3. Device Security and Protection of Data
Security is the most important and the most challenging of all the points mentioned here. Heightened security can come only when you ensure that you keep updating your security infrastructure which is mainly the job of your IT partner. You should keep in mind whether your devices are protected at all times especially in these times of new viruses being discovered every now and then.
Jason Tooley, UK Country Manager at Citrix comments that: “One of the main barriers to the adoption of BYOD strategies is the perception that it can lead security risks. Installing apps directly onto personally owned devices can raise security and compliance concerns for CIO that wants to keep corporate information secure – and an IT department that wants to retain control of IT usage.” (Quote Source: www.citrix.com)
With more than 3500 controls being used to heighten security by businesses globally, there are other laws and regulations that need to be kept in mind. The device security and protection of data is one of the main reasons for such impactful journey.
4. Constant Compliance
It is important for businesses to have stability in case of the most emerging trends in technology and thus provide with good security in order to compete with the rest in the market. To provide with constant compliance is an important task for heightened security and thus explains why IT companies should concentrate on providing businesses with constant maintenance and support.
It is important that you as a business don’t violate any state or federal regulations. IT admins must ensure that their data storage is highly secured. Try and incorporate PII (Personally Identifiable information) , social security pins and other passwords as precautions for compliance regulations. This way you can also maintain a track of your activities and the people accessing it your data or track each device on the network. IT admins should make sure they are meet with the problems of passwords, keep the patches updated. It is also very important to keep the communication transparent between the IT department and compliance officers for improvising on the internal audits.

Here are a few insights on enterprise mobility challenges faced by the developers. Coming straight from a very experienced Software Expert Mr. Darji at Helios – who said
“In these times of speedy innovations, in every 6 months we come across new features in OS development leading to a change in development perspective as well as how we design and develop the features for an application. Thus, it becomes very crucial for us to always keep updated in order to provide the best of the solutions. But also this remains the biggest challenge!”
There is always a possibility to build new controls in OS and there remains a scope of deprecating older terms as it will not be useful anymore. Also, we have to be very careful while developing and designing apps as the market witnesses new Smart Phones/ Devices with different screen resolutions, so it is important to meet with those requirements and come up with solutions that are compatible with the every kind of screen resolution.
Coming to the security aspect, it also needs updates like technology upgrade or new OS version upgrade. Adding to the challenges, last but not the least, the privacy policies also keep changing with the changing times and thus it becomes very important to account all these factors while development process. It’s challenging and therefore interesting!
