Every organization and every industry is being transformed by the trend towards cloud and mobility.
There is no shortage of narrow point solutions that can provide bits and pieces of the overarching solution you need – but modern IT departments face enough day-to-day challenges without having to constantly fine tune and integrate a bunch of different products.
We’ve assembled a step-by-step guide to help you address the challenges you face as you work to go mobile, stay mobile, and protect your data with an end-to-end solution. Download this free e-book to learn:
• How application policy relates to providing secure e-mail
• How to set up policy for MAM without enrollment apps via application managed policy
• How to create device configuration policies for both corporate-owned and personally owned devices
• How to authenticate and authorize access to your company resources
• How to get end-to-end protection for mobile e-mail up and running in your own environment.

How to think about the risk to data from the mobile ecosystem
Mobile devices, even those that are corporate owned, are personal. Your CEO uses the same smartphone to send confidential emails, snap family photos, inspect customer records, get directions to meetings, and scrutinize financial reports. Every employee in your organization does the same thing. Your organization's critical data is constantly being accessed by mobile devices, and once it leaves the network you have no visibility into where it goes, and little or no ability to enforce your security policy to protect it.
Your organization’s sensitive data has made the mobile ecosystem the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that every CISO must now understand. Take a deep dive into all twelve elements of the Mobile Risk Matrix in the interactive table below.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property. However, the threat-centric security approach, with its static policies forces decisions about cyber activity with no insight into the broader context. The result is a disproportionate number of flagged activities, overwhelming security teams who have no way to understand the ones most worthy of investigation. Read Rethinking Data Security with a Risk-Adaptive Approach to learn how a human-centric, risk-adaptive approach can help your organization be more proactive in order to:
• Automate policy enforcement to deter data loss events
• Reduce the number of security alerts
• Cut down on incident investigation time

In a BYOD world, companies can choose to secure and manage the entire mobile device user pool or secure portions of that community. Either way, steps must be taken to prevent unauthorized access to network resources and data loss. Enterprises should consider solutions that allow policies to be applied based on user, device, network, application, and data leakage risks.
Guidance on the strategies and tools needed for a secure and productive bring-your-own-device program. Security is a prime concern with a BYOD initiative and organizations must adjust their security strategy to accommodate increased mobility, particularly for BYOD users.
A team approach and careful consideration of operational and security issues will pave the way for effective guidance. The drivers are many, but big draws include the potential for greater productivity — giving people anywhere, anytime access to information via devices they’re comfortable with.
"As the rapid rise in the number of mobile devices and users creates an explosion in data and virtual machine instances, datacenter transformation becomes imperative for many enterprises. It is essential enterprises move to consolidate resources and cut both capital and operating costs while still providing support for distributed applications.
This brief white paper delves into a Q&A with Eric Sheppard, research director of IDC’s Storage Software program, on integrated systems and whether you should buy compute, network, and storage resources together. Read on as you will discover:
What integrated systems are, and its benefits
The differences between an integrated platform and integrated infrastructure
How datacenters are leveraging these new systems today
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
• Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
• Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
• Deploy locally with zero touch via automated
Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.
Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, enable increasing numbers of employees to work "anywhere, anytime."The security of enterprise data is a key concern, particularly on mobile devices that are easily lost or stolen. The security risk is further heightened by the proliferation of employee-owned mobile devices in many enterprises. Employees will almost always take the path of least resistance in leveraging mobile devices for business purposes, which may lead to unsafe computing practices. A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
