Symantec Mobility: Suite 5.0 is almost here – building on our commitment to a new strategy, unveiled with the release of 4.0, to streamline and simplify the solution, so it can deliver significantly improved performance for customers and partners. The SaaS version is already out, with On-Premise scheduled for early October.

Symantec Mobility Suite 5.0 will:

  • Offer a single console with flexible, modular packaging
  • Improve the user experience (streamlined tasks and enrollment)
  • Support Windows Phone 8.1, Samsung SAFE, and Apple iOS 8.
  • Simplify Android device enrollment

Why does 5.0 matter so much? Because it is the most significant release to date for mobile management. While mobility offers ‘any device, any time, any place’ productivity, appealing to both enterprises and employees, that same flexibility comes with challenges – protecting corporate data on devices, separating personal and corporate information, managing...

One of the central challenges of what has been termed 'consumerization' is how to balance the benefits experienced by employees using their own devices and applications, with the inherent risks to the business of doing so. The bottom line is one of cost - while employees may be more productive as a result, working more efficiently and delivering results faster, if something goes wrong the business may be left out of pocket. 

The risks are real. Consider the simple example of someone accessing corporate email on a personal device, against the fact that 60% of mobile device users don't have a pin code. Given that smartphones and tablets are frequent targets for theft, it seems only a matter of time before internal corporate communications, intellectual property, even customer data could end up in the wrong hands.

At the same time, mobile access to data and services really does make people more productive. Even if it were possible, a ban on smart devices...

This blog was originally posted in Information Unleashed.

Symantec’s first State of Information report examined how organizations are dealing with information today, in light of significant changes in the data center. Symantec’s Digital Information Index sheds light on where information is being stored today, as well as some of the challenges that businesses are dealing with as a result of this transition in the way we store and access our information.

Information is moving from traditional storage in data centers to devices outside of the corporate firewall. This new category of unorganized, duplicative information is referred to as “information sprawl.” Symantec’s Digital Information Index provides a barometer for information sprawl in different areas of the world. The Index shows that in certain growing...

Consumerisation is nothing new. When personal computers first arrived (together with office and database software from companies like Lotus, WordPerfect and Microsoft) they enabled people with a bit of money to equip their home offices in much the same way as their workplaces. The key phrase here is, "with a bit of money," as the earliest adopters of home technology were frequently the more senior corporate staff. With a simple floppy disk drive providing the connection between home and work, executives were quickly impressing each other with their database prowess or skill in creating presentations. Roll forward a few decades and technology has become a lot more accessible and affordable.

These days we use the term 'consumerisation' to talk about smartphones and 'apps', use of online collaboration and storage, and indeed, having computers and printers at home that are often more powerful or functional than corporate-supplied kit. The...
