Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
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.
Provisioning devices to users should be simply an extension of the foundational identity lifecycle management system. And, mobility management should enable IT teams to implement simple policies to enable and secure access from mobile.

Web and mobile applications are now top attack vectors for cyber attackers, accounting for more than a third of data breaches. As a result, securing the application layer has now become a high priority for enterprises. Enterprise application security testing solutions for Web, native, cloud and mobile applications are key to this strategy.
In the latest Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, Veracode has been positioned as a Leader for the third year in a row based on our completeness of vision and ability to execute in the AST market.

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.
The VMware 2016 State of the Digital Workspace Report was performed in July 2016 and is a study that examined digital workspace adoption among global organizations across industries. Data represents a survey of 1,263 business decision makers (BDMs) and IT influencers to examine the worldwide progress in transitioning from the client-server era to the mobile-cloud era.
Respondents acknowledged that game-changing IT relies on organizations adopting a digital workspace that includes security and identify management as vital components. With realistic prospects of achieving astounding return on investment (ROI), even businesses that cited obstacles to adoption may want to consider taking another look at business mobility initiatives.
The mobile-cloud era is here. It is not merely about delivering apps; it is about simplifying processes so you can accomplish more. The mobile-cloud era is redefining productivity by enabling workflows through the key foundations of identity and contextual experiences, mobile collaboration, united endpoint management and security, and windows apps and desktops.
Today people work primarily from mobile sources and expect a strikingly continuous experience across all their devices, regardless of which device they select to best accomplish any given task. Once access is established, organizations are looking to transform processes to mobile so they can increase efficiency and workflows for end users, thereby driving productivity to the next level.

An IBM white paper describing the infrastructure implications of today’s converging technology forces and the software defined, next-generation data center transformation vital to capitalizing on them.
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.
