Office mobility Consumerization of devices

This is a good read for IT security professionals on how to address the influx of Apple and Android mobile devices in the enterprise:

 

"No longer with the option of saying no to its employees, organizations are finding that solutions and techniques exist for managing and securing the mobile devices workers wish to connect to the corporate network.

 

"Indeed, across the globe, business users are clamoring for corporate permission to use the coolest new consumer-oriented mobile devices, namely the iPhone and iPad, and smartphones and tablets using the Android operating system. And enterprise IT security executives are under pressure to give them this access – in a way that won't jeopardize the company's information assets."

Apple and Android, the slow pall bearers to RIM's eventual demise

RIM is losing the enterprise to Apple and Google even though Apple and Google haven’t put much effort into marketing their phones as business tools. Consumers are increasingly tech-savvy and know what the devices in their hands are capable of, and are insisting that IT shops provide mobile access to e-mail at the very least. While IT has historically been wary of consumer devices, it’s getting harder for IT shops to say no to the iPhone and Android because both have boosted support for Exchange ActiveSync, the de facto standard for bringing corporate e-mail to non-BlackBerry phones. BlackBerry offers more administration options, but most businesses may be satisfied with the core features available from competitors, like encryption, password unlock, forced PIN entry and remote wipes. The combination of consumer preferences, iPhone and Android becoming good enough for most business scenarios, and last week’s lengthy BlackBerry outage give businesses fewer reasons to stick with RIM.

The management challenges of mobile devices is rapidly becoming an overwhelming thought for many IT leaders for three key reasons:

 

- Many employees have a laptop, a smart phone, and now an iPad, creating a 3X management challenge.

- Apps, the second wave of consumerization, are being downloaded at an unprecedented pace.

- The definition of “mobile worker” has changed. Employees no longer need to be mobile to need mobility in their jobs.
