Employee Identity

Focus on securing all mobile applications based on employee identity to reduce the cost and complexity of endpoint management. Use a combination of virtualized secure app and workspace delivery with mobile app management to provide clear security conditions for each person and device that must be met to gain access – including necessary software updates, security measures and compliance with policies. You can then control access to vital data and apps through identity, instead of fighting a losing battle for total device control with your people.

IT security ultimately depends on making sure employees use the appropriate tools and comply with policies designed to protect them and their data/applications. However, many times apart from security professionals, a deeper understanding of the strategy and importance of these policies is overlooked. October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which was created as a collaborative effort between the government and the security industry to ensure everyone has the resources they need to be more secure and aware of threats. This month especially, CIOs, CSOs and security experts focus on educating employees about the importance of security, making sure everyone understands its business objectives, uses the appropriate tools and complies with policies used to keep both company and personal information safe. 

One strategy for security professionals to use to educate others is through “real talk,” which breaks things down to their basic elements and eliminates any confusion for employees when discussing IT strategies or security policies.

Bill Burley, corporate vice president and general manager at Citrix, has built his career around "real talk.” As a result of these kinds of conversations, he’s been able to identify the top eight tips for enterprise security professionals to ensure that employees effectively use security measures this month and all other times.
