An Osterman Research Executive Brief
Osterman Research recently published an executive brief titled "A Better Method of Authentication" that discusses the security challenges organizations face due to the rapid growth of "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD).
Traditional authentication methodologies relying on alphanumeric passwords have long been fraught with difficulties and security risks. However, the recent growth of employees bringing their personal smartphones and tablets into the workplace has compounded those difficulties and security risks. This is because IT departments have less control over the mobile devices connecting to enterprise systems and data, and less control over the authentication and access control practices in place.
The executive brief covers the challenges surrounding BYOD and discusses a better authentication method that can help organizations securely enable employee-owned devices.
