Secure Mobility: Enabling Next Generation Workforce Productivity

Technology has always ushered in new opportunities for productivity enhancement. Companies that can embrace and exploit technological innovation, particularly its disruptive aspects, typically win in the market or capture market share over those that cannot. Today, a new wave of technological disruption is upon us: the hyper-extension of corporate mobility--enable employees to work from anywhere at any time.

Corporate mobility is not new for enterprises. In fact, remote access and telecommuting solutions have existed for quite some time. But what is new is the astounding rate of change in corporate mobility platforms and the ability for the enterprise to support it, coupled with the fact that the change is being ushered in by employees, not the traditional IT group.

Corporations must embrace mobility to remain competitive and evolve to a new model of efficient workloads. In today's lean economic times, downsizing and global outsourcing are the norm; companies must do more with less. Embracing mobility is in the best interest of corporate organizations as it leads to even greater productivity than what we have achieved with the Internet.

The coming year will bring an even greater explosion in the use of mobile devices. In addition to the increased use of smart phones, there will be a steep increase in the use of tablet/pad computers as additional options (such as Android-based pads and front-facing cameras for videoconferencing) reach the market.

This paper's conclusion is most appropriate in stating "Instead of fighting IT consumerization and the associated flood of new mobile devices, connections, and applications, the enterprise must embrace the mobile environment as a model through which employee and partner productivity and creativity can flourish. Mobility is here to stay, and it is up to IT departments to find a way to consistently enforce security on those mobile devices."

While some of the solutions discussed are specific to Cisco, the paper provides a wealth of information regardless of your exact choice of supplier(s).
