Before I get into blogging about the details of our recently announced Centrify for Mobile, I wanted to show my readers a few screenshots of it in action using my iPhone as an example. In other words, we are using our own internal Active Directory to manage our fleet of mobile devices used by employees.
I am very pleased to announce a major extension of our product line with the beta release today of Centrify Centrify for Mobile. This new cloud-based service lets enterprises centrally secure and manage smart phones and tablets, including iPads and Android devices, using existing Active Directory infrastructure, skill sets and processes to enable easy, rapid deployment combined with enterprise-class scalability. In this blog post I want to tell you why we decided to branch out into mobile and give an overview of Centrify for Mobile.
I posted a new blog post over on my Forbes.com blog entitled “Buckle up with CyberSecurity … It’s the Law.” In this post I discuss how state laws have been on the books for years regarding security breach notification, but newly enacted laws that tighten compliance requirements for data security as well as recent guidance from the SEC regarding disclosing cybersecurity risks and incidents is turning up the heat on companies to improve their security or face significant fines and lawsuits.
