Security and the Sybase Unwired Platform

Sybase Unwired Platform Article Series - Friday Bonus Article

I always say that before you undertake a mobile project you should think about certain aspects, that should not be left until deployment, So I thought I would interject into my Sybase Unwired Platform Article Series with a Friday Bonus Article...

Both Management & Security are inter-dependant and if not in place, your valuable enterprise mobile asset is vulnerable as soon at it is goes 'on-the-road'. I use the wording valuable, not really due to the cost of the actual device, as that is minor when compared to the corporate applications and data deployed on the device itself.

Think.. What damage could be done if that device & the data within got into the hands of your competition of even worse, someone malicious? Mobile Device Management to anyone serious should mean SECURE management of DATA, DEVICE and APPLICATIONS.

The Sybase Unwired Platform enables companies to...

Develop and manage multiple mobile applications that securely connect back-end data sources to all major mobile device types.

Each component of the Sybase Unwired Platform has its own security aspects, which enable the Sybase Unwired Platform to provide confidentiality and integrity of the data that resides on the mobile devices, in the host systems and as data is exchanged from host system to mobile device.
