Cloud Image.jpegReliance on the cloud among enterprises is higher than it’s ever been—a recent study from GigaOm Research found that 83 percent of organizations have adopted the cloud “for some function.” However, much of that adoption may not actually be authorized by IT; the same study found that 81 percent of employees admitted to “using unauthorized SaaS applications.” Of those using unauthorized services, 38 percent mentioned they were doing so deliberately because of onerous or restrictive IT measures.

Obviously, it’s not that IT professionals want to limit productivity, it’s that security is our chief concern. In the quest to balance stakeholder interests, we can feel caught between the mandate to protect the organization and...

Supporting mobility across most organizations has long ceased to be a matter of ‘if’ and much more one of ‘how’ – because enterprises have come to recognize and acknowledge the huge contribution it can deliver to the business. Mobile is transforming how we work, and products and services are rapidly evolving. What remains to be negotiated, however, is management of the challenges that mobility brings with it.

For example, how many organizations have an official BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy, with proper controls in place? How many, by contrast, are allowing unsanctioned BYOD to take place, with employees accessing email or work documents from their personal devices? And how many more are simply locking down corporate devices and ignoring that any BYOD is happening at all? In other words, the response to BYOD is, at best, patchy.

It’s not only BYOD, but also BYOA (Bring Your Own Application). There are employees who are accessing company information on their...

VIDEO: Introducing Symantec Mobility: Suite

Today mobility offers ‘any device, any time, any place’ productivity, appealing to both enterprises and employees.  However, that flexibility comes with challenges – protecting corporate data on devices, separating personal and corporate information, managing diverse operating systems, and preventing devices and apps from becoming another attack vector.

Mobility Suite simplifies mobility management, integrating mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM) and mobile threat protection into one comprehensive, single console solution. Whether a user’s environment is...

classroom.jpgEmployers who’ve embraced Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs do so anticipating a more nimble workforce; employees being reachable everywhere, collaboration across geographies, and less company-owned hardware to purchase. While employees enjoy the freedom to use their own device, organizations sometimes fail to properly cover all of the necessary staff training that accompanies a BYOD program. Similarly, emails to employees regarding the changes BYOD brings or a buried/confusing policy can be missed, leading employees to fail to...

NitroDesk and Symantec have had a long history of partnering together on secure email solutions. One of the attractive aspects of the merger was the fact that a key focus for both companies is security. Combined, we aspire to bring to enterprise customers a set of offerings that leverage aspects of mobility and security from a vast array of components that are readily available within the Symantec portfolio. These include DLP, Mobile Application Management, Identity and Access Management, archival, secure file sharing and others.

devices.jpgLike it or not, companies are continuing to face a wave of new internet-connected devices hitting their networks. Driven by employee’s desire for newer, sleeker, and faster devices, IT departments are often finding themselves hurrying to develop a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) programs and mobility policies that’s both secure and appealing to their end users. There’s little doubt that BYOD programs are growing in popularity, Gartner predicts that as many as half of employers will soon require employees use their own device for work purposes. However, the governing policies for these programs are sometimes implemented clumsily, or not at all. Getting these policies right the first time can be extremely important to not only the security of business data and intellectual...
