On Monday, AT&T and IBM announced a new partnership steeped in the realm of mobile cloud security.
Together, the respective industry titans will aim to deliver a scalable mobile cloud solution to help protect corporate data and apps.
IBM and AT&T’s new approach enables a workforce to be productive without compromising security and the mobile user experience.
“More employees are using mobile devices to be more productive. At the same time, data and apps are moving to the cloud. The changes are exciting, but security needs to be top-of-mind,” says Steve McGaw, chief marketing officer for AT&T Business Solutions. “Trusted collaborators like IBM are helping us better address changing business models. Together we’re giving options to deliver highly secure mobile access to cloud apps and data.”
IBM research found that nearly half of all companies allocate no budget to securing the apps they develop. As threats evolve and grow, how businesses deliver a secure user experience and mobile access to apps must evolve as well.
The AT&T and IBM mobile cloud security solution will help customers “secure the device, connectivity and data.”
