I’ve been to countless RSA Conferences. Two years ago it was
about who survived. Last year was cloud hype. This year: mobile security.
In our booth, I demonstrated our new mobile security
solution on an iPad non-stop. To the point of shoulder pain and post-show
massage therapy after holding that thing up for hours and hundreds of demos to
eager onlookers. The interest in mobile security is very real.
So how big is the problem?
We had the Ponemon Institute survey more
than 4,000 IT professionals in 12 countries. It is clear from the answers that corporate
mobile devices and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon are absolutely circumventing
enterprise security and policies. Fifty-nine percent report that employees circumvent or
disengage security features like passwords and key locks. A lost
device with no password is an open door to
calendars, social circles, and apps that access confidential information. And just over half experienced data loss because of
unsecured mobile devices, including laptops, smartphones, USB devices, and
tablets. The problem is big.
Most IT pros know that by enabling a mobile workforce they
are supporting business productivity, but they also recognize the risk. Check
out the full results of the survey here.
I can’t say this often enough: standard mobile device
management (MDM) isn’t enough. You really need to look at the new Websense
TRITON Mobile Security solution that we announced the RSA Conference. It
combines four components (web security, data security, mobile malware / app
protection, and mobile device management features). As a cloud security
service, it prevents confidential data loss on iPads, iPhones, Android, and
other mobile devices.
