Here are five areas you should pay special attention to when it comes to mobile device governance, device access to enterprise data and BYOD.
Assumption on Security
The NIST recently released its first best practices for approaches to centralized mobile device management. It begins with developing basic but important threat models, which enterprises too often assume are already taken care of by in-house security initiatives or standing rules on mobile devices. NIST says to build out models for devices offered as part of the devices messaging service and a third-party offering that may work across different device brands. This foundation will help handle the necessary installation and upgrades of third-party mobile security applications that involve significantly more effort than with traditional computers and systems.
