Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2013 Mobile Security Strategies and Vendor Leadership: North American Enterprise Survey, which details enterprises’ plans for deploying security solutions for mobile devices, as well as their thoughts on leading mobile security vendors.
“For many IT organizations, there’s an immediate need to do something about the mobile device security problem because like it or not, a new wave of mobile devices is being connected to corporate networks, and companies are looking to lock down these devices and control which apps they can use,” notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.
Wilson continues: “We believe that SSL VPNs will become a cornerstone of many enterprise mobile device security strategies moving forward because they solve an immediate connection security requirement, are familiar and easy to use, often free, and will likely support additional security and control functions.”
ENTERPRISE MOBILE SECURITY SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS
- Around 1/3 of enterprises interviewed by Infonetics currently allow the use of employee-owned devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Android smartphones and tablets on their networks
- Managing and securing rogue devices connected by users was named as a driver for deploying mobile device security by 72% of enterprises surveyed
- Over 3/4 of respondents have purchased or are considering purchasing a cloud-based or hybrid cloud/client-based mobile security solution, with cost being the #1 driver
- Roughly 1 million malicious or high-risk Android apps alone are anticipated this year, and Infonetics expects that nearly all enterprises will experience significant mobile device security incidents by 2015
MOBILE SECURITY SURVEY SYNOPSIS
For its 27-page mobile security survey, Infonetics interviewed purchase-decision makers at 103 medium and large companies in the U.S. and Canada about their mobile device security strategies. The survey provides insights into enterprises’ mobile security deployment drivers and barriers, purchase plans and expenditures, cloud and SaaS solutions, security incidents, and familiarity with and ratings of mobile security vendors. Vendors named in the report include AirWatch, Apple, Avast, Check Point, Cisco, IBM, Juniper, Kaspersky, McAfee, Microsoft, MobileIron, RIM (Blackberry), Symantec/Norton, Trend Micro, Zenprise/Citrix, and others.

Most companies hope for rapid growth so it's important to invest in scalable core technologies that won't demand a complete overhaul when a business goes through a growth spurt. Cloud technology enables previously difficult-to-scale solutions like phone, network infrastructure or billing systems to automatically scale based on demand. For example, with a virtual PBX service, a single-user cloud phone service can easily transition into an advanced VoIP system that supports hundreds of phones and ...

“Oh, dev is dev and ops is ops, and never the twain shall meet.” With apoloies to Rudyard Kipling and all of his fans, this describes the early state of the two sides of DevOps. Yet the DevOps approach is demanded by cloud computing, as the speed, flexibility, and scalability in today's so-called “Third Platform” must not be hindered by the traditional limitations of software development and deployment. A recent report by Gartner, for example, says that 25% of Global 2000 companies will b...

Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects - scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e....

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...
