Ninety-nine percent of the enterprise workforce currently uses mobile devices – smart phones and tablets – to perform their jobs today. Nearly 60 percent of security leaders describe their organizations as either partially or fully mobile, deriving enhanced productivity and other business benefits.
Reflecting on the survey results provides the opportunity to take a broad view of enterprise mobility and realize how business transformation has begun. Nearly all enterprises now incorporate mobility in their work, and a majority now sees tangible business results from mobility. Organizations are seeing greater efficiencies and productivity from mobile workers.
Protecting confidential data while keeping mobile users productive.
The terms Data Leak Prevention (DLP) and Container are beginning to dominate the mobile management conversation. Over the past few years great strides have been made in providing the tools and solutions that offer management and security for mobile devices; both for devices the enterprise owns and those that employees own.
While these solutions generally meet the need to secure the device, they have been lacking in some of the more sophisticated security aspects that are commonplace in laptop and distributed network deployments. Specifically lacking are the robust DLP controls common in laptop management solutions.

When the CMO Council recently asked more than 200 senior marketing decision makers how effectively they have aligned physical and digital experiences, half admitted that these integrated experiences were selective, at best. Yet it is alignment, consistency and connection that drive the foundational relationship between the brand and the buyer.
The CMO Council, in partnership with IBM, will host a one-hour interactive webcast with industry-leading media, entertainment and telecommunications marketers to discuss how audience insights across the digital and physical experience have been turned into action, allowing these brands to personalize and enrich each engagement.
Multiple case studies will also be discussed during the webcast that focus on the power of segmentation and innovations around cognitive computing.
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
Threats to your digital assets are everywhere. They’re constant. So you build defenses to keep them out. But like a carpenter framing a new addition to a house, you want to regularly step back from working on the details for a full view of your work. Do the enterprise security measures you’ve built do a complete job of protecting against intrusions? Or have you left any gaps that allow bad actors an easy way in? When you check all the possibilities, you might be surprised.
Improper user access to applications can expose an organization to cyber attacks, with wide-ranging financial, social, public relations and legal implications for a compromised enterprise. To address these risks—and to meet regulatory requirements for authentication, data privacy and security—organizations sometimes find themselves wrestling with complex and costly access-management approaches.
Many organizations face access management chaos. As applications and resources have spread across on-premise data centers and multiple cloud providers, users are often accessing these resources from anywhere and on multiple devices. These simultaneous trends have left access management systems fragmented and access polices inconsistent, resulting in an environment that is expensive to maintain and challenging to secure.
Authentication is the beating heart of security. The most fundamental action in all of IT is to identify “who you are”—and authentication is the building block that answers that question. Now more than ever, IT teams must do everything they can to ensure that users are who they say they are, and that their credentials have not been stolen. IT is in state of crisis, with hundreds of millions of identities stolen annually. For system administrators, it’s crucial to know which users have the right to access a given resource, and whether unauthorized users have tried to get in.
Exposing data or suffering downtime not only creates risks to patient safety, supports identity theft and damages the hospital's reputation, but can also result in signi?cant HIPAA penalties. The costs include the time your staff spends responding to the attack and lost productivity when systems are unavailable or work needs to be redone. Investing in computer and network security is a smart ?nancial decision for hospitals.

One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack.
