Today's mobile landscape is very much a moving target. IT managers must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the minute. In this ever-changing environment, IT staff often find themselves drowning in mobile minutiae, overwhelmed by mountains of endpoint data but unable to extract meaning from it or make business decisions based on it.
The tactical challenge of keeping infrastructure and business data secure while keeping workers productive each day takes precedence. And even then, IT managers can find themselves choosing between security and productivity as they decide how best to spend limited time and resources.
This whitepaper will guide you how to get deep visibility into relevant endpoint data within the platform, granting actionable intelligence that can have a measurable impact on your organization.
Today’s mobile landscape is very much a moving target. IT managers
must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not
thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the
minute. In this ever-changing environment, IT staff often find themselves
drowning in mobile minutiae, overwhelmed by mountains of endpoint
data but unable to extract meaning from it or make business decisions
based on it.
"Managing and securing endpoints with conventional mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobile management (EMM) solutions is time-consuming and ineffective.
For this reason, global IT leaders are turning towards unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions to consolidate their management of smartphones, tablets, laptops and IoT devices into a single management console.
To increase operational efficiency, maximize data security and deliver on their digital transformation goals, they’ll need a UEM platform that does more than just promise success. The answer is a smarter solution, built for today, that brings new opportunities, threats, and efficiency improvements to the forefront.
With Watson™, IBM® MaaS360® UEM features cognitive insights, contextual analytics, and cloud-sourced benchmarking capabilities. It helps you make sense of daily mobile details while managing your endpoints, users, apps, document, and data from one platform."

Mobility is exploding. Workers and businesses fully
expect to work anywhere, any time, from any device.
Riding right alongside this growth is the amount of data
created and consumed on mobile devices. While this
presents organizations with an attractive means of
empowering flexibility and productivity, the security risks
are real and daunting.
Unfortunately, while enterprise mobility management
tools can provide valuable administrative capabilities
and protect the organization from phone loss, accidental
data loss or weak passwords, they lack the necessary
visibility into today’s modern security risks, including
malware and other device-centric attacks
Mainframes continue to provide high business value by combining efficient transaction processing with high-volume access to critical enterprise data. Business organizations are linking mobile devices to mainframe processing and data to support digital applications and drive business transformation. In this rapidly growing scenario, the importance of providing excellent end-user experience becomes critical for business success.This analyst announcement note covers how CA Technologies is addressing the need for providing high availability and a fast response time by optimizing mainframe performance with new machine learning and analytics capabilities.
IT Security challenges are more complex than ever, as mobile devices, social technologies and cloud computing take hold. Find out how these top 2012 security trends will affect your organization-and make sure your data protection measures are ready.
Increasing staff productivity while lowering costs tied to this growing enterprise resource. A productive mobile program starts with holistic research and planning. Approaching mobility from a lifecycle standpoint will help an organization focus on optimizing each stage of the process. Having some guidance on what to expect at the different points of the mobility lifecycle is valuable for planning purposes.
Today, data is constantly flowing in and out of organizations from electrical and mechanical sensors, RFID tags, smart meters, scanners, mobile devices, vehicles, live social media, machines and other objects. Did you know that a modern plane with more than 10,000 sensors just in the wings is expected to generate more than 7 terabytes a day? And Bain predicts that by 2020 annual revenues could exceed $470 billion for the internet of things (IoT) vendors selling hardware, software and comprehensive solutions.
Analysts believe that all of this data will drive a new type of industrial revolution – one that’s driven by highly accurate, real-time analysis, alerts and actions. Increasingly, machines will automate decisions and simply notify humans with instructions. Consider the promise of the IoT, where any object can be connected to the internet and continuously send and receive data. Gartner says that by 2020, 21 billion IoT devices will be in use worldwide.

Security was once largely limited to the confines of an on-premises world, but now it must extend to the cloud, as well as a myriad of mobile devices.
Employees and companies now expect increasingly complex interactions with devices, apps, data, and even other users. As many companies struggle to keep up with traditional single-point solutions, and limited budgets, this pressure is creating security blind spots for IT.
In a world of evolving threats, it is becoming increasingly impossible to address all of these issues with an on-premises solution.
What is needed is a holistic approach to identity-driven security—one that leverages a cloud-scale intelligent security graph to help you protect your business.
In this vision whitepaper, we look into some of the challenges facing IT in the modern world and examine the possible solutions.

WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE WORK IS NO LONGER A PLACE WHERE YOU GO. It’s what you do — a dynamic activity that people expect to accomplish anywhere, anytime, on any device. Supporting today’s workforce requires a digital platform that empowers productivity and ensures security and management at scale everywhere: on site, on the road, or in the cloud.
According to IDC, by 2020, mobile workers will account for 72 percent of the U.S. workforce. And they won’t be just checking email. These workers want to be productive 24/7. That means access to data, documents, and corporate apps anywhere, anytime, on any device. Enterprises, however, are struggling to allow more workers to use additional devices from a multitude of locations.
IT professionals are rethinking remote access strategies to enable a mobile workforce. Whether they are in the office or on the road, people need secure remote access that’s simple to use, so they can be productive from anywhere. Empower your mobile workers with the right level of access to Windows® apps and data, using a solution that IT can trust.
Used by more than 100 million people worldwide in organizations of all sizes, Citrix XenApp is the proven solution for secure remote access.
Organizations are faced with providing secure authentication, authorization, and Single Sign On (SSO) access to thousands of users accessing hundreds of disparate applications. Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the user’s identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software.
Traditional IAM supports on-premises applications, but its ability to support Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications, mobile computing, and new technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is limited. Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps.
Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-
