Why Wearables May be a CIOs New Nightmare

Posted on Fri, Jan 09, 2015

It’s hardly news to CIOs and other IT professionals that smartphones are an integral part of everyday life for most working adults. But it was still a bit of a shock when Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer stood up at the 2014 World Economic Forum in Davos to cite research that the average person now checks their smartphone a staggering 150 times a day.

Shortly thereafter, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff showed the FitBit device he said had helped him lose 30 pounds, and noted that “I lost 30 pounds wearing the Fitbit; I do 10,000 steps a day. But here’s the amazing thing: Last week I got a call from Michael Dell. He asked if I’m feeling okay. ‘Why?’ I asked him. ‘I’m worried about you,’ he said, ‘because I’m your friend on the Fitbit network and noticed you hadn’t worked out in the last 3 days and wanted to make sure you’re okay,’ said Benioff.

Securing 3rd Party Mobile Apps: A New IT Challenge

Posted on Wed, Sep 24, 2014

Everyone in IT knows about BYOD – bring your own (mobile) device. But does your company have a policy and procedure in place to deal with BYOA? Employee use of third-party cloud application services and consumer applications in the workplace is one of the biggest challenges facing IT right now.

According to a recent report from Gartner, this is trend represents such a challenge because more than 75% of mobile apps fail basic security tests. Employees download from app stores and use mobile apps that can access enterprise assets or perform business functions, and many of these apps have little or no security assurances. Well-meaning employees can easily expose themselves to cyberattacks and violations of enterprise security policies.

Does BYOD Make Employees More Productive? Maybe

Posted on Tue, Jul 08, 2014

Are employees more productive using their own smartphone or tablet as part of a BYOD program? That’s long been a tricky question for CIOs, but CIO.com staff writer Tom Kaneshige answered the question in an article published over the weekend.

Quoting from a survey by BMC Software, Kaneshige says that the average BYOD-carrying employee works an extra two hours and sends 20 more emails every day. One out of three BYOD employees checks work email before the official start of their work day, between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. Three out of four IT managers claim, "BYOD is a big productivity boost."

Top Mobile Security Solutions Lock Down Data Not User Access

Posted on Thu, Jul 03, 2014

Is your EMM solution complete? It’s not a question most IT managers really think much about. After all, enterprise mobility management (EMM) is defined as an all-encompassing approach to securing and enabling business workers' use of smartphones and tablets.
