In recent years, a growing number of enterprises and organizations are encouraging employees to bring their own smartphones, tablets and laptops to work and use them to access privileged company information.
According to recent research, some 75% of employees in high growth markets such as Brazil and Russia and 44% in developed markets are already using their private devices at work.
While the benefits of this Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy are clear, it raises serious security issues. These risks include:
MobilityShield for BYOD
Large enterprises and organizations using Lync and SharePoint must pay attention to securing connectivity. While most mobile security solutions focus on protecting the data stored on the mobile device through encryption strategies and containerization, MobilityShield offers a new approach that completely eliminates the need to store Active Directory passwords on the device.
MobilityShield interacts directly with the client-server Lync and SharePoint traffic and effectively controls who connects to the network. This is done based on the device used and not only on credentials. MobilityShield does not require any additional client installation, making it an ideal security solution for BYOD.
