    Overview

    Its official – there are more mobile devices than people in the world. Most of you would be carrying multiple mobile devices with you for different reasons. One of the reason would be to keep the corporate data on a separate device. Some people want to just access the corporate enterprise resources on their personal mobile phones. Usually enterprises provide VPN to gain access and secure the private information. In this fast-changing world, this does not prove to be the safest option. For example, other apps on the device can use the same VPN tunnel to enter into the corporate network. Another important factor is the usability experience. People go for trending operating systems on their devices for greater user experience which is hampered by adhering to the corporate policies on the phone even for personal use.

     

    Oracle Mobile Security Suite
