Wearable operational video (such as helmet cams), mobile cameras and sensors, and other visual technologies can provide crucial intelligence, which then can be gathered, communicated to personnel in disparate locations, and integrated to enable unified collaboration for public security responses. The possibility is emerging for a new generation of video applications that will enhance public security and disaster management.
Wireless technology surrounds us — in the workplace, at home, and many places in between. Mobile phones, WiFi networks, wireless computer accessories, and cordless phones all use radio transmissions for wireless communication. Even devices not used for communication, such as microwave ovens and lighting systems, emit radio frequency energy that can impact wireless devices. In this crowded radio environment, two technologies have emerged as the standard for wireless voice communication in UC and enterprise applications.
Emerging technologies empower, but they can also confuse. Workers in the new mobile landscape struggle to manage communications with mobile phones, landlines, VoIP calls and different voicemail boxes, email, IM, text messages and social networking applications. Unified Communications is the answer. It’s the bridge between all these communication systems helping manage communications with one interface.
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.

Enabling the mobile workforce to be productive is the ultimate goal of any mobile business initiative. While the idea that mobile devices like the iPad, Galaxy Tab and today’s leading smartphones can change how users work in the enterprise is well established, the real challenge is how to enable a mobile workforce to have device access to all the different content they need to do their job without having to circumvent security and content governance objective or require users to learn a mix of consumer oriented software tools and work in different user interfaces in order to be productive. Viewing, editing, annotating and sharing content must be available from the same application.
Employees today want more—and they need more—if they’re going to stay productive from anywhere, which is usually the primary goal of having mobile devices in the first place.
The right apps can enhance employee productivity, reduce expenses, and increase profitability which means that the decisions you make about the apps your organization uses are among the most important decisions your organization makes. No pressure, right? Our Mobile Application Development solution brief covers:
Providing support for apps
A revolution is taking place, and it’s happening in every corporate office across the globe. Mobile devices have completely transformed the way we work, and with the increasing capabilities of the next generation of devices, the need to incorporate mobility into your strategic planning is only going to increase.
While the consumer benefits of Apple devices are well known, less attention is paid to their role in an enterprise environment. It’s time to start paying attention. Apple offers a number of features built for business and as the first company approved for mobile deployments by the Apple Consultants Network, Enterprise Mobile has unique insight into these features.
Endpoint security is at a critical juncture. Increasingly, employees
at organizations of all sizes are using a wider variety than ever of
desktop and mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and
laptops, as they work from broadly dispersed locations, including
home offices. Often, organizations are permitting and even
encouraging employees to use their own devices under BYOD
(bring your own device) policies. With these devices, employees
are accessing not only corporate data and applications, but also
social media, banking and shopping sites. Download this white paper to learn more about endpoint security.

How is enterprise security like a commercial airliner? Preventative maintenance and regular, in-depth inspections keep jumbo jets operating safely, and the same approach will protect your enterprise security, too.
When you consider the widespread security vulnerabilities, the massively intertwined application dependencies, the diversity of deployment environments, and the potential device takeover of mobile apps, keeping your applications safe is a mind-boggling job. Traditional manual approaches are no longer practical.
Our exclusive white paper, “Keeping Your Application Fleet Flying Risk Free,” will help you establish the preflight checks and regular inspections that keep the applications in your portfolio running reliably and securely. Download it today.
The rise of mobile applications, the shift from on-premises to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and the reliance on third-party services has increased the complexity application delivery. Online Operations and Site Reliability teams in firms of all types are now responsible for many parts of the application delivery chain. When things go wrong, no matter where, they’re expected to react quickly to minimize the impact on their customers. The challenge for application providers is that users may often experience service degradation when the application stack seems to be working perfectly fine, making troubleshooting extremely difficult.

The emergence of mobile applications has fundamentally changed the way that millions of people around the world work, play, and communicate. Meanwhile, cybercriminals want to infect and exploit as many mobile devices as they can to steal information.
L’une des questions que de nombreux clients se posent récemment est « Comment Office 365 est-il pris en charge par AirWatch ? » Beaucoup se demandent si AirWatch peut contrôler l’accès à Office 365 (O365) non seulement sur leurs systèmes de Bureau d’entreprise mais surtout sur leurs terminaux mobiles.
AirWatch® by VMware® apporte un soutien complet aux organisations qui souhaitent utiliser O365 sur leurs terminaux mobiles. Notre récente intégration à VMware® Identity Manager fournit un cadre de contrôle d’accès adaptatif pour s’assurer que toutes les applications professionnelles, dont O365, sont uniquement consultées depuis des terminaux gérés et conformes.
Il y a moins d’un an, les prévisions des analystes avaient laissé
croire aux fervents défenseurs de la mobilité qu’une catastrophe
allait toucher de plein fouet le secteur de la gestion des terminaux
mobiles. Lors d’un événement réservé aux analystes qui s’est tenu en 2013, un panel de spécialistes indiquait que l’utilisation des terminaux personnels allait aboutir à une réduction des prix et
faire chuter les ventes. Ils annonçaient la mort de cette industrie.
« La gestion des terminaux mobiles est actuellement totalement
chaotique et je pense que ce marché est en train de mourir, »
déclarait l’analyste Gartner John Girard (CRN.com). John Girard
avait prédit une nouvelle orientation dans la gestion de terminaux personnels qui consiste à gérer uniquement les applications pour répondre à la résistance que montraient les employés devant la gestion par l’entreprise de leurs terminaux personnels.
Innovation in business mobility is adding up to opportunity for the enterprise— opportunity to accelerate employee productivity, increase collaboration, and streamline business processes through mobile applications. At the same time, IT organizations are keen to control costs and maintain safeguards around their
corporate information. With the goal of striking a balance between opportunity and control, increasing numbers of IT decision makers are adopting enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions.
But how do you know your organization is poised to make the move to EMM, or if you should be leveraging more from an existing EMM solution? Here are five cues to consider that the time is right to adopt EMM for your organization.

This whitepaper explains how exploding mobile threats challenge mobile device management (MDM) vendors, carriers, service providers, and app stores to ensure the safety of apps. Consumers and customers will hold these companies responsible for providing adequate security, and employees will expect enterprise IT departments to protect them from malicious mobile apps like they have come to expect for PC malware. The report describes how a cloud-based app reputation service protects against the risks of mobile applications in the wild:
• Collects millions of applications from a variety of sources
• Stores mobile app data in the world’s largest cloud-based threat database
• Analyzes and scores apps on a range from malicious (e.g., known malware such as Trojans or root kits) to trustworth
This report, which is the vision report of the mobile app development playbook for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals, focuses on the changes application developers need to understand if they want to build modern applications that deliver contextual customer experiences.
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers. However, mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken website or a screen-scraped application. Rather, mobile is the visible manifestation of a much broader shift to systems of engagement that marry physical context and digital intelligence to deliver service directly into a person's hands. This shift will add value and take cost out of every business service, workflow process, and business application. But mobile engagement will also require wholesale changes to your app design, service delivery, IT skills, technology assets, and even your business model. This report lays out a vision for mobile engagement and introduces the strategic elements developed further in The CIO's Mobile Engagement playbook.
Successful mobile apps, especially enterprise mobile apps, typically need to interact with a well-architected set of back-end services, but most mobile app developers are more skilled at client-side front-end development. Enter mobile back-end-as-a-service (BaaS), a new set of hosted platforms that addresses the gap between front-end development proficiency and back-end infrastructure requirements. Enterprise-class back-end-as-a-service addresses scalability while providing an integration platform into existing enterprise services. Use this research as your guidebook to navigating the emerging BaaS landscape.
Faced with trends like cloud and the rapid rise of mobile devices, IT needs a new, simpler model of building networks to support and optimize applications. In this Lippis Report, learn how the Cisco ISR Application Experience Router helps you improve application speed, security, and control.
