Identity in Mobile Security

Take a new identity-based approach to mobile security, strong enough for enterprise apps

Take a new identity-based approach to mobile security, strong enough for enterprise apps

 

The ubiquity of mobile devices has required enterprises to adopt a new security model. In the age of mobile apps and BYOD (“bring-your-own-device”), enterprises can no longer rely on securing the enterprise perimeter in the traditional way. User identity has become the basis for controlling access to enterprise information assets.

This white paper looks at security gaps in mobile applications, reviews recent threats that have affected millions of users and provides an overview of app security challenges. It proposes a new strong-but-simple approach to mobile app security, which allows apps to access sensitive data without compromising enterprise security.
