Frost & Sullivan Information and Communication Technologies Industry Analyst Chris Rodriguez

With the explosive growth in smartphone sales in recent years, employees in every global industry increasingly utilize their personal devices for work purposes in today's connected world.  Leveraging personal devices for work purposes, a practice termed bring your own device (BYOD), holds much potential to empower employee productivity. However, mobile devices are progressively targeted by hackers, leaving compromised devices as potential entry points into enterprise networks containing sensitive and proprietary business information. This briefing will discuss the criticality of this threat and compare various solutions to the BYOD security challenge. 

Insight to gain from this webinar:

  • Emerging risks associated with BYOD practices
  • Available mobile security solutions and the potential for convergence
  • Best practices in mobile security

This presentation will focus on key trends in mobile endpoint security.  The complimentary webinar will benefit security software vendors, enterprise IT organizations, value-added resellers, security professionals, and consumers of smartphones and tablets.

"Enterprise IT organizations now face tremendous pressure to enable employees to access the corporate network and files from their own personal devices," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Chris Rodriguez. "Considering their seemingly omnipresent nature, fast data connections, and powerful hardware and operating systems, these devices represent prime targets for hackers. Enterprise organizations know they must take action, but are challenged to find a balance between usability, accessibility and security."
