Speaker: Garret Grajek
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.
Title: Securing Mobile Apps for the Enterprise
I. The Condudrum: Secure the Phone or the App?
II. History: SMS (System Manangement Server) vs WAM
III. Now: MDM vs MAM (Mobile Appplication Managemnt)
IV: Advantage of App-Centric Security (MAM)
- Modifiable Authentication
- No Agent needed
- No update needed of client software for workflow/Auth change
V: Demo of MAM
