We must be proactive in securing the mobile enterprise.
Columbia, MD (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
With a million new smartphones and tablets hitting the streets each day, the growing threat these powerful little computers create for organizations is nearly unfathomable. On Wednesday, November 7 at tech confab “the Influencer Series” in Menlo Park, California, longtime security executive, Cleve Adams, will be discussing the destructive threat personal mobile devices presents and what business leaders can do about it. Adams is CEO of AirPatrol Corporation, a leading provider of advanced mobile device security systems.
Mobility isn’t going anywhere and the “internet of things” is one of the biggest trends that Gartner predicts for 2013. This idea that everything will be connected to the internet in one fashion or another introduces heightened challenges for the booming “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) culture. Adams will focus his roundtable discussion on the topic of mobile security.
“We must be proactive in securing the mobile enterprise. Gartner predicts that BYOD will become a mandatory policy in enterprises; we must be prepared with innovative and efficient solutions,” Adams said. “It’s been said that we must skate to where the puck is going to be, but that puck in cybersecurity is invisible - it’s not so simple.”
Adams’ extensive background in enterprise management, security and technology software with companies varying from start-ups to security giant Websense will lead the conversation through a variety of scenarios. Adams’ plans to disrupt the predicted course of destruction left by enterprise mobility will be discussed at the roundtable as well as possible solutions using currently available technologies.
