How to secure BYOD devices without installing software or creating conflicts

The long divide between mobile app detection and identification and access control has fueled cyber incidents and breaches as remote operations have proliferated.
Users who use personal smartphones do not need to install enterprise endpoint management products but still need to ensure that both the user and the device are protected as they conduct business operations, said RSA CEO Rohit Ghai. To address this common vulnerability, employers need technology that can protect personal mobile devices without imposing the same corporate security obligations or compromising the user experience, Ghai said (see: RSA CEO Rohit Ghai: ‘Disruption drives change’).
“If this is not a company-managed device, you will not have any assurance about whether the device has been hacked, if it has been compromised or if it is in the hands of the user that you are trying to identify, “Gee. said. “That lack of assurance creates a vulnerability in terms of auditing, as a compromised device can be used to access sensitive data in an enterprise.”
In this video interview with Security Media Group, Ghai discusses:
- What has changed about music discovery on mobile devices;
- Drivers and access to passwordless scanning;
- The most requested service for RSA inspection products.
Prior to the September 2020 acquisition of RSA by Symphony Technology Group, Ghai served as RSA’s CEO during its tenure as a Dell Technologies business. He previously served as president of Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division, where he developed the portfolio for the digital era through strategic partnerships and acquisitions. Ghai oversees all aspects of ECD’s business, including sales and operations, channel strategy, product development, marketing, finance, support and customer success. He joined Dell EMC in December 2009 to do product development and was the director of ECD before becoming president. Ghai joined Dell EMC from Symantec, where he held several senior engineering and general management roles. Previously, he worked at Computer Associates in a number of senior management roles in the BrightStor and eTrust business units, and led the CA India operations as Chief Technology Officer. Ghai joined CA through the acquisition of Cheyenne Software, a security and data protection startup.
