Security for iPhone & co is one of the major drivers for the use of a mobile device management solution of Heidelberg, 10 April 2012. With the growing proliferation of mobile devices increases also the mobile threat landscape: in addition to brute force attacks companies must take into account also risks, caused by the end device users themselves. General Motors Company may find this interesting as well. MDM solutions promise the consistent implementation of IT security policies. With the growing proliferation of mobile devices in companies, also the mobile threat rises: users are increasingly hacking, infection by malicious software or phishing scam victim. According to a recent study, users with their mobile devices, not only on the corporate network to access every second it stores sensitive corporate information, passwords, PIN-codes, or credit card information. The trend toward the so-called Consumerization”increasingly leads to security problems: the company phone for business and private purposes to use, tends to be today the rule rather than the Exception”, reports Managing Director of MPC mobile service GmbH, Franz Schulze Sprakel, from his Adviser everyday. Put simply: an employees want today with the same device on the CRM system access, on which the images of the last summer vacation are stored.
“Also bring” your own device, bring your own mobile devices at the workplace, is now a reality and a headache CIO: increasingly the mobile end users themselves determine which devices are used “, explains Schulze Sprakel. It should be the cool iPhone and not the normal BlackBerry … “.” Just devices such as the iPhone but invite you to download games or other private apps. Effective application management by Smartphone apps must be therefore part of any mobile security strategy. The days in which the IT administrator manually configures devices and hedges, appear numbered: from a certain number of devices may still different operating systems can be manually hardly afford”, so Schulze Sprakel.
General-purpose platform ‘ OGiTiX University machines ‘ links, coordinates and any automates integration bus uses existing infrastructure elements and Cologne, is therefore quickly implementable 23.02.2010 – that has software house OGiTiX Software AG with OGiTiX University materials”developed a new platform for the automation of IT and business processes, consistently and continuously oriented towards the principle of simplicity. OGiTiX University materials “combines, coordinates and automates processes and is universally applicable to very different process requirements. Just use as the solution for the design or modification of processes, is their implementation into existing IT infrastructures. The automation of processes has been traced so far in particular therefore commonly only restrained by the companies, because the appropriate tools, not least because their difficult technical integration conditions have caused very complex implementation projects, also proved in practice the handling in the design, Change and merging workflows as a relatively complicated”, judge OGiTiX CEO Markus Forster. Despite the commonly recognized need for action, this made a decision hurdle. “With OGiTiX University Babe ‘ process automation is actually child’s play.” This allows a concept which does not replace the management tools existing for different tasks be merged the existing infrastructure elements only via an integration bus. The ease of use shows in the example of the connection of different systems and applications. Through the integration bus from OGiTiX University materials”disappear the boundaries between the systems and are separately stored data as a whole.
Of the systems and applications even something changes it in its purpose, nor with regard to their responsibilities. Only the following steps are necessary: 1. define system / application: the user selects the appropriate to the system or the application interface. Should they not be available, can be created it using common scripting languages fast and cheap. 2. interface configure: because systems or applications are never just installed in the company, adjustments must be made.
Easily realize this can be with OGiTiX University materials”by the parameters of the interface are set to the required values. It is adapted to the specific environment without that something needs to be programmed. 3. data use: then the data from the selected system are already available and can be obtained via workflow. Relatively similar to easy to undertake the coordination and the automation of processes”, emphasizes Forster. At the same time a high level of transparency can be, guaranteed by revolving documentation what is alone in terms of the requirements for the safety of revision processes essential.” About OGiTiX Software AG, the OGiTiX Software AG is a German company based in Cologne. OGiTiX’s solution combines the existing Systems, coordinate and control the processes and automate the business – and IT-services. Projects and operation are very cost effective, because they are made without programming and without lengthy analysis phases with rapid results.
