Countless organizations are deploying digital workspace solutions to meet the demands of today’s mobile end users and the IT administrators that support them. The goal is to empower users to work from anywhere, on any device—mobile or laptop—at any time. However, architecting a secure, seamless, scalable digital workspace solution is not necessarily easy, which is where this paper helps.
When developing your digital workspace, it is important to keep five key considerations in mind, both on the front end and the back end of your environment:
Seamless, secure end-user access to applications and files
Easy-to-use enterprise app store
Fully integrated infrastructure stack
Agnostic platform with a broad ecosystem
Download this white paper to see how to approach these major considerations, with detailed strategies, and provide recommendations for effectively addressing each one.
Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?

Before organizations can address their bot challenges, they need the ability to detect the many types of bots interacting with their websites and web applications on a daily basis. Bots come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from simple scripts to sophisticated automation tools, and continuously evolve over time. As detection technologies improve, so too do the technologies available to bot operators as they update their bots to evade the latest detection mechanisms. When evaluating a bot management solution, organizations should consider its detection technologies and their effectiveness against the current and future bot landscape, while maintaining the lowest possible level of false positives and negatives.
Which bot management solution is right for you?
Bots are responsible for 30% to 70% of website traffic. They range from good to middling to bad, and from simple to sophisticated. Many bot management vendors say they can solve your bot problem. But can they really?
This e-book provides guidance on how to evaluate bot management solutions and understand what the differences mean for you and your customers. We cover the top 10 things to consider when selecting a bot management solution, from accuracy and API protection to flexibility and resilience over time.

Protecting confidential data while keeping mobile users productive.
The terms Data Leak Prevention (DLP) and Container are
beginning to dominate the mobile management
conversation. Over the past few years great strides have been
made in providing the tools and solutions that offer
management and security for mobile devices; both for devices
the enterprise owns and those that employees own.
While these solutions generally meet the need to secure the
device, they have been lacking in some of the more
sophisticated security aspects that are commonplace in laptop
and distributed network deployments. Specifically lacking are
the robust DLP controls common in laptop management
Enterprise mobility management suites enable organizations to integrate and manage mobile devices in their IT infrastructures. End-user computing leaders must act amid rapid market changes to reach both short-term and long-term enterprise mobility objectives.
UEM is not limited to PCs, tablets and smartphones. Smart devices, broadly grouped as part of the IoT, will increasingly become included in UEM. Devices such as Apple TVs, printers and smartwatches are identifiable examples of IoT devices managed by EMM tools. However, not all IoT objects will fall under the realm of EMM tools. Some devices may be managed directly by manufacturers. Other types of devices will have proprietary management tools. And many devices will not need to be managed at all. However, it is clear that the diversity and number of devices will continue to grow, and IT organizations must be ready.
