Why smartphone security policy is more effective than MDM toolsDate: Dec 10, 2012
According to mobile security expert Aaron Turner, enterprises must learn about "the ugly underbelly of the mobile device management market" before making an MDM purchase. Namely, that MDM vendors are almost entirely at the mercy of the mobile platform providers, and that means MDM tools are often much less effective than customers are led to believe.
In this video, Turner, co-founder of information security consultancy N4Struct Inc., discusses why a sound enterprise mobile security policy is a better method for securing smartphones. He also touches on how enterprises can augment mobile security using existing tools and systems, what effect BYOD has on enterprise smartphone security efforts, and why a mobile device inventory is a crucial starting point.
