There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.  The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given. And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.

IT organizations are on the brink of a new wave of desktop transformation, with Windows 7 operating system (OS) migrations a critical stop on the journey. These OS migrations are extremely complex and pose real risks in terms of end user downtime, business interruptions, and increased costs. IT needs to ensure migration projects go quickly and smoothly, and that the resulting user environment becomes easier to access and manage.

The workplace has changed radically, and conventional approaches to desktop management and mobile device management (MDM) are no longer adequate for the new digital workplace. Enterprise IT must quickly and dramatically change the way it manages users’ access to digital resources to deliver a consistent experience across all devices, even as operating systems and platforms relentlessly evolve. Fortunately, with the advent of Windows 10, IT now can rethink the way it aligns endpoint management with users’ new digital work styles. Read this UBM whitepaper to learn more about how these seven “musts” can help IT fully leverage Microsoft’s newest operating system to better serve the business.

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices – desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems – to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls. SymantecTM provides a complete endpoint solution powered by the world’s largest civilian Global Intelligence Network (GIN) to help organizations secure their enterprise and mobile workforce across traditional and modern OS devices used over any network and from any location. Read this white paper to find out more.

Corporate data spreads across an ever-growing number of applications. Users (employees, contractors, partners, and customers) access those applications over a wide range of devices. Those devices take different forms: desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches. Each device may use a different operating system. The locations from where people access your data can be on-premises or off, and in any number of places around the globe. Data, users, apps, devices, locations—the sheer number of permutations and combinations is mind-boggling. This complex nature of today’s IT environment opens security gaps and exposes your business to undue risk. To illustrate, try to envision all the permutations and possible entry points for risk in your organization. Imagine that you have 400 users, each using 25 apps. When you multiply those together, that’s 10,000 potential access permissions to manage. Access permissions change as users come and go, roles change, new apps are added, and

Microsoft withdraws support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. Here’s how you need to respond to protect your organization’s information assets. Just after enterprises have finished migrating their desktops from Microsoft Windows XP, they now have to turn around and move away from Windows Server 2003. The venerable (and now vulnerable) operating system reaches end of support on July 14, 2015. But many companies will continue to use the software after that deadline, and that has serious security implications.

Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls. In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot. Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.

The evolution from business connectivity to business mobility is unlike previous compute transitions because it redefines how people work. Historically, companies provided access to the necessary applications and data from corporate-issued devices such as laptops and desktops in controlled operating environments. This tightly integrated environment tethered workers to a specific device and operating system, and even sometimes to a location. Mobility breaks these shackles and enables workers to change the way they work.

IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce. The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.

Due to its nature of open source code, Linux is fast becoming popular and is being deployed in ever increasing numbers on mail servers, corporate networks and desktops. Till recently, systems running on Linux were relatively free from virus and other threats. But with the greater penetration of Linux operating systems, virus authors have begun to target them.

No matter the size of the business, technology plays a critical role in its financial success. At the most basic level, companies have to deal with desktop and laptop computers for all their employees, e-mail, access to the Internet, Blackberries, and other kinds of on-site and remote devices. Add networking issues like viruses, spam and bandwidth utilization, and suddenly, this effort becomes a major challenge to anyone operating a small or mid-sized business (SMBs) with limited resources and a limited budget.
