New White Paper: Enterprise Security in a BYOD World

Smartphones have become ubiquitous in the workplace, and while they have helped boost employee productivity and mobility, they present a brand new set of enterprise security challenges. We know that security is at the top of your mind. Drawing upon the years of conversations we've had with our enterprise clients, we have released a new whitepaper highlighting the essential concepts of enterprise security, and discussing how Lua uses the latest in mobile and data center security to protect our clients’ data.

As more employers move towards a bring your own device (BYOD) policy they expose themselves to additional data risk. In a study published by Raytheon, more than half of employees surveyed said they had used their personal mobile device to access business applications, and this number will likely increase as more and more businesses implement a BYOD policy. More alarmingly, a report from the Ponemon Institute showed that 71% of employees have access to company data they should not. With multiple ecosystems and a growing number of device manufacturers, developing a robust mobile security policy is becoming increasingly difficult. In fact, in the same Raytheon report, 30% of IT practitioners responded that they have no mobile security features in place. With many companies being targeted with malicious attacks on a daily basis, mobile enterprise security is a critical need.

Lua has helped numerous clients up their mobile communication game, but more importantly we’ve done this while addressing critical security concerns at all levels. At the app level, data is segmented by network and user, allowing for precise permissions to prevent data from being seen by those who should not. At platform level, Lua adheres to security protocols trusted by the Department of Defense to ensure that data is protected both at rest and in transit. Quality is a top priority and the ecosystem is routinely tested for vulnerabilities. And at the data center level, Lua uses state of the art physical facility security and follows industry best practices of Multiple Availability Zones to minimize the impact of network outages or natural disasters.

Read our latest whitepaper for additional information and in depth explanations of how Lua addresses enterprise mobile security. Whether you are an IT professional, C-suite executive, or department manager, we hope it will give you a better understanding of how to protect your company’s sensitive data in today’s mobile world.
