Securing the Mobile Workforce

As enterprise IT is increasingly being delivered by mobile computing platforms, the nature of security threats, as well as the manner in which security is delivered is changing. Mobility pushes computing well beyond the traditional network perimeter meaning not only are new security paradigms are required to protect devices and data from direct threats, but the network itself from threats leveraged through those devices. While traditional security measures aren’t dead, by themselves they are certainly no longer sufficient, and IT departments must invest in new technologies, new processes, and new approaches to ensure sufficient levels of enterprise protection. 

 Takeaways: 
  • Understand the nature and magnitude of the new threat landscape 
  • Discover the tools and techniques best suited to address these new threats 
  • Learn how to best protect your business in an ever more connected world

Implementing Effective Enterprise Mobility Management

Though Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) has become the de facto mobile computing security platform, offering the ability to control devices and contain critical data, only 50% of organizations have deployed an EMM platform. Addressing this shortcoming will only become increasingly important as mobility becomes the de facto enterprise computing platform, but not all EMM platforms are equal, nor are the needs of individual adopters. How then should the enterprise make the best of us of the selected tool, ensuring the right level of protection while avoiding the infringement of individual rights? The key to efficient and effective deployment is balancing the protection you need, the capabilities of the tool selected, and the demands to be placed on mobile users.

Takeaways:

  • Discover the costs and benefits and of EMM deployment
  • Determine the capabilities that define the best EMM platforms
  • Learn about common deployment patterns; what works and what doesn’t

Best-of-Breed or Integrated: Principles in Security Architecture Design

When it comes to implementing enterprise security capabilities there are two schools of thought: use best-of-breed point solutions, or go with all-round integrated and consolidated platforms. Pros and cons abound for either approach relating to levels of protection, integration, and administrative overhead but the increasing complexity of security infrastructure is showing a winning approach. When integrated platforms are composed of best-of-breed solutions themselves however, we get a win-win situation where the only ones to lose are the bad guys. Understanding how best-of-breed solutions can integrate into consolidated platforms to deliver security where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts is essential for enterprise success.

Takeaways:

  • The management burden of best-of-breed outweighs performance benefits
  • Consolidated platforms can lead to feature overlap and unnecessary cost
  • Planning is required to maximize coverage but minimize effort and spend
