Yesterday evening I gave a talk on the subject “Enterprise Mobile Security” to the London chapter of the Institute of Information Security Professionals – IISP for short. I talked about the business drivers towards the growing use of mobile devices and consumerisation, security risks, and the requirements for securely enabling the use of business apps.
I demonstrated a couple of example solutions which can address some of the security risks:
- Application access from an iPad to a corporate network, using SSL VPN and certificate authentication, so that the connection experience is automatic and invisible to the user
- Anti-malware solution for Android smartphones, combining the use of a mobile device management system to monitor and help identify malicious applications, with an anti-virus client for Android
The presentation (excluding the demos) can be viewed here:
My talk was followed by “Defending your turf: what does it take to protect data in a mobile workforce” presented by Nader Henein from the Blackberry Security group at Research in Motion.
