Security Challenges

Posted Apr 9, 2013 12:56:03 PM by DecisionPoint Team & filed under

The adoption of BYOD is occurring in every market segment by small and large organizations alike. This is the result of businesses having concluded that their employees are more productive and accessible when they can use their own mobile device to perform work related activities. However, this productivity and access may lead to undesired security challenges. Exposing your network, servers and business applications to the outside world invites hackers, competitors and others to wreak havoc. The most logical approach is to extend your existing security policies to this new mobile end point. But how? Fortunately there is an expanding industry of software tools that are designed to specifically address the security issues related to mobile devices. These tools are continually evolving in functionality and address the majority if not all of your security challenges including:

  • Device lock down
  • Data encryption
  • Secure user access
  • Wireless network policies
  • Internet access
  • Application installation
  • Device wipe
  • And many others
