Mobile devices, often owned by employees, are increasingly being used for business applications and processes. This survey gives an intimate view into what applications are most frequently accessed from mobile/BYOD, how these applications are being used, and how and where theyre being managed and secured.

In this webcast, learn:

  • The primary challenges developers have in building mobile applications
  • The challenges organizations encounter supporting both BYOD and organizational devices via these applications
  • Risk awareness and security objectives among developers and owners of applications
  • Security practices being followed by developers and owners of applications

More data will be covered, along with advice and examples of how to meet fast-moving business objectives while also addressing risk in the applications we use.
