How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Remote Work - IBM Security MaaS360 and Cloud Identity

Whether it’s a document sent over Slack or a game of conference call bingo unfolding on Zoom, telecommuting infrastructure has permeated our working lives. The workplace and classroom have both transformed overnight from cubicles and desks to couches and kitchens.

As employees or students shift to working or learning from home, a diverse range of endpoints need to be managed and protected – including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Cloud applications should also be deployed to support those trends—providing business continuity for organizations while enabling a frictionless experience for users. This is accomplished via unified endpoint management (UEM), identity and access management (IAM), and web-centric threat defense working in concert.

Further, it’s just as imperative to effectively secure those applications and the devices users rely on for access—whether an organization-issued laptop or a personal tablet.

A program like bring your own device (BYOD), while implying usage in the office, is more of a concern at home due to the risks of unsecured WiFi, unauthorized users, risky downloads and web traffic, and the potential for phishing attacks to compromise credentials.

However, those same problems tend to crop up on organization-issued devices as well—typically deemed a more secure asset. Ultimately, regardless of the device, the human behind the machine presents the risk.

Responsible. Compliant. Secure: Enabling always-on connectivity for Windows 10

The lines between mobile and desktop computing continue to blur. Form-factors have converged, enabling more portable devices that can connect to the cloud at any time, from any location.

As organizations seek to support this modern workplace, mobile connectivity becomes critical for connecting employees, contractors, and partners with data and applications. Mobile empowers workers to be productive in new, innovative ways. But it also challenges IT to rethink how services are delivered in an efficient, safe, and cost-effective manner.

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) has emerged as the de-facto configuration and management platform for any type of device. But what about managing the always-on data connections made as users operate outside of the corporate campus?

IBM Security MaaS360 with Watson has partnered with Wandera to offer end-to-end management for the mobile experience, from device configuration to controlling the application usage on Windows 10.

In this video, experts from Wandera and IBM discuss how MaaS360 incorporates robust data controls for Windows 10 to deliver a consistent policy across all mobile devices, including:

  • Flexible data controls that ensure always-on mobile connections are used responsibly to avoid surprise overages on enterprise cellular bills
  • Mobile content filtering that applies category-based policies across applications and browsers to enforce acceptable use

Industry-leading network security features that defend against mobile phishing attacks, third-party app store downloads, and C2 traffic, inside and outside the office.
