You may be aware that MobileIron introduced 'per user' licensing a couple of years ago. This is a surprisingly powerful way to achieve substantial cost savings for your mobility project, as each user licence can cover up to three assigned devices, yet each user licences costs roughly only 50% more than an equivalent single device licence cost.

The risks posed by inactive (dormant) users present on an organisation's servers are a potential goldmine for malicious attackers but also serve to highlight poor user management processes. Indeed, both the ISO 27001 control framework and the PCI DSS information security standard require organisations to monitor, act, and also report on these inactive users.

Materials costs rose by 4.8% between February 2016 and February 2017. This coupled with a chronic shortage of skilled labour, means construction firms across the UK are reporting increased pressure on margins, leading many firms to absorb these costs in an attempt to stay competitive.

Often we can overlook the need for the right level of skills to successfully administer our EMM software on an ongoing basis. Being trained on your EMM or MDM solution is crucial when dealing with new technology, so that your leading-edge technology stays that way and doesn’t become a bleeding-edge project instead. It will give you the required knowledge needed to install, configure, deploy and manage the solution effectively, but it can also have wide reaching opportunity gains throughout the business.

Once you find an Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution that can manage your mobile estate, secure and manage your endpoints and cloud services, can you just sit back and relax? The answer is probably no.

Network access control is no longer just for performing assessments on known devices before access. You can’t secure what you can’t see, meaning that security starts with visibility of all devices.

Designed to address this, the ClearPass Policy Manager is a comprehensive platform providing users with:

Consider the following: Joe, an engineer, logged into the source code repository at 10pm last night and downloaded 500MB of data. Meanwhile, the new head of the legal team, Sally, has been logging into the network from West London and Dublin—at the same time.


Pete, an analyst, is accessing a critical finance application that he has never used before, and Claire, one of your sysadmins, has been accessing the customer database after normal work hours every evening for the last two weeks.

Devices that are sitting unpowered in user's drawers, lying forgotten at home, or otherwise ignored, represent a direct financial loss to the business and also an opportunity cost in potential productivity gains. How do you recover those devices and repurpose that initial investment?

Earlier this week we wrote about how the emergence of cloud and IoT have shifted security priorities from arbitrary boundaries towards the protection of data.

Like most organisations, we like to think we’re different. We’ve been discussing this again only yesterday at our SMT meeting. Sadly, the reality is that everyone is making the same noise, fighting for mindshare, for that hour of your time, that chat over a coffee. And of course everyone can help you with your cloud and mobility challenges. By that reckoning, with the amount of vendors and resellers in the space, we’ll have this security thing licked sometime this year - right?  Maybe, right after GDPR...
