At Infosecurity Russia 2013 in Moscow, Crocus Expo, on 26th September, Ian Evans, EMEA Managing Director at AirWatch will discuss how to help organizations gain a deeper understanding of what BYOD entails and how to address security concerns with BYOD.

"Many employees today are bringing personal devices into the enterprise and accessing corporate information while mobile. When these devices and the content and applications associated with them are not secured, it introduces a wide range of security threats like data leakage and breached networks.

Rather than trying to mitigate this trend by further locking down corporate resources, corporations can take advantage of it by empowering and securing the personal devices for business use through Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies. Enterprises must take advantage of this trend by empowering personal devices for productive business use through a secure BYOD platform and corporate container," says Ian Evans.

Ian Evans is managing director for EMEA at AirWatch, a global leader and innovator in mobile security, mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) solutions. In this role, Ian is responsible for growing AirWatch’s business in the European, Middle Eastern and African regions.
