How to protect against mobile malware.
Mobility is transforming enterprises at an unprecedented rate with the continued proliferation of smart devices, explosive development of mobile apps and increased access to work files. Employees are empowered by their organizations to be more productive at virtually any time and from anywhere, adopting policies for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and even allowing the use of personal apps for work-related activities.
However, organizations have not kept pace with this mobility explosion by deploying the enterprise-grade security needed to protect their sensitive information. Hackers and thieves are seizing on this opportunity to penetrate networks and acquire sensitive work data from mobile endpoints. IT and Security leaders need a modern and robust security solution to proactively detect, analyze and remediate these mobile threats.

The modern organization has recognized the need to
embrace mobile devices in the workplace. Some have fully
implemented a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program,
while some have adopted a hybrid model of corporateowned
and personally-enabled (COPE) devices. Many
companies then choose to deploy an Enterprise Mobility
Management (EMM) or Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solution to enable some control of the mobile devices
that access corporate data.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.
With smartphones and tablets now standard-issue office gear,workers fully expect to have mobile access to critical data and business applications wherever and whenever the need arises.And itís not just the average field worker or sales rep who stands to benefit from remote access. An IDG survey found that 61% of the executive managers saw value in accessing critical business data while offline via their mobile devices. This IDG whitepaper proves that offline access is the key to unlocking mobilityís promise.
The increase in mobile devices and cloud applications has changed everything, from where we work, to how we communicate, collaborate, and store information. A new approach to security is needed.
The cloud is no longer a trend or a movement. Itís now so integrated into IT and infrastructures that, for many companies, itís simply how business is done. The availability of mobile devices and cloud services has redefined how and where people work. Applications and servers are moving to the cloud faster than ever to take advantage of cost savings, scalability, and accessibility.

Data is multiplying rapidly in quantity and variety for enterprises of all kinds. In multicloud environments, a range of data sources is exponentially increasing the stream of incoming information, from the Internet of Things and social media, to mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking. While organizations are readily investing in artificial intelligence (AI), most havenít done due diligence to understand their data or ensure the quality of data needed to benefit from AI solutions. In many organizations, their data is inaccessible, unreliable, or non-compliant with data privacy and protection rules.
