LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the hottest IT policies among enterprises, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) has gained sustained momentum and increasing popularity around the world over the past year. According to Gartner's prediction by 2017, about half of the world's companies will enact BYOD programs and will no longer provide computing devices to employees. While BYOD brings tremendous benefits to both individual employees and companies at large, it also brings about challenges and concerns, such as security risks, that hinder its prevalence.

According to a survey conducted by IDC, 61% of enterprises adopting BYOD consider mobile security as their top security concern. Such mobile security concerns are mainly focused on three core aspects: identity, privacy, and compliance. To address these concerns, Huawei launched the AnyOffice Mobile Security Solution -- a vulnerability-free mobile security solution that offers ubiquitous security features, covering a full spectrum of mobile elements, including devices, networks, as well as services and management.
Identity: Effective Authentication and Access Control
Huawei's AnyOffice Mobile Security Solution adopts refined, flexible security authentication and access control policies for user and mobile device identification. By adopting a "5W1H" (Who, Whose Device, What Device, Where, When, and How) matching approach, the solution helps enterprise IT management verify user identity authentication based on individual users, user groups, bandwidth usage, priorities, access time, or network zones. This helps enterprises effectively prevent unauthorized user access or resource misuse, mitigate regulation breach caused by network misuse, minimize information leakage, and protect enterprise core information assets.
Privacy: Ensuring Secure Data Usage, Storage and Transmission
Privacy has been a key consideration for BYOD adoption among companies. Leveraging advanced technologies, the Huawei AnyOffice Mobile Security Solution helps enterprises mitigate privacy concerns by ensuring secure data usage, storage and transmission. For instance, by adopting unique sandboxing technology, the solution separates encrypted corporate applications and data from those of individual users. In addition, in the event when a mobile device is lost or misplaced, the device owner can remotely wipe all data from the device using the Mobile Device Management (MDM) technology empowered by the solution. To ensure secure data transmission, the solution features Layer 3 Virtual Private Network (L3 VPN) and Layer 4 Virtual Private Network (L4 VPN) protection technologies, providing network-layer and application-layer encrypted tunnels respectively, which help to fend off interceptions, tampers and other threats during data transmission.
Compliance: Regulations throughout Mobile Devices Lifecycle
Another key factor triggering security risks when a company goes mobile is policy compliance. Huawei's AnyOffice Mobile Security Solution adopts leading regulatory compliance technologies, which enable establishment of comprehensive compliance management regulations. This ensures that mobile devices are compliant with regulations throughout an Acquire-Deploy-Run-Retire device lifecycle, as defined by the company.
Successful Implementation Reduces Costs and Enhances Operational Efficiency
Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider has been experiencing fast business growth and rapid global expansion over the past few years. Amidst the rapid expansion, Huawei has been facing challenges brought about by its core IT systems. In order to reduce response time and improve operational efficiency of IT systems, Huawei introduced the initial phase of its self-developed BYOD program in 2009. With the implementation of the Huawei's AnyOffice Mobile Security Solution, about 30,000 employees have enjoyed secure global mobile office operations by the end of 2013. This greatly improved average operational efficiency by up to 37 minutes per day, which translated into over US$10 million savings every year. The centralized mobile security management featured in the solution also helped mitigate IT maintenance pressure, resulting in reduced IT operational costs.
Since 2009, Huawei has been rolling out its BYOD program across the whole company, aiming to enhance operational efficiency and eliminate security concerns. According to Huawei's latest BYOD adoption timeline, over 80 percent of Huawei's 150000 employees will be enjoying BYOD by the end of 2015, which is expected to generate a significant increase in cost savings and further enhance the company's productivity.
Constant Changes Ahead
In an era where the evolution of mobile technologies and applications are inevitable, enterprises will need to remain open to the adoption of innovative technologies and undergo constant internal technological enhancements. Foreseeable changes in mobile technologies include device virtualization, emergence of explicit security ratings, shift from BYOD to Bring Your Own Application (BYOA), as well as a focus on Mobile Application Management and Mobile Content Management. To enable seamless management and maintenance of mobile applications and security, Huawei will continue to offer customer-centric one-stop mobile security and virtualization solutions and services, empowering enterprise customers with more flexible and efficient operations, without security concerns.
