traditional "defense in depth" security model that served them well in the glory days of the laptop and PC.
To discuss the challenges associated with mobile device management, especially the mobile security concerns, Fiberlink, a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS (News - Alert)) solutions for application management and secure mobile device management, offers a free on-demand webinar titled, “Squashing the Top 5 Mobile Security Threats.”
In the webinar, Fiberlink and Michael Finneran of dBrn Associates introduce five unique threats and special challenges involved in contemporary mobile security and discuss why a strategy shift may be in order for your organization.
The webinar educates organizations on how to control considerations across iOS, Android, BlackBerry (News - Alert) and Windows devices and hurdle the challenges associated with mobile device management in BYOD scenario. It also discusses strategies for securing devices and squashing threats.
With mobility gaining access in all types of organizations including federal agencies, the webinar finds more relevance. According to a recent report, many federal agencies in the United States are assessing the viability of BYOD among employees.
While several departments with less sensitive data have readily made the jump to BYOD, others, such as those involved with healthcare and law, are slower to ramp up due to escalated security concerns. The urgent need for mobility has forced several government agencies to look for the right mobile device management and mobile application management providers to ensure a smooth transition into a more mobile landscape.
An effective mobile device management solution can easily mitigate problems associated with bring your own device. These tools help CIOs, IT personnel and corporate executives better monitor use and assess the areas of policies that need to be improved. After diligently assessing the needs of the business, a company can turn to a product such as MaaS360 to get the control and scale necessary for a beneficial pursuit.
