Delivering apps into the mobile space isn’t an activity to be considered lightly. The wrong approach can inadvertently cost more while decreasing productivity. If you’ve ever struggled to interact with a poorly designed tablet or smartphone application, then you already know this pain.
Until now, marketers have been limited to two relatively uninspired options for sending direct communications to consumers on their mobile phones: SMS (a.k.a., text messaging), and text-only, imageless email on devices like the BlackBerry and Palm Treo. But with the introduction of Apple’s iPhone and competitor operating systems like Google’s Android and Palm’s Pre/Pixi now offering similarly rich user experiences, email marketers have a huge opportunity to reach consumers anywhere, any time, on their mobile devices.
As mobile devices become more common, cybercriminals see them as having huge profit potential, and aim to gain access to the user's confidential personal and financial information.

85% of us would rather give up water than mobile apps! We all know it—digital screens have officially invaded our lives. They have grown in popularity, enhancing our personal and professional lives, which includes the learning space. Do they really enhance the learning experience or are they just a distraction?
Gone is the day of the corporate-issued BlackBerry device. With its finely ingrained policies, BlackBerry was once the go-to mobile device for security-savvy enterprises. Research from IDC shows that iPhone and Android now hold over 80% of market share, with Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry completing for the third spot. The rising trend of mobility consumerization has reached a point where it is increasingly difficult for IT organizations to settle on a standard mobile device. This whitepaper will help you identify each device platform’s security features—and choose the right platform for your business.
It wasn’t long ago that being on the cutting edge of business meant having a website where customers could purchase your products, but that quickly changed. Soon, it wasn’t enough just to have an e-commerce presence; you had to offer an interactive and engaging customer experience (see Web 2.0).
Now the standard has shifted once again; in order to truly compete in the modern economy, your business needs to have a mobile storefront on smart phones and tablets. Without this mobile presence, you’ll lose business to competitors who have them.
With this new challenge comes high risk as well as great reward. With mobility, the client side of your applications is more important than ever. Instead of accessing your website from the safe confines of work or home, your customers can now perform sensitive transactions anywhere. As a result, mobile applications, and the devices and data they interact with, can now be more easily attacked.
Did you know that over 64% of mobile phone time is spent on applications? Mobile apps represent a huge opportunity for your enterprise to grow your business, but in order to benefit from them you need effective methods for developing, testing, and supporting mobile apps.

The What, Why and How to Employ NAC to Apply Guest Networking, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Endpoint Security Policies.
Many of today's endpoints are neither known nor protected. According to Gartner, enterprises are only aware of 80 percent of the devices on their network. Those 20 percent of unknown devices are inside the perimeter of the network, are unmanaged and provide users with access. They are small, varied and highly mobile, and they are loaded with their own applications, can act as WAPs, and often contain outdated firmware or are jailbroken. Even as the devices are accessing personal applications on the web, they are also accessing corporate resources such as e-mail-all from the very same unmanaged devices, which have not been vetted by the security organization. Smartphones, notebooks, netbooks, iPads, e-readers, gaming consoles and more-the list of personal devices attempting access to employer networks seems to grow every day in what's come to be known as the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) era in networking.
Mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken Website or a screen-scraped SAP application. Rather, mobile manifests a broader shift to new engagement systems. CIOs must plan now for them and empower customers, partners, and employees with context-aware apps and smart products.
