The confluence of ubiquitous connectivity, Web-based applications, cloud computing and consumer-driven mobile devices is washing away conventional logic about enterprise security, mobility, and access. With more than two-thirds of businesses now allowing employers to bring their own mobile devices into the workplace and onto the business network, creating a long-term strategic approach to securing and managing these devices, and the applications and data accessed on them, is imperative to enterprise security.
"Planet of the Apps: Survival Guide" will bring together some of the software industry's best minds on the subject of how best to understand and respond to the security challenges such as social networking, consumer-driven mobile device adoption in the workplace (BYOD) and unfettered third party application ecosystems.
