Secure Enterprise Apps only the Start to BYOD Security Policy
If you are one of the growing number of workers who want the ability to use your own device(s) and work from the comfort of your living room or the commuter train or poolside, the increase of business-based apps is only good news. Until recently, apps were designed for primarily for pleasure because that's what our smartphones and tablets were also designed for. Over the last year, however, we saw BYOD explode on the work scene.
Microsoft has taken a lead on security specifically for the BYOD crowd, with acquisitions like mobile security provider PhoneFactor in order to deploy two-factor authentication technology to protect business applications on mobile devices. Now comes time for software developers to move security into enterprise app development.
