Why Mobile Devices Are So Hard To Secure

IT security is difficult no matter what the platform — because software is imperfect, complex and constantly changing. However, there are three key factors which make securing mobile devices even more challenging.


Why You Don't Always Need An App

As soon as mobile phones and tablets begin rolling out in an enterprise, you know it’s only a matter of time before someone says “We should introduce an app”. Is that a sensible idea? It very much depends on the circumstances, and it certainly isn’t the case that moving to supporting mobile devices means you also have to roll out newly-developed mobile apps for your workforce.


How Can You Justify Mobile Security Expenditure?

One of the challenges with any security implementation is justifying the expenditure. Security technology costs money, but it doesn’t produce a direct business return. So how can you convince your management to spend that money? These guidelines and suggestions can help.

When It Makes Sense To Restrict Device Choice

We’ll be devoting most of this ebook to looking at how you can expand device choice in a secure fashion, but it’s worth recognising that there are scenarios where limited device choices can make sense. We don’t want to suggest this is the norm — if only because you’re likely to experience passive resistance in the form of people bringing their own devices anyway — but there are occasions when it can make sense.


Laptops, Convertibles, Tablets: Which Should You Choose?

Even if you’ve decided that mobile phones will only play a relatively minimal role in your environment (calls, texts, emails and basic browsing), your mobile choices have only just begun. The conventional laptop still plays a vital role, but now competes with tablet machines and hybrids (which can convert from tablet to laptop form as needed) for corporate attention. Here’s our take on when each form factor makes sense.


How To Save Money Buying Mobile Devices

While prices continue to drop thanks to Moore’s Law, investing in mobile devices — whether that’s for laptop PCs, tablets or phones — still represents a major capital outlay. Follow these guidelines to cut down on needless expenses.
