A mobile enterprise has to support pervasive access so employees can get the applications and services they need to do their jobs. But the enterprise also has to enforce security policies and meet compliance demands, which can be extraordinarily difficult when workers are switching among laptops, tablets and smartphones to access corporate apps and data. This panel will examine how IT can meet the competing demands of access and enforcement, support worker productivity and protect the enterprise.

Users have embraced mobile devices and online services because they amplify productivity and make it easier to get work done, whether it’s in the office, on the road or at home. Companies benefit from always-on employees, but companies also have to balance security and compliance requirements. It’s a tricky task.
This session will examine how IT must rethink policies and practices to better align them with today’s realities, and move from a posture of rigid control to moderated enablement. Kiley will offer practical suggestions for supporting user productivity, while also satisfying security demands to keep corporate content secure. The discussion will highlight tools that can help IT straddle the competing demands of always-on employees whose mobile work lives and personal lives are converging.
