unmanaged but secured – how mobile application management support your enterprise

while ios and android offer more and more deep api to securely managed a mobile device and integrate into enterprise – apple utilize restrictions to natively separate managed from unmanaged content – android buildin work container on every device to secure enterprise data – both offer enrollment program to easiely intergrate the devices to management system

but there a argument to not rely on device management api – ios lack unfinished restriction of unmanaged/managed data, it is possible to bypass limitation under certain conditions – android depricated existing device admin feature in favor of android enterprise technology, but new container ui/ux isn’t consitant between different os releases and lack of some existing features, e.g. private/business calender overlay

privacy is a main point to offer a byod solution for your employees, ios managed devices could report your installed app and fully wipe even your private data (until user-enrollment was released), android enterprise addressed this from the very first, apple introduced user-erollment to address privacy concerns for byod deployments

usablity is the other big point to address for your users – while apple provide the ability to use business data within ios native applications, android lack of a consistant look and feel between os releases and different management api, batch icons differ at different releases and espesially samsung devices – to ease support provide the same email app across both mobile os

microsoft offer with it’s office 365 apps the capability to secure business data with app protection policies without the need to enroll your device to a unified endpoint management, 3rd party mdm could optinally integrate these features with graph api

new forms of malware via calendar invite even more annoying

more often noticed and actually effected by myself – google calenar display per default new invites from inbox, usually displayed in calendar for easy scheduleing or to block the timeslot – so attacker can target your gmail account to push notification directly to your mobile device when the fake calendar entry occurs

to get rid of this spam, it’s not enough to delete each calendar entry, because a new invite immediately popup’s in your calendar – your have to disable the feature “automatically add invitations” in google calendar event settings
