Using mobile applications is much more than a trend these
days—it’s a way of life. Whether you want to map directions,
find a restaurant, look up your flight details, see where your next meeting is, or just check your email, chances are you do it on your smartphone. Consumer applications and games were the first to hit the market on mobile phones, and soon after enterprise applications followed suit. Banking is going mobile, retail is going mobile, and even HP Application Lifecycle Management (HP ALM) software has a mobile version—HP ALM Mobile.

This whitepaper examines the way in which enterprise mobility has both increased employee productivity and decreased the security of corporate networks. The paper discusses the challenges IT managers have with controlling the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) trend to allow mobile users to have access to the corporate network. Explained in the paper is the limit to visibility and control of file transfers when employees use ad hoc methods, and that educating employees on proper data access is not enough to protect the corporate network. The paper concludes by describing how Globalscape's EFT™ and Tappin™ can provide mobile access, without compromising security and controls over file sharing.
Mobile user access to ERP and other back office systems has become a core requirement as organizations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement. Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs. Frequently that information is not entered at all and become more of a hindrance to user adaption of your ERP investment.
Mobile device Management was just the beginning of enterprise security needs for iOS, Android, Windows and the ever expanding universe of devices. Data, Apps and access are what will send businesses into a new galaxy of great performance. Get there at safely light-speed with Enterprise Mobility Management.

The economy isn’t standing still. For your business to succeed, your employees shouldn’t either. That’s why companies of all types are moving to empower their mobile workforce and engage with customers in innovative ways.
To realize their potential, enterprises need to find ways to make a mobile workforce as productive when they’re away from the office and on their mobile devices as they are in the office. This means mobility systems must give users a seamless experience across the ever-expanding types of mobile devices employees use, for easy access to business-critical applications. At the same time, it must deliver a secure workspace that complies with security regulations, protects devices, plus guards business and customer data, from expanding security threats.
Cloud-first, mobile-first organizations are seeing huge benefits from taking a more distributed approach to IT. Business units are given more freedom to evaluate and select SaaS applications that will enable efficiency and growth. Users are given more freedom to use the devices that make them the most productive.
When this trend started, most IT organizations were able to implement some basic, manual processes to administer and govern IT in this best-of-breed distributed environment. However, as the number of touchpoints increases, IT needs to automate to keep pace.
This paper goes into more detail on the top 5 reasons to automate identity lifecycle and identity administration and build a solid foundation for future cloud-first, mobile-first IT.

Security was once largely limited to the confines of an on-premises world, but now it must extend to the cloud, as well as a myriad of mobile devices.
Employees and companies now expect increasingly complex interactions with devices, apps, data, and even other users. As many companies struggle to keep up with traditional single-point solutions, and limited budgets, this pressure is creating security blind spots for IT.
In a world of evolving threats, it is becoming increasingly impossible to address all of these issues with an on-premises solution.
What is needed is a holistic approach to identity-driven security—one that leverages a cloud-scale intelligent security graph to help you protect your business.
In this vision whitepaper, we look into some of the challenges facing IT in the modern world and examine the possible solutions.
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) have taken leading roles in exploring requirements for Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems for government
Mobile devices, particularly smartphones, are exceptionally vulnerable to security breaches. They are easily lost, are filled with unknown applications, communicate over untrusted networks, and are often purchased by users without regard to IT standards and security features.
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
