How Mobile Security Impacts Your EnterpriseNo business or enterprise can afford not to enable mobile access to employees or customers. More and more, people are using mobile devices to interact, and you need to enable them to do this but do you know how mobile security impacts your enterprise? Of course you understand, accessing data through a mobile device brings with it, its own set of security implications. 

We at Onegini recognize that security is a major concern in mobile app development, and provides a security solution in one easy package, to enable businesses and organizations to concentrate on other matters, safe in the knowledge that their systems and data are secure. It’s important to take a look at the potential impacts on your enterprise, and how a solution such as Onegini can help.

 

What potential mobile security implications do you face?

You may be aware of some of the specific security issues that come with opening your business or organization to mobile access. We’re going to take a look at some of the main concerns you’re going to face, if you run a business or organization, and how Onegini helps to address them.

 

The dangers of BYOD

If you’re a business owner, you may be thinking, is BYOD a good idea? BYOD, or bring your own device, is a great idea from a financial point of view. You get to save a significant amount of your IT and telecoms budgets by enabling staff to use their own mobile devices to access business data. Of course, this means that you don’t have the same amount of control over the security of the devices being used.

With the help of Onegini this does not need to be a problem. You get access to an encrypted platform for your apps, which means that you can use whichever method of access security you choose, such as PIN codes and biometrics. Think about how much money this could save you in the long run. If you don’t have this security in place you run the risk of secure data being exposed, which can be damaging to both your finances and your reputation.
