Steve Brasen, EMAThe Scope of Mobile Device Management

by Steve Brasen, Managing Research Director, Enterprise Mobile and Endpoint Management

It was not long after the introduction of mobile devices into the workplace (initially smartphones, but later tablets as well) that organizations recognized the need to impose security restrictions on access to sensitive data and provide some mechanism for the distribution of enterprise applications. This need led to the birth of Mobile Device Management (MDM), a practice initially developed to support the unique and emerging requirements of enterprise mobile device users. Initial MDM tools were point solutions principally focused around security management with basic features such as device lock and wipe, but a rapidly expanding list of requirements soon led to more comprehensive MDM solution suites.

Avoiding Data Breaches in 2016: What You Need to Know

Date / Time: Tuesday, February 23 @ 11 am Pacific / 2 pm EasternBMC

The groundbreaking research report from BMC and Forbes Insights, "The Game Plan For Closing The SecOps Gap," surveying more than 300 C-level executives in North America and Europe, showed a resounding 97% of the executives expected a rise in data breaches. Astonishingly, 44% of executives say breaches occur even after vulnerabilities and remediation paths are identified. So almost half of data breaches could have been prevented. As a result, 99% plan to invest more in security in the next 12 months than they did in 2015.

Achieving High-Fidelity SecurityEMA Research Report

The "High-Fidelity" research project was created to understand more about organizations' data collection and use habits with regard to security.

This report outlines issues with data collection and use and shows how these gaps can impact an organization's ability to maintain high-fidelity security.
