MobileIron, a provider of mobile device management solutions, stated that it will be hosting a webinar entitled, “Conversations” about the hidden risks of enterprise mobility, as well as lessons learned as a Fortune 200 CISCO.
MobileIron was created in order to successfully implement smart devices into daily business practices within the enterprise. As tablets and smartphones are quickly becoming the primary way to communicate within personal communications and business-related activities, cost, risk, and usability challenges have arisen that traditional mobile device management strategies do not have the functionality to support. MobileIron offers a solution to this problem for IT, finance, and end-users by moving smartphone data to the enterprise cloud.
According to a press release, this exclusive and informative MobileIron webinar will feature Craig Shumard, chief information security officer (CISO) of CIGNA from 1999 – 2010 and Serge Beaulieu, director of IT Security technical strategy at CIGNA from 2006 – 2010. This webinar will take place on Wednesday, June 1, from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. PDT
Craig and Serge will highlight the risks and benefits of enterprise mobility and apps. In addition, critical issues that senior IT and security professionals must pay a great deal of attention to such as smartphones and tablets will be discussed in detail.
Some topics for this “Conversations” webinar include: the potential impact of mobile apps on security, the rise of Shadow IT, best practices on building a mobile IT and security organization and crucial transitions in traditional security approaches to support mobile.Participants that attend this session will also have the opportunity to ask Craig and Serge any questions that may arise due to the abundance of information.
