Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) suites are policy and configuration management tools to manage applications and content for mobile devices. EMM provides the following core functions:
Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables the right individuals to access the right resources at the right times for the right reasons. IAM insures appropriate access to resources, critical for regulatory compliance. IAM is both a business and technical expertise; organizations with mature IAM capabilities are more readily able to support new business initiatives.
Unified threat management (UTM) is a converged platform of point security products. Typical modules include:
Almost every organization has some degree of BYOD in their workplace. Employees appreciate having one familiar device for both personal and professional use. EMM enables you to containerize data so that corporate and personal content is not intermingled. In the case of a misplaced device, you can remotely wipe the company information. Learn More
Which OS integrates best with your existing infrastructure and legacy software? In these days of BYOD, most environments are mixed. EMM suites can help you secure and manage multiple OSs with a consistent mobile security policy.
Almost every industry is subject to one or more laws or regulations such as PCI, HIPAA and FISMA. The penalties and fines for failure to comply can be quite steep. IAM can help you control who has access to what information and make it easier to remain in compliance.
SSO enables users to log in once but access multiple password-protected applications. This helps eliminate password sprawl and those sticky notes with login credentials attached to monitors. This enhances productivity by making applications easily accessible and improves security by reducing the amount of password reuse and having them all stored in a single repository. SSO is enabled by IAM.
Requires more than one credential to log in. It’s a combination of two or more types of authentication; what a user knows (password), what a user has (security token) and who a user is (biometric verification). This layered defense makes it much more difficult to be breached as there are multiple barriers. IAM enables this level of protection without it being an inconvenience or drag on productivity.
These mobile security tools need to be configured in accordance with your mobile security policies and monitored in order to achieve the best outcomes. CTS can help you get them set up properly and manage them.
