Mobile Security Survey: Lack of Awareness Chaos Pervades BYOD

SANS will be hosting a complimentary webcast on April 12, releasing the results to the First Annual Survey on Mobility Security.

In December, SANS launched its first ever mobility survey to discover if and how organizations are managing risk around their end user mobile devices. What SANS discovered was that only 9 percent of organizations felt they were fully aware of the devices accessing corporate resources, while half felt only vaguely or fairly aware of the mobile devices accessing their resources.

"Another interesting note (that aligns with what we saw on the vendor side at the RSA Security Conference in March) is that organizations are reaching for everything at their disposal to manage this risk," says Deb Radcliff, executive editor, SANS Analyst Program. "Among them are user education, MDM (mobile device management), logging and monitoring, NAC and guest networking, and configuration controls."

Fewer organizations (less than 20 percent) are using end point security tools, but of those, more are using agent-based tools rather than agent-less.

    In this interview, sponsored by OpenEye, Eric Fullerton addresses the specific advantages of an open platform solution. He also talks how an end user can streamline operations and reduce cybersecurity risk in the cloud. Reducing the burden on IT will make it easier to manage and maintain video deployments and integrations of all sizes.
