Neither here nor there?

Safeguarding cloud and mobile data security without undermining flexibility The use of mobile technologies in the enterprise has grown significantly, but complete organisational control has weakened with the rise of employees’ consumer awareness, choice, and a desire to bring your own device (BYOD). With a multiplicity of mobile options for both personal and business use, management of the key corporate asset – data – becomes critical. While the use of cloud based services and storage augments and complements mobile flexibility while giving enterprise IT some semblance of control, this too has been subject to ad hoc adoption and needs to be considered carefully to ensure precious data is correctly managed and secured. ...

What keeps your CEO up at night? The insider threat: solved with DRM

However, awareness is increasing about the threat itself and the shortcomings of ‘traditional’ security tools for mitigating the insider threat.

Getting to grips with BYOD

Since mobile devices have proliferated as consumer gadgets as well as business tools, individuals are not only more comfortable with technology, they have their own preferences and want to make their own choices for work as well as at home. This ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) idea started with mobile phones, especially once smartphones became widespread, but has also been quickly embraced for other devices, in particular tablets and, to a lesser extent, notebooks, laptops and PCs. This brings an enormous management headache for organisations, but the smart move is to recognise that the device is ultimately far less important than the applications it runs and the data it has access to. This is where attention needs to be focussed to ensure the most important enterprise assets are properly protected and secured. ...
