RE: How To Keep Enterprise Mobile Apps Secure
Great post Andrew! This detailed coverage on the basics of mobile app security will hold good for years to come. to add to your views, while developing the mobile strategy, it is advised that enterprises define assets and how mobile apps use these assets, identify and prioritize potential threats and enforce sound app security processes to prevent unauthorized code manipulation. A sound MAM and MDM strategies will only help to an extent. If you are looking for an absolute solution, follow the suite of Intel and SAP, implement private app stores.

re: How To Keep Enterprise Mobile Apps Secure
Great article! But I am wondering if the CIO/IT admin has the time/budget to carry out all these steps before rolling out a mobile program. And what about BYOD, where lots of these might not be possible to enforce (e.g. anti-malware on devices, MDM, device authentication)?

Isn't something simpler possible where the TCO and time to value is much lower? And what about user privacy. Is (s)he giving in to corporate controlling his/her device, the way the desktop/laptop was?

(We at Armor5 tend to believe we have a solution to these, but will like to hear from author and others if these are also points of consideration).

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
