The transformation of mobile solutions has been one of the more dramatic in the history of technology. With the number and variety of mobile devices used to conduct business growing at an exponential rate, the need for robust security could not be more pronounced. For the enterprise, the correct mobile strategy can boost profits and productivity and improve customer relations and service. However, modern mobile platforms are different and are vulnerable to an increased level and a greater variety of security risks than the established world of IT. These threats are not specific to mobile security, but mobility itself brings additional risks. Creating the right security approach will help enterprises to address these threats while taking advantage of the huge benefits mobile enablement offers.
There are three main targets for threats - information, identity, and availability. Mobile devices are personal and used for both private and business productivity even more in the context of a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) company scenario. Devices typically store valuable and often sensitive information; keeping that information secure is vital. The consequences of a malicious third party gaining access to personal financial information, for example, could be disastrous and irreparable. With mobile devices gathering personal, often photographic, information about where the owner lives, works, and spends his or her leisure time, the consequences of a mobile device getting into the wrong hands could be truly catastrophic. And with devices being used for work and leisure, the possibility of sensitive business information getting into the wrong hands could have much, much wider - and potentially massive - implications.
The line between the personal computers and mobile devices has already blurred. While the mobile hardware race is in full swing, so too is the battle among mobile ISVs, who aim to be the primary provider for an increasingly broad range of mobile solutions for today's enterprise. Mobile device deployments continue to expand in enterprise environments and are being integrated into workers' daily activities in companies of all sizes. This trend is making mobile IT infrastructure investments for mobile management and security a priority for CIOs, CISOs, and IT leaders. Protecting data on a server is one thing, but protecting data in motion is another. The increasing use of mobile devices in the enterprise has us carrying around (and potentially exposing) more information than ever. A typical mobile device is likely to contain both personal and work-related data including emails, email attachments, voice mails, text messages, and private corporate data. Every mobile-enabled worker is holding a gateway into the enterprise network and access to sensitive and/or confidential data. Safeguarding intellectual property and business information from theft and misuse is a critical management issue, making security a core business function, regardless of whether a user is in the C-suite or on the lowest rung on the corporate ladder.
The cost of data breaches can be enormous, not only in dollars but also in lost time, productivity, and an overall feeling of organizational well-being. These trends make crafting and implementing comprehensive mobile policies critical for sustainable and effective mobile enablement.
