The critical question facing mobile businesses todayHow do we protect corporate data on hundreds and thousands ofmobile devices – especially if we don’t own them? • Companies deploying apps with sensitive and proprietary corporate data • > 50% of the US workforce owns their own smartphone • 61% of global enterprises support use of personal devices Data source: Gartner; Forrester
  3. 3. Securing apps and data – not just the device MAM and some MDM solutions offer a variety of basic app management capabilities, including:• Delete remotely• Device wipe and/or lock• Malware inspection But real app security requires a more focused effort … … encrypting and protecting data at the app level, not the device or OS
