With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends set to overrun IT concerns, it makes sense for enterprises to focus on mobile application security and mobile device management solutions (MDM) rather than prophylactic attempts to clamp it down. Recognizing the irrefutable advantages of enterprise mobility, industry leaders are launching various MDM solutions that will help organizations safeguard sensitive data from hacks and fraudsters.

We talk about a few of the promising mobile device and application security solutions available.

Zenprise’s Zensuite

Leader in MDM, Zenprise introduced Zenprise MobileManager 8.0 and Zensuite for end-to-end secure mobile productivity that ensures a superlative user experience even as sensitive data is protected on all mobile touch points across devices within enterprise control. It supports secure email attachments with encryption, secure corporate browser (browser specific VPN, URL blacklists, etc.), application virtualization (app specific VPN, data compression, DLP policies, etc.), and secure content and collaboration (secure encrypted container on device for content, prevents editing to external apps, time expires, etc.).

Blue Coat Cloud Service – Mobile Device Security

The Blue Coat Mobile Device Security (MDS) service is part of the Blue Coat Cloud Service that protects employees accessing web or corporate content from varied devices or networks. The MDS service applies application and operational controls across both native mobile and mobile browser applications on iOS devices. It enables flexibility by facilitating the access users want while assuring the security businesses need via network-based granular application controls and web filtering.

IBM’s Mobile Development Lifecycle Solution V4.0

The new IBM Mobile Development Lifecycle Solution V4.0 aims to provide a development infrastructure for the development and delivery of mobile applications for multiple device ecosystems such as iOS and Android, assuring on-time delivery, high quality, and effectiveness of apps.

Based on initial usage, IBM claims the development tools improve delivery time by 25 percent, reduce the cost of app development, and reduce defects in apps by 20 percent.

EMC Syncplicity Integration with SlideShark
