BYOD Security & Management: ...

BYOD Security & Management:
Mobile Containerization provides a way to separate work from play on mobile devices. In our previous webinar we reviewed the pros and cons of mobile containers for deploying hybrid apps, but mobile containers serve other useful purposes as well. In this webinar we'll discuss the utility of mobile containers for managing devices and securing data, especially relevant for BYOD environments.

Highlights:
- What is a mobile app "container?"
- What are the different uses for mobile app containers?
- How can you protect corporate data while respecting user's privacy on their own devices?
- What are the trade-offs in managing mobile apps and devices across the enterprise?

  • On the positive side of the ledger, the enterprise mobility market matured (or exploded) in 2012. It came out of infancy and entered adolescence in certain respects. IT got much more involved – or was forced to get involved – which is great for Antenna as our core value has always resonated with the more technology-minded professionalsNative became sexy again, and enthusiasm for mobile web/HTML5/etc. became much more realistic as a result of a few tech juggernauts (e.g., Facebook) falling short of user expectations with their mobile web appsBut most importantly – what REALLY ignited this market – was the BYOD phenomenon. Unfortunately, Antenna and others of our MADP ilk were the immediate benefactors of this market tipping point. Instead, MDM players like A/W, Mobile Iron, Good, and others started printing money as IT groups began buying licenses en masse in a very knee-jerk manner for fear they would lose control (or possibly their jobs) if they didn’t get in front of this trend that had a life of its own.One the negative side of the ledger, while it’s hard to prove … anecdotally … the global economic crisis has certainly had in impact of buying patterns and investments in transformative technologies.But, what really affected us and caught us somewhat flat-footed was the wide use, adoption, implementation of free/open development toolsets. It put a spotlight on the fact that developers hold the keys in many respects and prefer to use the likes of Sencha, Jquery Mobile, PhoneGap to get to market quickly and inexpensively.
  • So if SECURITY is the main difference, what are companies doing to protect themselves? With all the talk about BYOD and everybody having a smartphone and everybody accessing company data from their personal devices there’s definitely opportunity for chaos and confusion and frustration. But IT departments and mobile software vendors and app developers have actually come up with some pretty clever solutions to the security challenge.This slide represents not just three different alternatives to mobile security, but almost a timeline of how security services have evolved and will probably continue to evolve.In the old days, like 5 or 6 years ago, people that use smart mobile devices for work probably got their device from their employer. And it was designated a company asset, like your laptop, and it was completely controlled by the IT department. So, you got your Windows Mobile device or your BlackBerry and, sure, you could make a personal phone call once in a while, but you didn’t have a lot of control over the software loaded on the device itself. And this gave IT a lot of control and peace of mind.But as BYOD became more popular and people started bringing their own smartphones and tablets to work, companies had to find a way to have control over some apps while not intruding on the apps that belong to the device owner, or employee. And so you see some creative solutions like separate spaces on the same device, or apps wrapped in a secure container.BlackBerry recently released BlackBerry 10 and one of the really compelling features is something called BlackBerry Balance ….
