Android and iOS mobile devices— including smartphones, tablets and everything in between—have transformed enterprise computing, providing new mobility and flexibility for people and IT. At the same time, they compound the challenge of maintaining effective security and privacy of business information. Read on and attend our upcoming webinar to get best practices on how IT can securely embrace mobility, consumer devices and BYOD.
Instead of seeking to protect all the information in the enterprise, including non-sensitive public data, IT should focus on protecting what really matters, sensitive business information like intellectual property and trade secrets, as well as, regulated personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI) and payment card industry (PCI) information. This approach calls for the mapping of security measures to user roles and the selective use of a broad range of methods to secure access, control usage, prevent data exfiltration and guard against device tampering—without interfering with data availability. Enterprise mobility management plays a central role in this strategy, with capabilities centered on devices, operating systems, networks, applications, data and policy—but it’s equally critical to understand the role of the mobile OS itself.
You can get a glimpse into the unique security issues and features of each of the major mobile OS platforms, Android and iOS, in some of my previous blogs. Today, I want to invite you to join Kurt Roemer, Citrix chief security strategist, and myself as we present best practices to maintain control over Android and iOS tablets and smartphones.
