Secure Access to your Corporate Data from your Smartphone

In 1992 the first smartphone was presented as a concept product of IBM at the COMDEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was called Simon and sold in 1993 by BellSouth. It already contained the following features: calendar, address book, world clock, calculator, notepad, e-mail, send and reveive fax, games.

18 years later, 4 billion people worldwide use mobile devices. And it's no secret that more and more people (and all generations without any exceptions) make use of smartphones as their mobile devices. Interesting to know that in comparison just over 1 billion use desktop computers.

The age of consumerization

In the age of consumerization protecting corporate data is a challenging game. As Bruce Schneier (a well-known American cryptographer, computer security specialist) points out in his article "Should enterprises give in to IT consumerization at the expense of security?":

The meta-trend here is consumerization: cool technologies show up for the consumer market before they’re available to the business market. Every corporation is under pressure from its employees to allow them to use these new technologies at work, and that pressure is only getting stronger. Younger employees simply aren’t going to stand for using last year’s stuff, and they’re not going to carry around a second laptop. They’re either going to figure out ways around the corporate security rules, or they’re going to take another job with a more trendy company. Either way, senior management is going to tell security to get out of the way. […] Either way, it’s going to be harder and harder to say no.
