SS B20: OBS: Mobility, Identity, Cloud : How the new uses (practices) are leading enterprises to rethink their IT
Created: 28 Nov 2012 | Updated: 28 Nov 2012
As the IT landscape has rapidly evolved over the past few years, companies are facing new, complex challenges.
- Controlling data on mobile devices (such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops) has become omnipresent and can expose a considerable amount of professional data. The increase of BYOD is also generating new risk factors for enterprises.
- Complexities in controlling access to IT applications (Cloud, private stores, internal applications…). Each application uses its own access control mechanisms and its own set of credentials; it is therefore critical to manage user identities and to consistently manage access to information. Improving the user experience does not mean that security should be compromised.
