John Aisien: If Blue Cedar Is Doing It Right, You Shouldn't Notice Them

VIDEOS / 11.14.19 / Cylance Videos

The ability to run software on mobile devices has evolved rapidly and unevenly. One of the causalities of this imbalanced development is adoption. While companies have moved farther up the chain of mobile maturity, they haven't been able to realize the true benefits of mobile adoption because of one gaping hole: security.

Just look at where mobile security stands today. It's at the top of every company's worry list, and for good reason. Nearly all workers routinely access corporate data from smartphones, which makes keeping sensitive info out of the wrong hands increasingly difficult. The stakes, suffice it to say, are higher than ever for businesses: until the security gap is closed, those who want to take strategic advantage of a mobile-first world, can't. 

In this video, host Matt Stephenson speaks with John Aisien, CEO of Blue Cedar Networks, about why the stakes are higher than ever for businesses.
