Why Read This Report

As enterprise mobility strategies have shifted from simple bring-your-own-device (BYOD) support to the rapid enablement of a digital workforce, mobile security strategies have naturally shifted from a focus on securing the device itself to securing the sanctioned and unsanctioned mobile applications that employees use to best win, serve, and retain customers. Today, an effective mobile security strategy must prioritize the security of the dozens, even hundreds of mobile applications in use in the enterprise. Two of the most popular solutions, application wrapping and containerization, provide different approaches to mobile application security, and they each offer very different employee experiences and results. In this report, we assess the mobile application security technology choices available to the enterprise today and help security and risk (S&R) professionals make the right choice given their organizational requirements and the ever changing solution landscape.
