IBM is introducing services to help businesses create a mobile strategy and build infrastructure that incorporates the goals of CMOs, CIOs, CTOs, and CISOs.
@Mitch, thanks for the post. This is great move my IBM. As you pointed out in your article Mobile is a fast-growing technology and customers will need tools which can make the mobile usage more secure. I am sure these tools/apps created by IBM will definitely help the end users to address those issues.
I agree with Alison, IBM has the ability to flex its own muscle to provide insight into security and mobile data that others cannot. Organizations that are already using IBM to solve big problems are probably the best fit for these services. All too often I think that companies are going to just let the mobile trend build without do much thinking about the impact. That's more of a read and react philosophy that some in IT cannot stand - which is where IBM comes in.
Its a good sgn for mobile tools and services and for the users as well. It will offer many services and the competition will increase. The best thing of getting many big names involved in technology is that the competition will rise and the features will be upgraded with a lower cost.
Fantastic move by IBM to tackle BYOD, something weighing heavily on the minds of IT professionals across the spectrum of industries and organizations of all sizes who want a simple yet powerful way to manage this challenge. This integrated approach sounds like a terrific approach, one that gives employees freedom of choice while simultaneously providing IT professionals with the controls they need to keep organizations -- and their information, applications, and networks -- secure.
New security tools allow networks to make context-based decisions ...
Interesting & heartening to see where security is not always the ultimate trump card, where there is give and take, where there is flexibility tethered to context. I think it's call common sense, yes granted not a common techy buzzword.
