Only four years ago, the tablet market as we know it didn’t exist. Yet today, millions of people are using them, along with smartphones, to improve productivity in their personal and professional lives. However, enterprises are left with the headache of protecting sensitive data across multiple devices and user profiles. The BYOD trend has made it difficult to control and secure devices connecting to the enterprise.

Authentication is the first challenge of CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers). Past approaches have been what Gartner labels “heavy-handed”, with additional costs, complexity and restrictive data access policies. Although one-time code generators can bring strong two-factor authentication, using them disrupts workflow. That’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to protecting information in the enterprise. Protecting data as it’s used is even more problematic.

To address this situation, many vendors turn their attention to the device management interfaces of the operating system (OS), external software or mobile applications to provide effective security across all devices. However, this approach is like building castles on shifting sand – when the next spring tide of OSes roll in, the foundations will disappear.

Samsung and Symantec, have partnered with Trustonic, to tackle these issues head on, with hardware anchored security. Both use the Trustonic ‹t-base Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), to deliver innovative, enriched, simplified and consistent enterprise user experiences. The Symantec VIP app makes user authentication simple and secure, while the ‹t-base enabled Samsung Knox 2.0 framework offers greater control of access to sensitive business data.

We predict that over the next four years of Enterprise Mobility, it will be easier to use and unlock the full potential of enterprise data with hardware anchored security as found in Samsung Knox 2.0 and Symantec VIP apps.

Trusted User Interfaces (TUIs) are the next big thing for securing critical mobile apps. The Trusted User Interface feature allows a Trusted Application to interact directly with the user via a common display and touch screen, completely isolated from the main device OS.


Time for Hardware Backed Mobile Application Security

There’s much written about the need to secure mobile applications and the consequences of failing to do this well. At the same time, many claim this to be an impossible task, with numerous and varied ways for the ‘bad guys’ to win. Security is never easy – but good security can transform the way users interact with systems, enabling new ways of living and working. Done right, security makes systems simpler and easier to interact with. The days of passwords and dongles are long gone.
