(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121016/LA94090LOGO [http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121016/LA94090LOGO]) The meteoric rise of the mobile workforce presents challenges to organizations that are struggling to secure and manage their enterprise mobility effectively while reducing costs and exposure to risk. According to a survey [http://www.webroot.com/En_US/pr/mobile-security/ent/mobile-security-decision-makers-report-byod-threats-have-infiltrated-their-organizations-111312.html] conducted by Webroot, among smaller companies (250-999 employees), an estimated 22 percent spent 40 or more IT employee hours each month to manage the security of devices, provision devices and replace lost or stolen devices each month, while 40 percent of larger companies (1,000 or more employees) spent 40 or more IT hours each month. In addition, 74 percent of companies are very or extremely concerned about loss of company or customer data via mobile devices and 70 percent are highly concerned about mobile malware infections, and more than half of firms with corporate-liable mobile devices have not installed security on their smartphones or tablets.

"IT administrators need a solution that easily manages and defends their enterprise mobility ecosystem without compromise," said Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI Inc. "Webroot's security intelligence and secure browsing capabilities enable MobiControl V10 to meet and exceed that need, continuing MobiControl's leadership in the MDM industry." With SOTI's scalable Mobile Device Management, customers can manage the complete mobile asset lifecycle, secure data and network integrity, integrate application environments, optimize costs and operations management, and provide best-in-class help desk support and services.

MobiControl V10 has a wide range of advanced new features including Web Filtering, Real Time Antivirus and Malware Protection, Help Desk Suite, Telecom Expense Management, and Secure Content Library.

"We are delighted to partner with SOTI to add our superior mobile security intelligence to its extensive MDM solution," said Dick Williams, Webroot CEO. "Today the endpoint is the perimeter of the enterprise network. Protecting that network and the data within it along with an increasingly mobile workforce must be a priority for IT managers, and with MobiControl V10 and Webroot they can do that without sacrificing other priorities." MobiControl V10 combined with Webroot Security Intelligence and secure web browsing delivers uncompromising defense against malware and web-based threats, ensuring end users and business data are protected. The solution draws on the power of the Webroot Intelligence Network, the world's most comprehensive security intelligence network, to deliver the most advanced threat defense. The solution will automatically scan applications and files for viruses, spyware and Trojans, blocking threats before they have a chance to compromise the device or data. In addition, the solution will provide a secure web browsing experience on managed devices, scanning web links and URLs to block phishing and other malicious content.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
