Research suggests the number of smart mobile devices (SMDs) managed in the enterprise increased by 72 percent from 2014 to 2015. While a significant increase, this number shows that businesses are still not embracing mobile to its fullest potential and making devices more readily available in the workplace. This is due to technology, security and regulatory concerns held by the IT department.
So, what is the solution? There is no doubt enterprises face a significant challenge in providing improved applications through mobile. Goode Intelligence believes convenience, mobility and strengthened security all need to be considered factors – while meeting company legislation. Goode Intelligence has researched this topic in-depth since 2007 and considered five characteristics to be key to next generation mobile security:
- Focus on users
- Agile multi-factor authentication (MFA)
- Mobile Single-Sign-On (SSO)
- Protect data
- Simplified unified security
