Whether you were at the forefront of the mobility era or are just now catching up—or, most likely, somewhere in between—you’ve already experienced first-hand the business impact of ubiquitous smartphones and tablets. From employees to customers, mobile devices spawned an explosion in new applications, data, support needs, security concerns, and other issues. They’ve reset expectations for organizational speed and flexibility. They’ve dramatically increased the surface area for potential security attacks. All this, and the mobile era is still just in its infancy.
Maintain visibility and control, regardless of device or OS. The consumerisation of enterprise information technology is one of the most significant security concerns today. Gartner's Analyst Ken Delaney explains the impact of consumerisation on enterprise IT.

Today more than ever, business wins depend on teamwork. And the teams that make things happen are bigger, more diverse, and more distributed than ever. People are working at home, in coffee shops, and on the road. They span multiple time zones. They use every imaginable device, relying heavily on their mobile phones. They grapple with deadlines because their tools don’t connect. With so much to manage, people are challenged to be truly present and focused in the moment. To make the most of each opportunity and maintain business momentum, they need tools that allow them to work intuitively. Effortlessly. That fade into the background, leaving them free to keep focused, stay engaged, get inspired, innovate. That allow them to connect as if they were in person, when they’re not.

Millions of new smart phones continue to ship every month, and many of them find their way into businesses to help workers do their jobs in innovative new ways. However, many of these same phones will be replaced within a year because they are not durable enough to work reliably in new enterprise work environments. In this white paper, learn why emerging enterprise applications require ruggedness and reliability.
How can your business support new identity-defined workspaces across a variety of users — retail store associates checking inventory on a PC and a smartphone, hospital clinicians entering test results into a mobile workstation and an iPad, or financial advisors placing trades from Android devices and laptops?
The answer is the digital workspace.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
Effectively supporting these new business demands has become more complex and challenging. The increased use of mobile devices alone is driving exponential growth in transaction volumes.
A customer pushes a button on his or her cell phone, for example, to check a bank balance. That single transaction triggers a cascade of transactions as the request is validated and data is accessed, retrieved and then sent back to the customer.
The digital economy is dramatically changing how your customers buy products and services, and how they interact with your business. As customers increasingly use multiple devices (including
Smartphones) to make their purchases, they expect fast, consistent and highly secure experiences – and you need to deliver. At the same time, you should remain vigilant about fraud. Effective fraud management is critical, not only for reducing risk, but also for accepting more good customer orders, improving customer engagement, controlling costs and achieving competitive advantage.
Today all businesses battle with unprecedented competitive pressures. In order to succeed—or even survive—
they must rapidly adapt to constantly changing environments, in every industry and sector. What does this
mean for IT leaders? Transformation, on all fronts.
The very factors driving digital transformation in businesses are also pressuring IT organizations to transform.
Customer expectations have increased. Companies live and die by the applications they provide to their customers
and employees. A smartphone is the modern bank branch. The palm of your hand is replacing traditional brick-and-mortar
stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
they want it, customers go elsewhere.

Laptops, smartphones, and other mobile devices; high-bandwidth wireless networks; and cloud-based computing services have proven to be among the most impactful of these advances, collectively untethering workers from office environments and fundamentally altering work behaviors. employees today work anytime, anywhere while accessing applications and data that reside on company servers and in the cloud.

The cloud – and more specifically, cloud communications – is the source of the transformation, which has fundamentally changed the IT landscape. Some IT pros have embraced it. Some are working on migrating to the cloud over time. And others, through choice or necessity, are sticking with a premises-based approach.
Read on to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.

Mobility is exploding. Workers and businesses fully
expect to work anywhere, any time, from any device.
Riding right alongside this growth is the amount of data
created and consumed on mobile devices. While this
presents organizations with an attractive means of
empowering flexibility and productivity, the security risks
are real and daunting.

tools can provide valuable administrative capabilities
and protect the organization from phone loss, accidental
data loss or weak passwords, they lack the necessary
visibility into today’s modern security risks, including
malware and other device-centric attacks
In a new video, security analyst Rich Mogull discusses mobile data protection topics and addresses many issues, including, the latest trends in mobile security, mobile device management, and mobile data protection.
