Build a business case: developing custom apps

Video Whisper it. The techies have lost control. Partially at least.

The rise of the smartphone, slate/tablet/whatever you want to call it, means that more and more unqualified devices are creeping onto the corporate network.

In our recent broadcast, Many Devices, One Policy, Tim Phillips, Andy Buss and Sasi Myrthy explored how this trend is causing the IT department to pull out its collective hair, especially when it comes to the potential security threats when a business is not prepared for such a change.

Andrew brought along a pile of research he’s done with Reg readers, that covered the problems involved in implementing a single security policy. Sasi on the other hand brought a batch of experience from real projects she’s undertaken in her role at Blue Coat.

So did this panel reveal how a single security policy can work on multiple devices?
