The security perimeter once familiar to the enterprise has become incredibly fragmented. Data and applications reside everywhere: on the network, endpoints and in the cloud. The cloud, in particular, is seeing huge growth with enterprises adopting these environments at a rapid pace. According to Gartner, 55 percent of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025.1 Combined with an increasingly mobile and global workforce, and more importantly, increasingly distributed SaaS cloud environments, organizations are now faced with securing a multitude of applications, users, devices and networks – all hosting sensitive data that is critical to business growth, reputation and customer trust.

Convenience is absolutely critical to succeeding in e-commerce. Any glitches along the path to purchase potentially result in a lost sale. That's one reason we think Apple Pay's new mobile payment feature that uses a fingerprint is going to be a game changer. Its another step in reducing hurdles to online buying. You see it, you select it, you pay with your finger. What could be more convenient?
Not interested in Apple Pay? Or unable to use it? At the very least, make sure customers that shop on multiple devices are recognized, no matter which device they log into. Giving them access to their stored information will make for a much smoother checkout.

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f

If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.

Today, data is constantly flowing in and out of organizations from electrical and mechanical sensors, RFID tags, smart meters, scanners, mobile devices, vehicles, live social media, machines and other objects. Did you know that a modern plane with more than 10,000 sensors just in the wings is expected to generate more than 7 terabytes a day? And Bain predicts that by 2020 annual revenues could exceed $470 billion for the internet of things (IoT) vendors selling hardware, software and comprehensive solutions.
Analysts believe that all of this data will drive a new type of industrial revolution – one that’s driven by highly accurate, real-time analysis, alerts and actions. Increasingly, machines will automate decisions and simply notify humans with instructions. Consider the promise of the IoT, where any object can be connected to the internet and continuously send and receive data. Gartner says that by 2020, 21 billion IoT devices will be in use worldwide.
In today’s business model, organizations must provide support and flexibility in addressing the needs of a growing mobile workforce, and interactions with external partners, suppliers, and clients. In short, today’s business model must look beyond corporate walls and extend their business processes and access to business information in an effective, and secure manner regardless of device type. In this way, cloud applications can be leveraged to enhance and extend business processes beyond their corporate walls and support the increasing use of mobile devices.
This paper presents the challenges and benefits of implementing an integrated cloud solution that provides the flexibility, agility, and security business organizations need to increase operational efficiency, and responsiveness.

The modern, mobile enterprise is expanding faster than ever, across every part of the world and in every industry. Increasingly, organizations are looking for comprehensive security blueprints to help them secure their mobile devices, apps, and data without compromising productivity or the user experience.
For that reason, iOS has become the mobile OS of choice in a majority of enterprises because of its highly intuitive, user-friendly, and easy to manage design. With MobileIron’s enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform, IT organizations gain a comprehensive mobile solution that complements and augments the security features inherent in iOS.
The perimeter continues to dissolve, and the definition of endpoint is evolving, according to results of the SANS 2016 Endpoint Security Survey, now in its third year.
As we might expect, 90% or more consider desktops, servers, routers, firewalls and printers to be endpoints that need to be protected. After that, respondents include other less-typical devices in their definition of endpoints that warrant protection: 71% include building security (access/ surveillance), 59% include employee-owned mobile devices and 40% consider industrial control systems as endpoints that need to be protected. Some respondents also consider POS devices, smart cars, emulated endpoints in the cloud and wearables as endpoints needing protection, highlighting the diversity of thinking among respondents.
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) have taken leading roles in exploring requirements for Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems for government
Mobile devices, particularly smartphones, are exceptionally vulnerable to security breaches. They are easily lost, are filled with unknown applications, communicate over untrusted networks, and are often purchased by users without regard to IT standards and security features.
Protecting confidential data while keeping mobile users productive.
The terms Data Leak Prevention (DLP) and Container are
beginning to dominate the mobile management
conversation. Over the past few years great strides have been
made in providing the tools and solutions that offer
management and security for mobile devices; both for devices
the enterprise owns and those that employees own.
While these solutions generally meet the need to secure the
device, they have been lacking in some of the more

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.
Ninety-nine percent of the enterprise workforce currently uses mobile devices – smart phones and tablets – to perform their jobs today. Nearly 60 percent of security leaders describe their organizations as either partially or fully mobile, deriving enhanced productivity and other business benefits.
Reflecting on the survey results provides the opportunity to take a broad view of enterprise mobility and realize how business transformation has begun. Nearly all enterprises now incorporate mobility in their work, and a majority now sees tangible business results from mobility. Organizations are seeing greater efficiencies and productivity from mobile workers.
