Northrop Grumman Chief Technologist says IT ‘dinosaur’ has to adapt to consumerization

June 4, 2013

Brandon Porco, Chief Technologist at defense contractor Northrop Grumman, says the rise of consumer technologies including mobile devices such as tablets and the apps that support them, are being embraced by users and IT needs to move quicker to support the trend.

Porco said the only real deadline IT at large has ever had was the Y2K crisis leading up to the year 2000 when the fear was computers would malfunction. “Nothing happened, but there was an urgency to get things done,” said Porco addressing a session at the CITE conference in San Francisco today.

“I don’t see that with consumerization,” he said, and it means IT is missing out on [...]

New theft recovery service targets stolen iPads

May 8, 2013

There are already a range of Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions that help manage the loss of mobile devices by wiping data remotely or even shutting off access to the device.

But Absolute Software says its Computrace Mobile Theft Management (MTM) program is the first iOS “loss management and theft recovery” solution available today.

The service has two main components: loss prevention and theft recovery. The loss prevention program gives customers tools to implement best practices within their organization and among their users that Absolute says will help ensure the iOS devices are handled responsibly. 

The theft recovery component is an [...]

Revel doubles down on security for iPad point-of-sale solution

May 7, 2013

San Francisco start-up Revel Systems today refreshed its iPad point-of-sale solution for restaurants, grocery and retail chains, and most of the improvements appear to be on improving security.

Revel 2.0 comes with a number of handy new tools but the most eye-catching is the company’s patent-pending, photo-based identity theft protection feature, which shows an image of the card holder on the iPad's screen when their card is swiped.

"At Revel we spend a lot of our time thinking about and trying to stay one step ahead of security for mobile point-of-sale transactions, while keeping ease-of-use front and center," said Revel CTO and co-founder Chris [...]

1 in 4 enterprises will have their own app store by 2017; BYOA is now ‘as important’ as BYOD

February 13, 2013

In a new study, the research firm says that enterprises will increasingly turn to these app stores to control the apps their employees are using, especially with the bring-your-own-app (BYOA) trend now deemed to be “as important” as bring-your-own-device (BYOD).

"Apps downloaded from public app stores for mobile devices disrupt IT security, application and procurement strategies," said Ian Finley, a research vice president at the company.

"Bring your own application (BYOA) has become as important as bring your own device (BYOD) in the development of a comprehensive mobile strategy, and the trend toward BYOA has begun to affect desktop and web [...]

New Zealand to deploy 3,900 tablets and 6,000 smartphones to police officers

February 13, 2013

New Zealand IT administrators have been working with AirWatch and Vodafone to secure the mobile deployment over the past year, with the end result being that the police force is now using AirWatch’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution to manage more than 10,000 devices.

The deployment will see 6,086 frontline staff receive smartphones by mid-April, while 3,900 Vodafone tablets will be given to staff that “need to do more complex data entry as part of their job”.

All mobile devices will give officers access to ‘eQuip’– the app which allows them to tap into the police database to submit and manage search enquiries, a mobile [...]

Intel invests in mobile application management vendor Apperian

January 24, 2013

Apperian wouldn’t say publicly how much the world’s largest chipmaker has invested in the company, but added that additional capital has come from firms including Bessemer Venture Partners, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and North Bridge Venture Partners. That takes Apperian’s total funding to date to $28 million.

Boston-based Apperian, a sponsor at the forthcoming Tablet Strategy West conference, said in a statement that 2012 was a “landmark” year for the vendor, with the company enjoying a 276% increase in its subscription business. The company put this down to rapid adoption of its Enterprise App Service Environment (EASE), which [...]

2013 To Do for IT Departments: Embrace BYOD [video]

December 24, 2012

Though BYOD is thought of as an end-user trend, Michael Rothrock, co-founder and VP of mobile information management company Iongrid, told attendees at the recent TabletBiz conference that it's also being driven by IT departments at many firms.

Rothrock said the CTO of a large semiconductor manufacturer told him that his goal was to become fully BYOD. “He said, and I quote, ‘I don’t give people cars so they can drive to work, why should I give them computing devices?' There’s a lot of data to back up why that’s a good idea."

MDM is dead; long live Mobile DATA management

December 18, 2012

The mobile device management (MDM) market has seen impressive growth in the last several years, but those specializing in data management are finding opportunities as employees lean on tablets for work. Enterprise requirements are quickly expanding to consider data protection in addition to baseline device controls.

Data protection is particularly important when addressing the security concerns that arise from the corporate use of tablets because of their utility as both data display (e.g. sales presentation) and data collection (e.g., health care providers collecting patient data) tools.

From a security perspective, traditional baseline requirements at the device level [...]

Forget BYOD, MDM experts say businesses should focus on securing just the corporate data

November 28, 2012

NEW YORK — Senior figures from Zenprise, ionGrid and Apperian dispelled some of the myths of mobile device management at the TabletBiz conference yesterday, and also gave out some advice on how organizations can control  personally-owned and corporately-deployed tablets.

Andy Thompson, director at MDM and mobile app management (MAM) vendor Apperian, urged enterprise to take ‘full control’ of devices but said that mobile security will increasingly shift from device to app.

“We hear a lot of conversation about [mobile] security, but the focus now is on securing the app,” said Thompson.
