Research/White Papers
    “All mobile devices have inherent security risks associated with their use, no matter who made the device or what Operating System
    (OS) powers it. With the massive growth of Android in the enterprise over the past couple of years, it’s time to see if there is more
    that can be done to make it secure. Companies can create a strategy to minimize any risk Android may pose.”
    “We estimate that only 5%-10% of business clients currently deployed have enabled a wireless broadband modem connected to a
    wireless data service. Often, this is because companies assume that the added expense of modem-installed equipment, and the
    recurring monthly service cost are not a good investment. However, our analysis shows that companies can achieve as much as
    $8400 productivity benefit per employee per year by enabling wireless broadband connectivity.”
    “PCs, including business clients, get hacked at an alarming rate. And most infiltrations result in significant data breach exposures
    costing organizations potentially massive expense. But the majority of these hacks can be eliminated by dealing with the PC’s
    “Identity Crisis”. And that’s not the only benefit. Updating to eliminate this “Identity Crisis” can result in a typical return on
    investment (ROI) of up to 536%.”
    “Mobility has brought a new mode of operation to most organizations, empowering workers to achieve productivity improvements
    that more than compensate for any costs associated with deployment and support of the mobile workforce. Yet despite the ease of
    acquisition and deployment of mobile devices, most organizations still struggle with mobile app development and deployment…The
    age of mobility demands a totally new focus around worker enablement. Devices are extraordinary easy to obtain and utilize by
    mobile workers. But the world of apps has lagged behind…. Successful organizations must find a way to establish a process where
    immediate LOB requirements can be converted into useful mobile apps in a short period of time and with “good enough”
    functionality to maximally empower mobile users…”
    “The transition to Mobility has enabled workers to stay connected to corporate systems through a vast array of device types and
    wireless connectivity options while increasing productivity and becoming more customer-centric...The increasing use of mobile
    devices and apps, often selected by the end user without IT involvement, has created a mobile security blind spot threatening how
    organizations protect their most valuable assets – their data.”
    “Within the next 1-2 years, we expect the majority of worker interactions with corporate back office systems to take place over mobile
    devices... Most organizations have done an inadequate job of preparing for the security challenges associated with this paradigm
    shift…This report will examine the security implications and issues… and will suggest some solutions to the organizational
    imperative to support a wide array of mobile devices while maintaining a strong security and compliance posture”
    “Smaller businesses often keep their PCs in production for many years past their prime, replacing them only when they fail. Indeed,
    the notion that PC replacements are a major headache and expensive is quite common and many companies simply accept this as
    fact. Yet much of this is legacy thinking. Many of the assumed challenges to upgrading to a new PC have largely been mitigated by
    modern machines and process improvements. The ability to enable workers to get their jobs done more quickly, in a more secure
    fashion, and with a substantially reduced burden on support services makes deploying newer machines advantageous for any
    “Many enterprise-class systems ship with vPro enabled chips. We believe that the new version of Intel vPro on 4th generation Core,
    enhanced by a focus on end user productivity and the addition of business-class Atom support, will significantly increase its
    acceptance and deployment… Enterprises should evaluate how the new functionality of vPro fits into their requirements and
    enhances their end-user experience...”
    “The incredible growth of mobile workers has forced many enterprises to consider how to best empower their employees to be
    connected and productive while in the field. Most have deployed applications to smartphones over the past several years.
    Organizations are now enabling users with more feature and information rich tablets. This paper will focus on what enterprises
    should consider when evaluating and deploying tablets to their mobile workforce”
