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 email, 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.

Earlier this week we were fortunate enough to attend the Demo conference in Palm Desert. For those of you who are not familiar, Demo is mostly designed for startups and entrepreneurs to gather and launch their latest products and companies. We were lucky enough to be accepted to demo our newest generation of our Facebook security application Defensio.
At the conference we showed some of the exciting new features we have put into this version specifically designed to protect corporate brand presence and properties on the social Web. The Defensio technology protects companies' brands, their reputation, their customers, and prospects on their Facebook page by analyzing and classifying user-generated content posted to their pages.
New Defensio features debuted at DEMO Spring 2011 include in-depth analysis and protection for embedded photos and videos on Facebook pages and news feeds. Not available anywhere else, corporate Defensio users are protected from photos and video with hidden malicious links. Defensio automatically removes unsavory content, which protects fans and brand reputation.
For organizations looking to quickly understand what malicious links, spam, and profanity are appearing on their Facebook page, we also showcased Defensio's new "Scan my Facebook page!" button. Brand administrators simply visit www.websense.com/facebook and click the "Scan my Facebook page!" button. Defensio's technology will then analyze the corporate Facebook page and provide easy-to-interpret metrics to detail the volume of malicious content, spam, and profanity that resides on the page.
