This paper covers some of the critical security gaps today’s mobile-cloud enterprises must address:
• Unsecured devices. Unsecured devices allow users to easily access business data from mobile apps or cloud services simply by entering their credentials into an app or browser on the device. Once on the device, data can be easily compromised or shared with unauthorized, external sources.
• Unmanaged apps. These typically include business apps, such as Office 365 productivity apps, that the user has downloaded from a personal app store instead of the enterprise app store. As a result, these apps are not under IT control but can still be used to access business content once the user enters his or her credentials.
• Unsanctioned cloud services. Most enterprise cloud services have associated ecosystems of apps and services that integrate using APIs. While the enterprise cloud service might be sanctioned, apps and services from its ecosystem might not be.
In the past, desktops, business apps, and critical infrastructure were all located behind the firewall. Today, more and more is happening off-network. More roaming users. More corporate owned laptops accessing the internet from other networks. More cloud apps, mean that users don’t need to be on the corporate network to get work done. And more branch offices connecting directly to the internet.

Traditional identity-based security models
cannot secure your business data from
the latest mobile-cloud threats, including
unsecured devices, unmanaged apps, and
unsanctioned cloud services.
To keep business data secure in the
mobile-cloud world, you need a new
security model that checks the state and
health of devices, apps, and cloud services
before letting them get to your data.

We’re living through a time where people,
organizations and societies not only rely but thrive
upon secure, simple and fast access to information.
From small businesses, startups, enterprises and
global conglomerates across all verticals; to local, state

infrastructure that enable us to drive our collective
Ten years ago, business and technology leaders
catalyzed a cloud app revolution that has changed the
way organizations manage IT. However, through this
transformative shift, the core requirements of IT remain
the same. Technology leaders are responsible for
ensuring that 1) information assets remain confidential
and protected, 2) information systems are available
and operational, and 3) people are empowered and
productive with the apps and information they need.

In this complimentary report, Cloud Sherpas shares results that uncover the shortcomings of the primary, on premise computing devices typically in use today, including extended wait times for users and high maintenance requirements for IT that lead to significant productivity losses for both groups.
These are interesting and challenging times to be in business. Digital forces, such as the cloud, big data, mobility, and mobile apps are disrupting tried-and-true business models, as well as entire industries.
These transformational advances are producing complexity, while workers are demanding simplicity. They require centralized infrastructures to keep information safe, even as agility and flexibility rule the day.

What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
• Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
• Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
• Deploy locally with zero touch via automated
In the Top 5 Reasons Why Enterprises Are Going Google, Cloud Sherpas explores why leading organizations like these have prepared for the digital workplace of tomorrow by moving their email and collaboration platforms to Google Apps for Work, such as:
Eliminating the need to manage hardware or software
Embracing a mobile, BYOD culture

With many enterprises implementing a hybrid cloud environment to move applications to cloud, IT organizations must establish a decision-making framework for evaluating, deploying, and operating applications in the cloud. Businesses need to be able to deliver applications in the right way and on the right cloud, so IT organizations seek insight into setting policies for the best placement of applications across different cloud options. In this report, Gartner offers analysis and recommendations for moving traditional apps to private cloud and for brokering and managing apps across different private and public cloud options.

New research from IBM found that one-third of employees surveyed at Fortune 1000 companies are sharing and uploading corporate data on third-party cloud apps. Why? They’re tired of workplace apps that don’t perform like their personal apps: intuitively, on the go, and with some intelligence.
Saying “yes” might feel good to your teams, but it can also turn your infrastructure into a Beast. You don’t know all the different apps being used, like file sharing or online meetings. Or how much they cost. Or if your content is safe and manageable. Can you give your teams what they want without getting trampled by the Beast?
Yes you can. You can transform the Beast into a Beauty. But you need to consider three critical ways to make that happen.
What if your organization could take advantage of emerging business opportunities by deploying new applications dramatically faster than you ever could before? What if you could increase the value of your existing application investments by leveraging them in the cloud—and easily move your apps across off-premises and on-premises cloud options?
These capabilities are available today. With IBM® PureApplication® solutions, companies can build and use a cloud environment faster, easier and with less risk than traditional methods to better engage with their customers and partners in new ways. The result: increased competitiveness and improved profitability in a changing business landscape. This paper describes a simpler way forward to gain these advantages.

Modern enterprises are rapidly shifting core business processes away from legacy
technologies and standardizing on mobile devices and cloud services. As a result,
these organizations are quickly outgrowing basic mobile device management (MDM)
capabilities and apps like email and calendar. Building a secure mobile and cloud
architecture now requires a comprehensive approach to enterprise mobility management
(EMM). It requires a unified platform with defense-grade security, massive scalability, a
broad ecosystem of technology partners, enhanced Office 365 security, and integrated
desktop and mobile management. And it has to provide all of this without locking
customers into a proprietary technology stack.
