It is believed that this year the emphasis will be more on creating a secure platform which allows the businesses to run multiple applications in a protected environment.

Endpoint Security Back In Fashion

Last, but not the least, it is widely speculated that the industry is all geared up to bring back endpoint security. Going by the lines of old is gold; the professionals are keen on using devices such as PCs, laptops and smartphones for endpoint security. The main reason for the comeback of this trend is to enable some form of incident response process, as deployments of endpoints makes the process quicker and convenient.

It is important that enterprises play a highly proactive role in order to manage the impact of arrangements resulting from the endpoint source and ensuring as much visibility, familiarity and control as possible. The basic principle that works behind Enterprise Mobility Management is to make working environment flexible and increase employee productivity. In this endeavor; the data security was somewhere overlooked in the past couple of years. However; in coming years professionals are all geared up to enhance the security and make the enterprise mobility fool-proof.
