“Technology is radically re-shaping today’s workforce. How can companies tap into unprecedented opportunities for transformation without putting their critical information at risk? BoxWorks 2015 is all about reconciling this tension and channeling it into innovation.” —BoxWorks 2015
This week in San Francisco, hundreds of tech innovators, mobile security experts and corporate IT leaders gather together to take on what is arguably one of the most important questions in the modern technology era: How do I empower my workers to be more productive anytime, anywhere and on any device without putting my business at risk?
The event focuses on helping corporate IT leaders connect directly with innovative software and technology companies—a mobile who’s-who that includes Box, Cisco, Microsoft, Apple, AirWatch by VMWare and many more—to collaboratively develop strategies for empowering worker productivity in the new mobile era without jeopardizing data security. For the founding members of the innovative ACE program, BoxWorks 2015 signals another step toward a mobile, secure and productive workforce.
Embracing Mobile Beyond the Device
Earlier this year, leaders in enterprise application enablement launched ACE (App Configuration for Enterprise). The groundbreaking program signaled the beginning of an open-standard approach for managing and securing apps deployed via enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. Founding members AirWatch, Box, Cisco, Workday and Xamarin join more than 40 enterprise mobility leaders in tackling common security and usability challenges that organizations face when deploying apps across the enterprise.
ACE benefits developers and enterprises by:
- Automating first-time setup with app configurations
- Securing app connectivity with per-app tunneling into corporate networks
- Establishing single sign-on parameters to alleviate painful, multiple user login requirements
- Empowering access to native apps only on secure, compliant devices with access control
- Preventing data leakage with a flexible set of security policies including “open in” and copy/paste controls
- Wiping corporate data remotely from lost or stolen devices
