Re: Mobile security
A cogent summary of the issues of mobile security and BYOD, network connectivity, etc. and how to deploy tools and policies to remedy the issues for all kinds of businesses. The University example is particularly good since it spans a wide range of use cases and a heterogeneous population.

Re: Mobile security
Jastro, like universities, cinemas and shopping malls also have many guest users. There the need for network security doubles. Infact the need for security is so immense that highly effective versions may be needed.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
Great points, mobile devices need the utmost security when it comes to BYOD and enterprises. Security health check and network access controls are imperative.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
Coming up with an efficient security toolbox for BOYD in the enterprise is certainly a challenging task, but one can always begin with the general purpose network management tools and expound to more complex ones when necessary.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
Houngbo,

Most enterprises have no choice but to implement these Mobile Security Solutions from the Word Go(simply because Mobile is such a Huge part of the Business today that it can't be ignored one bit now).

In fact,if any enterprise Ignores Mobile Security that is surely a recipe for Enterprise IT Disaster.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
eethtworkz, the newly established organizations are better placed to implement the most secure network unlike older ones who have to not only invest in new technology but also has to invest in smooth uninstallation of the previously used.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
I trust you are right as thing need to be upgraded and changed... and in most case it Rip and replace... only solution...

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
Waqas,

I don't think its fair to straightaway say that Older Organizations are either incapable or unable to make this transistion(to secure Networks) most effectively.

The way I look at it is from two seperate perspectives-

One)Senior Management Buy-in(especially those who control the Purse Strings)

and

Second)Full Awareness regarding current threat sceanarios and the impact they can have on your current Business.

As you can see both this perspectives are not restricted to only Newer Organizations.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
eethtworkz, yes but don't you think that it is comparatively easy for new organizations about to setup their infrastructure to adopt security systems compared to old organizations with an established and operational infrastructure ?
eethtworkz   SPONSORED: Mobile Security — A Use Case   5/22/2014 2:23:24 PM
Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
Waqas,

Again it can work both ways.

Lets say your New Enterprise is stuffed with Old Folks who are used to old ways of Doing Business/Technology.What happens then?

Do you feel they will be very welcoming of more Technology?

I don't think so.

Re: Mobile Security- A Use Case
eethtworkz, yes that's a possibility. From HR perspective, it can happpen that older folks have to be hired because of their specialized skills required to successfully run the business. Obviously that will be detrimental from IT perspective.

Re: Mobile Security - A Use Case
This was very well-produced, thanks a lot. As others have said, Mobile is a topic that certainly can't get enough coverage these days, and as professionals, we certainly can't be too prepared to deal with it. Someone else pointed out how great an example the University was, and I'll second that - the many diverse user types, the complexity and variety of the systems in use, not to mention the phsyical size and scope of the operation in many buildings that could be spread out over a large area. Comparisons to a traditional Enterprise are apt, and in fact, the University might be an example of a place that pushes security needs even farther than that of the average enterprise.

Even if your needs aren't quite as robust as this example case, though, a suite like this is still a great investment. It offers you all kinds of capabilities you couldn't have on your own, and even if you find you don't use all of them from day one, you might find that you end up needing the rest as time goes on (which is why it's great that to have a solution so customizable). Moreover, even for tasks you could do yourself, a suite like this automates many of them or has them working out of the box - and the time saved there can't be overstated. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Mobile Security - A Use Case
Zerox,

Undoubtedly,this was a very well produced Documentary.

Univerisities have to work harder than most Conventional Enterprises given the kind of Crowd they attract [The Young ones tend to experiment more with Technology].

I am not surprised to hear that Mobile gets the kind of Focus it has today simply because almost every single consumer around us has a Mobile Device(or Two).

Also,Privacy Issues(given that Geolocation has the tendency to track you down very-very closely) here can't be neglected enough .

Here's a Cool Webinar on APTs That I recently came across from Fidelis Security.

Volumes and share of uncontrolled
Nicole, interesting stuff. You are right. No one size fits all because some organizations may have uncontrolled devices accessing the network more often than other organizations. Also the volume of traffic is a major consideration for which version or app to select.
