BYOD by the numbers: BYOD can deliver productivity and satisfaction with cost savings

This infographic, based on a recent survey conducted by Intel and ReadWrite, seems to indicate that CIOs view BYOD in productivity and user satisfaction terms over cost savings; but it does not have to be this way …

New study shows BYOD growing ever more popular

A new research study by Research and Markets published today shows how Bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives continue to gain momentum in the enterprise.  Bring your own device programs aim to permit personal mobile devices in the workplace to access corporate systems and applications, like email and other enterprise systems.

The Research and Markets BYOD study is based on an extensive survey of enterprise organizations around the world and indicates that as many as 65% of organizations will have adopted some level of BYOD by the end of 2013 and only 11% not having any plans for BYOD in the future.

BYOD has its critics, who highlight security concerns and spiralling costs, with a typical native mobile strategy requiring the purchase or development of applications for each mobile platform and necessitating an additional Mobile Device Management (MDM) infrastructure layer to manage mobile devices and applications.

BYOD – a new way
With the rise of HTML5 as a standard, the costs of developing cross-platform mobile applications are plummeting  but many developers are still publishing HTML5 web applications with native application ‘wrappers’ so that they can be accessed via public or private app stores and installed on mobile devices.

Azurati Mobile Portal - HTML5 Mobile App Container

A new breed of mobile solutions, like Azurati’s Mobile Portal™, an HTML5 application container solution, aims to provide secure BYOD at a fraction of the total cost of providing and managing a native application environment.  Azurati does this by providing a secure mobile portal environment that, when authenticated, provides users with all of their approved corporate mobile web applications in one location; without the need for Mobile Device Management infrastructure layers.   Access to the Azurati Mobile Portal container is granted based on the user’s job function or role, allowing apps to be granted based on personal requirements and access to the Mobile Portal environment can be cut instantly if the employee leaves the business or if the mobile device is misplaced.

iOS 6.1 lock-screen bypass is seriously bad news – for native application developers

OK, so the news today that IOS devices can be hacked by following a now publicly available procedure to enable a user to bypass the iPhone and iPad password lock is seriously BAD news … particularly for companies who are looking to deploy IOS devices as part of an enterprise BYOD initiative to access corporate mobile applications.

It should be plainly obvious why letting an unscrupulous hacker into your ‘secure’ IOS device will be seen as a major security risk, particularly if your device includes applications that have auto-log on functions and can access sensitive corporate content or data.

Luckily, there is salvation for IOS users who want to have access to enterprise mobile applications

Azurati’s HTML5 Mobile Application Container solution, called the Azurati Mobile Portal, provides enterprise users with a secure virtual mobile desktop where approved corporate mobile applications can be accessed and launched, once authenticated, securely.

Users authenticate to the Mobile Portal container environment using any one of 15 supported authentication methods, including Active Directory Federated profiles (ADFS), 2-factor authentication, third party Identity Management solutions, as well as via third party providers, like Windows LiveID, Google or Yahoo profiles.  Once authenticated, users will be able to launch HTML5 web applications from the Mobile Portal container with single sign-on.

If you are an IOS user and you are concerned about Apple’s IOS screen-lock bypass issue and you would like to evaluate Azurati’s secure HTML5 Web Application Container, contact sales@azurati.com and we will be happy to arrange a demonstration and trial.
