There is a very real concern about corporate data breaches via employee mobile devices, whether they are personal devices or company-owned. People carry their mobile devices everywhere with them, and sometimes lose them to carelessness or theft. Passwords aren’t enough to protect the data these devices hold.

As an enterprise, you cannot ignore mobile, which has become a major factor in company connectivity. Nor can you be reactive, concentrating on individual mobile devices while leaving gaps in server-side mobile security. In order to protect your company, your data, and your users, your mobile device management (MDM) solution needs tools to proactively monitor, control, and protect the enterprise from front end to back. The goal is to stop threats before they happen.

Framework of Great Mobile Security for Apps

Effective enterprise mobile security requires a multifaceted framework that includes:

  • Data security
  • Network security
  • Physical security
  • Product development security
  • User education and training on best practices

Enterprises must address all aspects of security, not just one or two. The best MDM solution will integrate throughout the layers of the mobile experience, creating a series of checks and balances to guard against data loss and security breaches from every angle. Many enterprises do not have the expertise or in-house resources to ensure effective mobile security on every level.

If that is the case at your organization, and mobile security is indeed a priority, you should strongly consider bringing in a partner that is an expert in enterprise mobile security. Look for one with a strong portfolio of work with other enterprise companies and a track record of successful mobile security implementation.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong
    none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am
    worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things
    about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
