IT teams hear this demand repeatedly from today's workers. People enjoy 24/7 connectivity and engaging user experiences with their personal devices, and want the same benefits when using mobile technology for work. IT administrators are re-evaluating security policies to align and support mobile initiatives like BYOD and cloud computing. But concerns about data leakage and compliance risk, and lack of IT resources, prevent many organizations from moving as quickly as they should to embrace BYOD mobility.
To maintain competitive advantage, today's organizations must simplify the complexities of secure access across the modern, diversified workforce and effectively support BYOD and cloud initiatives. At the same time, they must:
- Ensure context-aware policies - by role, device, and location
- Enforce mobile data management (MDM)
- Gain the network visibility needed to ensure end-to-end compliance
- Offer self-provisioned BYOD to avoid burdening IT resources
These organizations also typically face:
Barriers to collaborationComplex security solutions can prevent workers from accessing corporate networks and resources remotely at business-critical moments, undermining productivity and innovation.
Retention and recruitment challengesTalented professionals who want to work on the go, but face burdensome security policies and processes, are likely to seek out other employers that support BYOD mobility.
Increased overheadDeployment of access security solutions such as mobile gateways and traditional VPN increases planning complexity, maintenance costs, and the need for expanded user training.
