Speech Topic & Synopses
Addressing Mobile Security in the Enterprise

In this session, Juniper Networks will discuss how enterprises can define a secure mobile experience by delivering integrated connectivity, acceleration, and security anytime, anywhere. This is crucial as employees are increasing the use of their mobile devices for both personal and work related purposes, exposing companies and themselves to risk of hacker attack.

IT staffs are increasingly being tasked with enforcing consistent endpoint security policies across a wide variety of notebooks, net books, and smart phones, regardless of whether or not they are corporate owned. In addition to establishing secure remote network access, it is important to simplify the process for end users shielding them from laborious, multi-step processes to authenticate and directly interact with the network to establish secure connections. Enterprises must begin securing all points of vulnerability in the network from the network systems themselves to the applications they carry to the smart phones at the network perimeter.
