Putting in place holistic mobile security is no easy task for companies. The use of various mobile operating systems, increased private and business use of devices, a growing number of smart devices, a high level of innovative dynamism and new attack scenarios targeting mobile IT result in greater complexity when protecting data. So it is vital that companies face up to securing their mobile devices, apps and information and minimize the risk of information loss through appropriate security concepts and solutions. Comprehensive mobile security must be ensured without compromising users' productivity when they use smartphones, tablet PCs and apps etc.
