If you’ve noticed more employees accessing the corporate network using their personally owned mobile devices, you’re not alone. Many employees are boosting their productivity by using their smartphones and tablets at work.
Gone are the days of corporate IT departments dictating the types of mobile devices that could access the network. Bring your own device (BYOD) policies, while increasing employee satisfaction and productivity, are straining corporate networks.
This white paper describes the limitations of legacy networks, especially for supporting BYOD. Understanding these limitations can pave the way for a successful BYOD management policy for campus and branch networks.
Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors
With more Internet-connected mobile devices than people in the world in 2013, IT must provide seamless connectivity to every class of user — employees, contractors, guests and even customers — appropriate to their role and type of device. Mobility in the workplace isn’t just for user benefit and productivity. The migration to mobility begets several IT benefits.
Le lieu de travail nouvelle génération repose sur la mobilité. À l’heure où le nombre d’appareils mobiles connectés à Internet dépasse la population mondiale, il est essentiel que les services informatiques soient en mesure d’offrir à chaque catégorie d’utilisateurs (employés, entrepreneurs, invités et clients) une connectivité fluide et adaptée à leurs besoins et types d’équipement. Outre les atouts évidents pour les utilisateurs et l’effet bénéfique sur la productivité, la migration vers la mobilité est source de nombreux avantages pour les services informatiques.

In a BYOD world, companies can choose to secure and manage the entire mobile device user pool or secure portions of that community. Either way, steps must be taken to prevent unauthorized access to network resources and data loss. Enterprises should consider solutions that allow policies to be applied based on user, device, network, application, and data leakage risks.
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.
A team approach and careful consideration of operational and security issues will pave the way for effective guidance. The drivers are many, but big draws include the potential for greater productivity — giving people anywhere, anytime access to information via devices they’re comfortable with.
"As the rapid rise in the number of mobile devices and users creates an explosion in data and virtual machine instances, datacenter transformation becomes imperative for many enterprises. It is essential enterprises move to consolidate resources and cut both capital and operating costs while still providing support for distributed applications.
This brief white paper delves into a Q&A with Eric Sheppard, research director of IDC’s Storage Software program, on integrated systems and whether you should buy compute, network, and storage resources together. Read on as you will discover:

Virtualization, cloud computing, and wireless technology are fundamentally changing enterprise computing, providing revolutionary gains in productivity and cost savings. Powerful enterprise applications can now be delivered to almost any device, anywhere, at any time.
Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, enable increasing numbers of employees to work "anywhere, anytime."The security of enterprise data is a key concern, particularly on mobile devices that are easily lost or stolen. The security risk is further heightened by the proliferation of employee-owned mobile devices in many enterprises. Employees will almost always take the path of least resistance in leveraging mobile devices for business purposes, which may lead to unsafe computing practices. A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
Historically in the enterprise, Macs have been managed separately from iOS devices in separate consoles, sometimes by different groups within IT. Traditional domain-joined management posed several problems for today’s modern enterprise. Nowadays, managing Macs like mobile devices means they can be configured over the air, without ever having to be domain-joined. That’s a major plus for global organizations, remote workers and companies who use contractors or freelancers. Unifying parallel device environments enables streamlined oversight, management and distribution of content across Macs and iOS devices.
With AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management, IT can implement a BYOD program and policy for all device types, ensuring personal information remains private. IT has a consistent management experience for all device types and operating systems, enabling a single-pane-of-glass view of all endpoints in an enterprise.
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.
