Securing mobile apps in the enterprise
The mobile app has become the endpoint. With the advent of consumerization and BYOD, the number of managed devices began shrinking and that of unmanaged devices continues to rise.
Consequently, device-level protection techniques have slowly given way to new technologies that focus on protecting the apps themselves and the enterprise data they hold.
In this podcast recorded at the Amphion Forum in Munich, Mike Siegel, Mocana’s VP of Products, talks about the challenges of securing mobile apps in the enterprise.
He explains how three popular techniques for addressing the issue of mobile application security work, and why Mocana chose to develop a new one that allows enterprise IT to “wrap” new layers of security into Android or iPhone apps.
