What is Mobility

It is estimated by the International Telecommunication Union that the total number of mobile devices in the world has already exceeded the number of people. Mobile devices are becoming increasingly advanced as well. In fact, modern smartphones are as powerful as desktop computers, but “know” much more about their owners: current and past location, contents of their private text messages, photos and other sensitive information, as well as their online banking credentials and other financial data. They are also always connected to the Internet and thus are especially vulnerable to hacking and malware exploits.

Growing adoption of cloud services has brought its own share of privacy concerns: more and more sensitive data is now managed by third parties, so users are losing visibility and control over their information. However, it is social computing that has made the most profound impact on our society. Ultimately, it has led to a significant erosion of public expectation of privacy and made nearly impossible to undo accidental sharing of private information. Some people have gone as far as to claim that privacy is no longer relevant. This, of course, cannot be further from reality: various studies clearly indicate that users value their privacy and strongly object to sharing of their personal data with third parties without consent. However, many users still do not have a clear understanding as to what extent mobile devices can affect their privacy.

Creating Secure and Unified Next Generation Workspaces

A key challenge in every organization is making sure that the right tools are available, in the right place, at the right time, for the right people. The continual on and off boarding of large groups of employees, external workforces or partners creates increased pressure on administrative teams within an organization. An overall change towards diverse end-user devices, both corporate and privately owned, adds a new dimension of complexity, while compliance and security requirements challenge IT, CISOs and executive management.

Feb 18, 2014: Managing Identities and Access to Information for Cloud, Mobile and Social Computing
