Well, there’s one thing that you can say about the mobile tsunami — it has generated a LOT of acronyms. BYOD, CYOD, COPE, MDM, MAM, MIM, MCM… the list goes on.
One of the newest is “EMM” or Enterprise Mobility Management. The cynic might argue that EMM is just a way for mobile security vendors to sell more of their products by bundling Mobile Device Management, Mobile App Management, and Mobile Content Management into one “must have” über-mobile security solution called EMM. Perhaps they’re right, but mobile security is a significant challenge and making sure that all areas are covered makes it all the more challenging.
But in the rush to secure the mobile device and surround our apps with containers and controls, are we forgetting to consider the apps themselves?
Mobile security, or more correctly, data security, should start with the apps used to access and manipulate important and sensitive business information. If the apps your employees use were not purpose built with data loss prevention policies and other means to protect your data, then why are they using them?
For example, can your email app verify that recipients are authorized to view the email being sent from a mobile device? Does your Dropbox app automatically provide Microsoft RMS protection to all files uploaded to the cloud? Can your document container restrict users from sending business documents via personal email accounts?
TITUS Classification for Mobile can do these things, and more. Designed to be easy to use and familiar for users, TITUS Classification for Mobile provides advanced data loss prevention policies and data protection features, ensuring that corporate email, documents and files are safe, even on a device without an EMM solution or any of its component technologies.
How secure are the apps your employees use to access corporate information?
