As an increasing number of employees want to bring their own devices to work, mobile security headaches are becoming a huge concern for the companies. Businesses have realized that they will have to put in place a concise plan to ensure security in the BYOD age.
Helping them in this task, The Telecom Expense Management Industry Association (TEMIA (News - Alert)) has arranged a Thought Leadership Panel at Super Mobility Week. Titled "BYOD, MDM and Mobile Security," this Thought Leadership session, will be powered by CTIA (News - Alert) and will begin September 9 at 3 p.m. at the Las Vegas Sands Expo and Convention Center on Stage 2 for Enterprise Apps, MDM, Big Data, Cloud.
This is a useful panel discussion for the participants, as BYOD security is an important aspect of the company's strategy and it can have considerable impact on the overall success of the business. To make BYOD successful, the decision-makers need to be aware of various tool sets and best practices.
TEMIA's panelists include the veterans of the industry such as Lyndsey Richmond, VP of Enterprise Mobility for AuditMacs; Simon Thomson, COO, Americas for MDSL; Ken VanDerHorst (News - Alert), Director of Sales in the Western Region for WidePoint Corp.; Nitin Khatri, VP of Sales and Marketing for eTelesolv; and many more.
“There is no denying that BYOD is hugely popular among employees,” said Nitin Khatri, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Etelesolv. “IT managers need to realize that the true cost of BYOD eliminates the productivity gains from employee satisfaction. Companies end up paying higher per-user costs because the volume discount on devices is gone, and device management becomes a logistical and security nightmare that greatly taxes the bottom line."
Apart from educating companies on mobility, many of the members of TEMIA will also be exhibiting at Super Mobility Week. At the event, TEMIA will display a Telecommunications Management pavilion which has been a popular event in the past as well.
