Power to the People: Identify and Empower Your Mobile Workforce

One-in-two mobile owners in the US owns a smartphone, and many more own tablets. As most of these same consumers adapt their personal lifestyle to be “mobile first,” they expect their employers to be there to meet them.

Taking this on seems daunting, as IT has less ability to enforce a single standard than ever before. Not taking action, however, and ignoring this trend risks exposing corporate data to public clouds with no visibility on the part of IT.

Making the BYOD Trend Secure for Your Organization

Welcome to the dawning of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) era: More than 70 percent of organizations either have adopted or at least accepted policies that allow internal users to use products of their own choosing. With the highly utilitarian quality of the devices, three of five workers say they no longer have to go to an office to stay productive. Clearly, all of this speaks to the need for more than a mobile device management (MDM) solution, especially when it comes to file sharing.

Are "Beneficial Viruses" The Future of Mobile Security?

The BYOD movement has transformed the relationship between IT staffers and other employees in a wide range of companies. While there are benefits to BYOD, there are also headaches – and securing data on personal devices and/or securing the devices themselves is one of the biggest. While there’s an ongoing discussion about whether to manage data, apps, or devices, right now most companies are developing a strategy that has a mix of approaches.

All that could change if the mobile management industry unfolds the way Gartner analyst Ken Dulaney expects. Dulaney is an advocate of creating what he calls “beneficial viruses” that companies can layer into apps and data itself – the idea being that the data could delete itself if it becomes compromised.

Big Data: The Time is Now for Managing It and Leveraging the Advantages

There are data security implications, as well. "Mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, and BlackBerries have grown more sophisticated and are penetrating the workplace in increasing numbers, enabling access to information from anywhere, anytime on nearly any device," Paula Skokowski, chief marketing officer of Accellion, tells DBTA. "IT departments need to get ahead of the issue of how employees share information and collaborate otherwise users are left to find their own alternative solutions to share information and collaborate. Organizations are putting themselves at risk for a data breach or non-compliance, as users look to unsecure IT workarounds for sharing digital files such as dropbox-type of applications, instant messaging, thumb drives, and CDs."

Where Microsoft comes up short

As the next wave of Microsoft products aim to define how people work, there is still one area in which SharePoint 2010, Outlook 2010 and OCS come up short - the ability to move files quickly and securely.   Microsoft SharePoint, Outlook and OCS products offer collaboration and communications functionality to business users, including basic file transfer.  However for today's businesses, this basic file transfer comes up short in size and security.  SharePoint limits file transfer between internal and external recipients, Outlook best practices limits file attachments to 10MB, and OCS provides no tracking or security for file transfers.

We offer them some control over security anarchy."
