Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Mobile Security: From a Management Perspective

Welcome to a growing market! By 2013 there will be a penetration grade of mobile devices of 112,46%, this means that every person will have 1.13 mobile devices. This indicates that there is a bigger and faster growing market ahead of us than the Internet (e-business, e-banking, e-payments, etc). Mobile penetration will be higher than desktop penetration by 2013. Mobile business is getting more and more important by the day.
Today mobile suppliers, developers and implementers are mainly looking at functionality and features. Their mobile challenges are: network connectivity, battery life, bring your own device (byod), commingling personal and business data, ownership & revocation and costs. But where is the security challenge? Everything has to go fast, anywhere, anytime and anyhow, but are we still aware of the insecurities, risks and threats?

Steven Ackx is a director of PwC Technology with extensive experience in Operational Risk Management, IT Security, Information Security and Mobile/Payments. He has been involved in projects on a strategic, tactical and operational level.
Today he is leading the PwC Technology offering on Mobile Security and is involved in Mobile Business/Payments.
He started his career in the Media/Movie-theatre sector, where he worked on the introduction of new technologies, like e-payments, e-ticketing and e-business. After this he joined Ubizen where he continued his career starting as a security pre-sales consultant/engineer. Two years later he was promoted to technical product manager of two high-volume security products, which were developed in-house by Ubizen, the EasyPayment and MultiSecure products (DMZShield and TrustedChannel). After being a technical product manager at Ubizen for more than two years, he worked for Ascure as an Information Security Consultant, Operations Director and Director Ascure Academy.

  • ESM: Accelerate IT and Business Service Autonomy Recorded: Nov 19 2020 59 mins
    Vesna Soraic, Product Marketing Lead, Micro Focus & Travis Greene, Sr. Director of ITOM Product Marketing, Micro Focus
    The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed all businesses towards delivering new digital services. Analysts predict accelerated digitization by three to four years. As we recover, returning to the old normal is insufficient – we must use this disruption to give business and IT users alike the autonomy they crave to get work done.

    In recent years, leading companies have been adopting Enterprise Service Management (ESM), starting with an enterprise service desk and progressing to automated service delivery and support for non-IT services. But ESM is not just implementing ITSM concepts into HR, facilities and other corporate functions. It is about giving users the freedom to work the way they work best.

    For that to work, your ESM approach is going to need a level of automation and AI that exceeds the pre-pandemic old normal. Join our webinar to learn how to:

    • Create a single, enterprise service catalog with automated fulfilment, including public cloud services
    • Act on every enterprise service request without building technical debt with entirely codeless workflows
    • Automate your processes with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) across teams, tools and environments
    • Leverage embedded AI to deliver more resilient services, everywhere
    • Create the business case for ESM

    Register now and find out how enterprise service management can help your business adapt to the new normal with resiliency for the future.

    Que Mangus, Barbara Ballard and Mike Mackes, Micro Focus
    When it comes to security organizations want to be sure that their systems are protected. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a key control to ensuring that only authorized individuals access your critical assets, including the mainframe. Where mainframe organizations struggle is extending enterprise security control to mainframe applications. The practice of separate authentication should be reevaluated, the mainframe must be integrated with enterprise security controls.

    • Hear real world examples
    • See a live demo
    • Learn how customers are using MFA for both the enterprise and mainframe applications

  • Analytics Accelerate (Securely) into the Cloud Recorded: Nov 3 2020 61 mins
    Sid Dutta and Rich Gaston, Micro Focus Voltage
    Today, every enterprise is a data company, collecting, storing, and processing high-value data for insights and innovation. But traditional IT is not flexible or scalable enough to manage the explosion of data at rest, in transit, and in use in analytics platforms and data lakes. Forward-looking enterprises are using data-centric security to protect privacy and unleash the power of secure analytics.

    With the expansion and overhead of IT infrastructure, the cloud becomes an easy choice for its virtually infinite scale, on-demand provisioning, high availability, and many other advantages. But frequent data breaches in the cloud mean security and privacy concerns are also increasing – and presenting barriers to rapid cloud adoption.

    Learn how businesses are removing the obstacles to data protection and privacy in the cloud. Join us for this webcast to understand how to:
    • Simplify the acceleration of analytics into cloud environments through cloud-agnostic, data-centric protection
    • Provide faster decision support and add business value while dramatically reducing the risk of data breach and privacy non-compliance in multi-cloud deployments
    • Take advantage of native cloud services for ETL, object storage, streaming, data lakes, visualization, data discovery, catalog, and other services – all seamlessly integrated with data-centric security
