Secure Mobile Devices—Virtualization Solution Offers Reliable Multi-Device Mobile Security

Maintain strict corporate data security while delivering applications and desktops to employees on their mobile devices in a "bring your own device" (BYOD) environment

Nearly all employees have a preferred device of choice. As a result, many are demanding the freedom to use the mobile devices they're most familiar with: Android users only want Android; iOS users only want iOS. However, many employees while on the road or out of the office must be able to access line-of-business (LOB) applications and virtual desktops from their device. Therefore, it falls on the IT department's shoulders to accommodate the expectations of the workforce, and not only provide user-friendly LOB applications on employee devices, but make sure they are in a secure mobile device environment.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) creates a secure environment where employees can access LOB applications, data, and virtual desktops on any device, anywhere. IT teams prefer Parallels RAS because it provides solid security features to ensure that corporate data remains secure even when available over the wide area network (WAN).

Secure mobile device overview

With the proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace, cybercriminals increasingly focus on attacking what is perceived as a weak link in IT networks: mobile devices. According to OpenDNS and the Ponemon Institute, 45% of businesses don't have an official policy for providing IT support to employee-owned devices, which can lead to security threats. Furthermore, employees are using their phones to perform business-relevant work regardless of company policy. This places increasing demands on the IT teams that are responsible for protecting corporate data and guarding the network against threats—even on mobile devices connected to the Internet.

Award-winning Parallels RAS incorporates robust security features—including encrypted connections, advanced surveillance and reporting, and highly definable permissions—to protect corporate networks from attacks while enabling LOB applications and desktop access on mobile devices.
