GARL, in collaboration with the German security distributor Intellicomp, presents a compact guide on how to face the mobility challenge and adopt a mobile strategy that users can easily embrace.
Giuseppe Paterno', IT Security Architect and Director at GARL, shows how all companies can securely manage their distributed workforce on any device, with particular focus on tablets and smartphones. The objective is to help customers selecting their own secure yet affordable mobile strategy: the content itself focus on practical aspects rather than a theoretical model.
The consolidated adoption of personal mobile devices for business use, known as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), has raised concerns over the security of both company's network and privacy policies. The use of unmanaged devices started with smartphones and now is moving to tablets as well as privately owned laptops and netbooks. As the number of mobile applications increases, companies are now facing the significative amount of risks that comes from the mixed use of the devices.
Through the adoption of BYOD, users' comfort has increasingly improved, but it's important to embrace the proper tools to protect the users' credentials and company's on-line data. This the reason why a combined solution let appliances and services work together to guarantee the highest level of protection on the weakest points of the network, the ones that the Sysadmins can't control directly.
To be successful, every strategy must rely on the cooperation of the users and this means that they should receive some advantages: the proposed strategy significantly boost their everyday work and avoiding losing time. Affordable solutions like SSL VPN or the adoption of Single Sign-On system let employees enjoy the benefit of working from everywhere, as well as having a centralized identity managed system that can grant the access only to the authorized users.
