The Maru Architecture Design: A proposed BYOD architecture for an evolving threat landscape
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is one of the fastest growing trends in information
technology. As organizations explore accepting this paradigm shift, IT faces a
future reality where devices are no longer under their complete control.
Combined with a rapidly evolving security landscape focused on attacking the
user, IT is kept awake at night with the fear that a breach will soon make
Despite these fears and objections, the growing thought among industry experts
is that BYOD acceptance is inevitable for most organizations. A shift in
strategic thinking towards accepting BYOD in the enterprise and mitigating its
potential risks is needed. This talk focuses on a proposed architecture
blueprint for BYOD enterprises. The goal of this design, when part of a proper
BYOD program, will be to help reduce many of the risks associated with BYOD,
while allowing users and organizations to enjoy the many benefits.
