A Secure Framework with Mobile Security Services
The globalized business world with its highly networked environment makes use of the best of the breed
technology solutions and world class infrastructure to cater to the requirements of a widespread workforce and
large customer base. Nevertheless, such technology growth also paves way for challenges for the global
enterprises in the form of anytime and anywhere access as well as security to the business critical data.
Mobility is a blessing to the workforce in times of globalization. Not only does it save on time and energy for the
individual but also reduces the cost of operations, time to market for the products and services and ensures
business continuity. Technological inventions such as laptops and smart phones and remote desktop access
solutions have provided the required mobility. However, the security of the vital data lurks largely on these
organizations as their network is pushed beyond boundaries. The use of mobile security solutions and security
tools help organizations face such issues.
Further, with the development teams being continuously challenged with security issues, enterprises make use
of various automated security and network penetration testing tools as part of the software development
lifecycle. Since this does not give much relief from the security vulnerabilities, the organizations look for a more
risk management framework that will facilitate data protection as well as application security.
Though mobile computing has become a reality, the loss of critical business data and customer data may lead to
big losses for the enterprises. One way to manage through these risks is to implement risk management
frameworks and educate the workforce on secure application development methodologies. Leading IT
organizations help enterprises identify and protect data by building a security framework. The effective design
strategies and secure software security patterns ensure application security.
However, the errors in application development, design flaws, failures in the protocol and mobile infra
components can have a negative impact on the security status. Further the increase in remote desktop access
through mobile devices makes security breaches inevitable. Thus mobile security services for these enterprises
should be one that would cater with a holistic view of the situations.
Mobile security services from leading service providers will help enterprises to deploy secure mobile
applications on various platforms enabling mobility to the workforce. Designed to facilitate the clientele with
secure data storage, this solution takes the data securely through various protocols while reducing software re-
engineering and compliance costs. By including services such as mobile application security, application store
security, mobile payment and banking security and secure mobile data management the enterprises can control
access, usage and authentication of corporate data.
