ST B03: Mobile Security and Management in the Telco industry
According to all analysts, the market for mobile security and management is growing fast. While only one quarter of companies are using Telcos and Service Providers for managed mobile security and management today, within the next two years, the potential number may grow by about 50%. Communications Service Providers (CSPs) not only need to establish trust in their network to drive customer acquisition and retention, they can easily serve millions of subscribers with an unique network-based policy enforcement approach that supports a variety of services and granularity down to the individual subscriber level. Employees in companies of all sizes are accessing public cloud services from mobile devices – often personally owned or unmanaged – bypassing IT policies and risking information leakage. Service Providers find themselves in a great position to offer a security layer – independent of the device and cloud service to provide secure access control, information protection and compliance monitoring.
