Bring your own device (BYOD) or bring your own phone (BYOP) is making significant inroads in corporate environments. One of the vexing problems of BYOD is how to secure corporate data when it has been loaded on to a device that is not part of corporate infrastructure. Another problem is that organizations might be forced to support apps for many phone platforms.
Running the app in the cloud will keep the sensitive corporate data in the corporate cloud rather than in the employees device. An app Android app running in the cloud can be accessed on a wide array of devices and platforms, mobile and fixed. This will provide the “write once, run anywhere” capability of Java fame.
Our technology allows the app to run in the cloud thereby keeping the sensitive corporate data in the corporate cloud rather than in the employee’s device. Android apps running in the cloud can be accessed on a wide array of devices and platforms, both mobile and fixed, providing true “write once, run anywhere” capability.

    • 1. The Challenge of Mobile Devices in the Enterprise by Joel Isaacson Ascender Technologies Ltd. Copyright 2014 Joel Isaacson joel@ascender.com
    • 2. Mobile in the Enterprise Challenges ● ● Mobile platforms are indispensable in the Enterprise. Challenges that complicate their adaption: – Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) – Enterprise security – Mobile device management Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 3. Mobile in the Enterprise BYOD: Advantages ● ● ● BYOD: Employees use personal smartphones, tablets, PCs in the workplace. Employees' personal devices access company information and applications. BYOD: a win-win situation for employees and the Enterprise. – Employees can use devices of their own choosing and don’t need to carry multiple devices; – Corporations reduce expenditure on devices. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 4. Mobile in the Enterprise BYOD: Difficulties ● ● ● ● By its very nature, BYOD leads to a diverse collection of devices in the Enterprise: laptops, smartphones and tablets. Support for such a large number of devices is difficult. Writing apps for such a diverse group of devices is difficult. HTML5 should help to solve the BYOD diversity problem, but it doesn't totally replace native apps. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 5. Mobile in the Enterprise Security ● ● Mobile devices play a vital role in employeecorporate network interaction. Inherent security risks: – Insecure data transmission. – Stolen, lost, or compromised devices. – Use of public and open hotspots. – Malware and viruses. – Corporate policy enforcement. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 6. Mobile Device Management MDM ● ● MDM deals with remotely deploying, securing, monitoring, integrating and managing mobile devices, into the corporate network. Goal of MDM: to provide controlled access to corporate assets, while simultaneously protecting the corporate network from incursions. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 7. Mobile Device Management Difficulties ● ● ● Physical access: The device is physically outside of corporate control which poses a security risk. BYOD: Many types of devices need to be managed. Apps: Not all MDM software is compatible with all apps; thus, app conversion may be necessary. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 8. Ascender Technologies' Cloud Based Android Apps ● ● ● Ascender Technologies Ltd. has pioneered technologies that enable Android apps to be run in the cloud, yielding high performance graphics while using low network bandwidth. These techniques allow the majority of current Android apps to be run in the cloud without modification. Ascender's technology provides a practical solution to security concerns of BYOD in the Enterprise. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 9. Ascender Technologies Solution to BYOD Issues ● Run Android apps in the cloud – – ● Standard Android apps can be used unmodified. Many Android programmers available. Android apps viewable on: – Smartphones: IOS, Windows Phone, Android. – Tablets: Windows, IOS, Android. – Laptops and PCs: Windows, OS X, Linux. – Browsers via HTML5 and WebGL. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 10. Ascender Technologies' Solution to BYOD issues ● ● ● ● Provides “write once run everywhere” via a thin client. Only one viewer must be written for each client platform. Viewer remotely displays Android apps. Changes the dynamics of BYOD by allowing employees to bring a mobile phone of their choice rather than choosing from supported popular platforms. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 11. Ascender Technologies' Solution to Enterprise Security ● ● ● App execution is purely cloud-based and therefore intrinsically more secure than clientbased or hybrid client-cloud solutions. The client viewer preserves no state on the remote device. All interaction with the Enterprise is via the client viewer which has only one communication channel that must be secured. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
    • 12. Ascender Technologies' Solution to MDM Mobile Device Management issues are solved. ● ● ● No need for the Enterprise to manage remote devices. Employees bring their own devices and are responsible for maintenance. Interaction of the mobile device with the Enterprise is via the client viewer app which is managed from the Enterprise cloud. Ascender Technologies Ltd Chrome OS and Android
