Preparing your Enterprise for the Generation Y: BYOD & Mobile Device Management

  • LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, September 18, 2012 TIME: 16:00 CEST, 10am EDT, 14:00 GMT
Upcoming Webinars

A plethora of mobile devices are invading the enterprise at incredible speed, raising issues in areas like access control, policy enforcement, security of confidential data on users’ devices, and many others. Practices of “bring your own device,” (BYOD) and “company owned, personally enabled,” (COPE) are trying to describe methods of mitigating the risks involved. In this training, KuppingerCole Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger will help IT professionals to find their best way through the myriad of recommendations and solutions related to this issue, and implement the right corporate policies and security tactics.

BYOD is one of the hot topics for any IT organization today. It is not a trend, it is a fundamental shift. And it is not only about smartphones and tablets, but also about other types of devices from traditional PCs in the home office to notebooks business partners want to use within your network. There are no signs that IT ever will be able to change that shift. Thus it is about focusing on how to stay in control. And it’s about staying in control of the corporate information, not in control of the devices. The simple facts that there are too many different devices with too many different operating systems and too much change on one hand and that these devices aren’t always owned by the organization, thus limiting control from the legal perspective, requires another paradigm shift: The shift from device-centric security to information-centric security and, to some degree, network-centric security in the sense of “securing the pipes”. However, the latter is more complex than it sounds in a world where we are facing much more different types of connections and many things remain in the Cloud, not even touching the corporate IT environment.

This webinar will provide you with information on how to really stay in control. It looks at different technical approaches from MDM (Mobile Device Management) to Desktop Virtualization and Information Rights Management. It analyzes whether, when, and how these technologies might help you in securing the corporate information in a BYOD environment. It provides insight in how to deal with that shift – effective and efficient.

Managing Cyber Risk in a Hybrid Multi-Cloud IT Environment

Today’s IT environments blend applications and services from multiple public cloud networks, private clouds and on-prem networks, making it difficult to view and inventory assets deployed across complex hybrid networks, and keep track of the security risks. Organizations need to find a way to improve visibility, identify and prioritize risks, and maintain cyber resiliency.
