People are now accessing data in more places, often over untrusted networks, and often on personally owned devices where personal and business apps live side by side. All of this means a significantly increased potential for loss or theft. IT and security teams are left scrambling to protect sensitive information wherever and however it’s stored and used. Added to that is the need for maintaining compliance and meeting regulatory standards.
Protect data and ensure compliance through a comprehensive enterprise mobile security approach that ensures technology and mobility strategy work together to seamlessly deliver an unparalleled user experience and comprehensive coverage.
Endpoint security has become a major issue for enterprise IT as business mobility, bring-your-own device (BYOD) and a multi-party workforce render traditional perimeter-based protection ineffective. Mobile devices containing sensitive business data can all too easily be lost or stolen.
Centralized control and contextual awareness make it simpler to safeguard information and manage risk on any device people use, over any network, wherever they work. Complementary technologies for app, data, device and network security provide the right level of protection in any scenario without impeding productivity or degrading user experience.
It’s easy to lose sight of the real goal: not ultimately to protect the device itself, a replaceable commodity, but to ensure that mobile usage doesn’t put business apps and data at risk.
The key is to focus on protecting the apps and data that power mobile productivity, using context-aware policies to allow the appropriate levels of access and usage for each particular device and situation. To do this, IT needs granular control over access and usage of apps and data based on the specific context in which the user is working—location, device and network—to maintain security without impeding productivity.
We've used Citrix to implement security controls and prevent breaches from occurring. Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenMobile have all been critical in how we deliver essential applications or services while maintaining a very high level of security. We started by enabling our clinicians to walk around the hospital and still get right back into their applications, effectively bringing their desktops with them wherever they were in the hospital. Then we gave them the ability to do that anywhere—on their home PC or iPad, or whatever device they have.
