As Forrester analyst Christian Kane pointed out in his analysis of Symantec’s proposed acquisition of Nukona, enterprises want a single solution to account for their devices, apps and data. I couldn’t agree more.

My last blog post was nearly a month ago, on the day that Symantec announced the agreement to acquire Nukona. I’m proud to say that we have finalized the transaction, and Nukona is now a part of the Symantec family! This is the beginning of a whole new era of growth for Nukona’s products and for the industry, and I’m really excited about it.

As you know, we have always pushed the envelope, and our goals for the Nukona product line are higher than ever. Stay tuned as we continue to drive for greater usability and capability in enterprise mobility security and management with Symantec’s Endpoint Management and Mobility Group.

The acquisition couples Nukona’s unique Mobile Information Management (MIM) technology with Symantec’s expertise, broad portfolio of security and management products and strong relationships with enterprise customers.

Today Symantec announced a definitive agreement to acquire Nukona. Both Jeff Enderwick (co-founder) and I wrestled with this decision, but ultimately it just made too much sense; not just for Nukona but for the industry as a whole.

We started the company in mid-2010, barely three months after the original iPad was launched. Now tens of millions are in use in enterprises and that will very soon become hundreds of millions. With the BYOD trend accelerating rapidly thanks to the capabilities offered by the latest tablets and smartphones, a massive change in corporate computing is well under way.

And what are the biggest challenges for enterprises with BYOD and the Consumerization of IT? It’s very simple: information security and...

Forget about employee carelessness or malice. Just typical use of a mobile platform can result in your information ending up in unintended places. Even when the “harvester” has only the best intentions. A quick example here.
Symantec Corp. | 26 Feb 2012 | 1 comment

by Rob Greer, vice president of product management, Endpoint and Mobility Group, Symantec

The impact mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have had on the way we live our lives and the way we do business is nothing short of revolutionary. It is quickly approaching parity with the impact of other significant technological innovations, such as the personal computer and the Internet.

As an indication that mobility has truly gone business mainstream, a recent Symantec survey on the state of mobility revealed that 59 percent of organizations are now making line-of-business apps available to employees on mobile devices and 71 percent are even considering the creation of a corporate app store. Why is this transformation happening? The answer is because mobile technology has proven itself as a legitimate source of business agility. Consider that about three-quarters of businesses surveyed expected to increase efficiency through mobility, and the full 73...

I am frequently asked for some additional specifics regarding how to configure the Enable Authentication Check functionality in Symantec Mobile Management Solution. So, here is a screenshot (domain names changed) showing a valid configuration. In the example below I have allowed members of two groups to enroll mobile iOS devices - 'Can Enroll 1' & 'Can Enroll 2'

A couple of important notes:

1) Under 'AD/LDAP Server', do NOT use a fully qualified domain name (fqdn)

2) Whenever changes are made to this configuration, it is important that you restart the 'Symantec Mobile Management Service Agent' if you want the changes to be put in place immediately. If you do not restart this service, the changes should be applied to your Mobile Management server within 30 minutes (or thereabouts).

3) Ensure you are using MMS 7.1 MR1 or later as there was a bug in the original release version which...

My Google filters sometimes snags on the strangest stuff. An interview given by Mobile Iron’s Bob Tinker can be found here. We compete with a variety of non-MDM enterprise app store vendors. As the one enterprise app store vendor who’s actually implemented MDM as well, here’s me sticking up for the little guys.

Let’s have a look at Bob’s threat models one-by-one:

  1. “Imagine a scenario where an employee wants to maliciously distribute corporate apps outside the company.” I wouldn’t put that at the top of the list, but hey, it’s his interview. The bad employee can just as easily get the app off the device whether or not the device has MDM. Next.
  2. “An enterprise app storefront integrated with management and security can...
