Securing BYOD in the Enterprise Cloud

Let’s not kid ourselves, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has been an issue for enterprises for a while, but historically it was easy to dismiss and control through Employee T&Cs or Codes of Conduct, i.e. “Personal devices are not authorised for use in this company“. That was ok when all the execs has corporate Blackberry’s and those who really, really needed access from home were given RSA key fobs and VPNs.

But now execs are migrating from Blackberry as fast as Canada’s butterflies, so suddenly the attitude to BYOD has shifted and the IT departments are left wondering how to manage all those pesky iPads that their management are insisting on using.

In this article they talk about Securing BYOD in the Enterprise Cloud, however one thing seems to be missing entirely – how to secure email across all these devices – and seeing as email is still the most widely used communication tool in the enterprise, one that continues to hit the news for leaked, lost and hacked data, it seems to be quite an omission.

    1. This design looks smaewhot similar to the PublicApp (DMZ) FW PrivateData design that has been used by Enterprises for many years, except now you’re moving the PublicApp to a cloud provider. So the value of the cloud provider is a lower-cost and more scalable way to handle the front-end requests on the app, correct?
