Speaker: Garret Grajek

  • Synopsis:

Securing Mobile Apps – that’s the big discussion today. The last couple of years enterprises have been attempting to meet this requirement by deploying client-intensive MDMs (Mobile Device Managers). This has left the apps being utilized by partners, suppliers and customers – completely unprotected. How do we meet the challenge of applying security authentication standards to these un-managed devices. This is what will be discussed/demo’d.

Presentation Break-Out:

Title: Securing Mobile Apps for the Enterprise

I. The Condudrum: Secure the Phone or the App?

II. History: SMS (System Manangement Server) vs WAM
