The rapid pace at which mobile technologies evolve requires regular reevaluation of a mobility program to ensure it is accomplishing its security, privacy, and workplace functionality. Built-in mobile protections may not be enough to fully mitigate the security challenges associated with mobile information systems. Usability, privacy, and regulatory requirements each influence which mobile security technologies and security controls are going to be well-suited to meet the needs of an organization’s mobility program.
The goal of the Mobile Device Security: Corporate-Owned Personally-Enabled (COPE) project is to provide an example solution demonstrating how organizations can use a standards-based approach and commercially available technologies to meet their security needs for using mobile devices to access enterprise resources.
The sample solution details tools for an enterprise mobility management (EMM) capability located on-premises, mobile threat defense (MTD), mobile threat intelligence (MTI), application vetting, secure boot/image authentication, and virtual private network (VPN) services.
This project is the first in a series of builds that will focus on Mobile Device Security for Enterprises. The second build, Mobile Device Security: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), is in development.
