Traditional remote access technologies—like VPNs, proxies,and remote desktops—provide access in much the same way they did 20 years ago. However, new and growing business realities—like a growing mobile and distributed workforce—are forcing enterprises to take a different approach to address the complexity and security challenges that traditional access technologies present. Read this whitepaper to learn 5 key reasons why it’s time for enterprises to adopt a new remote access model.
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. It’s now so integrated into IT and infrastructures that, for many companies, it’s 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.

As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.
Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.

They say content is king. But if your content isn’t protected, it’s a king with no clothes.
The proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace, and the availability of cloud services designed for consumers, can lead to improper sharing of corporate data. Information that leaves your firewalls can live forever, and without adequate protection, can end up in the wrong hands.
This report by Ovum takes a look at the challenges of information security and explores how a new generation of Information Rights Management (IRM) technology directly addresses the most critical concerns.
Key topics include:
• The threat posed by Dropbox and other consumer-grade FSS providers
• The need for lifetime control of information and content
• The ability to perform audits, and locate files, anywhere, and who accessed them
• How next-generation IRM technology is available to add a new layer of security to every file

It's no secret that mobile technology has revolutionized the way consumers conduct their lives. Mobile technology has become ubiquitous, influencing the business workplace and workforce. Last year, IDC predicted that 75% of the US and nearly 40% of the global workforce would be mobile and signs indicate that the rate of mobile growth is only being accelerated by the advancement of cloud technology, improved security, and more reliable network access.
Part of a strong foundation for cloud-first, mobile-first IT includes supporting BYOD. BYOD can improve end user satisfaction and enable employees to work anywhere from any device. To really get these benefits though, the end-user experience must provide seamless access to the applications end-users want and need. Accomplishing this starts with extending app provisioning to mobile devices, and automatically deprovisioning mobile access as part of the identity lifecycle. For the best user experience, you’ll want automatic configuration of native mobile applications with mobile SSO, security settings and app settings like usernames, URLs and tenant IDs.
Traditional remote access technologies were created twenty-years ago, before businesses were distributed, mobile, and users of cloud. View this slideshare to learn 3 reasons why now is the time for a new remote access model.
Traditional remote access solutions were designed for business models of twenty years ago, but today they are distributed, mobile, and have many remote and third-party users. Read this paper to learn about a fundamentally new way to provide simple, secure remote access.

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. For companies at this stage of
mobility, security is the next critical layer. As Gartner states,
“It is becoming increasingly important that security leaders

The adoption of mobile in the enterprise space is accelerating. Users of mobile devices choose what applications they want to use, but it is up to the enterprise to predict the data that they will be accessing. With that change, comes a new spectrum of risk that CISOs must consider.

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.

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.

Some of the biggest challenges IT teams face today stem from data loss and security risks arising from the unauthorized use of personal file sharing services by employees for business purposes. Personal file sharing services invite data leakage and compliance violations by allowing files being shared to escape beyond the visibility and control of IT. At the same time, these services meet the essential need of today’s mobile workforce to be able to access and share data wherever people work. Learn how enterprise-ready file sharing solutions exceed employee needs while securing and mobilizing business data.
Mobile devices are ubiquitous and end users keep tend to keep them close at hand. This represents both an opportunity and a challenge with regard to security and authentication.

There is also a growing challenge to provide user convenient authentication directly from mobile devices. This eBook will discuss these use cases and how they fit into your overall mobile authentication strategy.
