Abstract 'The Art of Mobile - Know Your Device':

The market trends are clear and there is no doubt mobile will become even more important in the future.
The impact these devices have on the business network in terms of security is huge; established values are changing and our approach needs tuning.

Using real-life case studies a build-up is made of a reference architecture design that accommodates "any" devices using the available, and coming, tools on the market.

Some questions that will be answered during the presentation:
How does Mobile Device Management actually work ?
What is the advantage of moving from self-configuration towards MDM systems ?
How to secure network services ?
How to provision different 'services' ?
How do handle mobile apps ?

The purpose of this presentation is to provide an insight into Mobile Device Management, the impact on the IT architecture and most important; how to use that mobile information to put IT security onto the next level.
Given the market trend, the presentation will focus most on iOS devices and Android where applicable.
