SAIFE: Perimeter Security Re-invented

BYOD has changed when, where, and how we work. We’re more aware, better informed, and more effective. But with these productivity benefits comes a fast-growing risk—a consequence of having less control over enterprise data access and security. BYOD devices like smartphones and tablets are vulnerable to malware from insecure apps, email, or web browsing. When these devices connect to a corporate network, they often bypass the inbound security filters applied to corporate devices, providing a path for malware delivery.
