The Enterprise is Embracing Apps – Here’s How We’re Helping
The Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability will not affect MaaS360 customers.
Learn how your company can safeguard data in the age of Apple Picking, or theft of BYOD devices in highly populated areas.
Fiberlink CEO Jim Sheward sat down with Meet The Boss TV to discuss how smartphones, tablets, apps offer immediate benefits to businesses, and how MaaS360's cloud-based platform brings it all together.
MaaS360 is using the remaining days of spring as an excuse to branch out a little more. In fact, within the next two weeks, we're looking to double our social media connections on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
Mobile Device Security Measures What measures are you taking to address the bring your own device (BYOD) trend? Narrowing support down to specific devices may be a tempting approach. Some CIOs are saying "no" all together. As easy as each of these sound, they may be eliminated as options for CIOs moving forward. This assertion comes from a recent report by IDG News Service, highlighting a panel discussion that took place at the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The panel fervently discussed BYOD and affirmed the critical role that mobile device management (MDM) has had in assisting IT and the enterprise as a whole. "IT departments can either support [the BYOD trend] or be a receiver of the fallout," said Rob Stefanic, CIO of Sensata Technology According to Stefanic, Sensata didn't completely understand the consequences of employees connecting to the network with mobile devices when the company adopted a cloud-based platform in 2007. The current goal for IT is to reduce the impact of security breaches without limiting employee access to company data.It can be tough to find a balance between security and freedom, but the first step is knowledge. To discover the essential demands BYOD policies should meet, read The Ten Commandments of BYOD.
After each deployment, network administrators are quick to relish in the payoffs of the fusion between mobile device management (MDM) and network access control (NAC). As standalone offerings, NAC and MDM give contemporary IT the tools to solidify their network security and device management initiatives. Integrating NAC features into a MDM solution leaves IT with one of the most flexible approaches to securely support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs in the enterprise.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs have created more security and management concerns than enterprise IT bargained for. Or so it seemed. According to a recent Cisco study, businesses that have chosen to implement BYOD have been quick to learn the benefits. As it turns out, the successful implementation of mobile device management (MDM) platform is neither impossible nor impractical.
