Mobile devices present tremendous opportunities for enterprises to extend their networks and deploy applications that can enhance productivity. But as the use of mobile devices and applications grows, the rate and sophistication of attacks on popular mobile platforms also grow and the need for mobile authentication becomes more and more prevalent. If not secure, with a certificate management service, mobile devices represent a weakness in the network that can be easily exploited. Like users, only legitimate, authenticated devices should be allowed to access corporate networks and resources.
Digital certificates provide an ideal mobile authentication method for organizations and their mobile devices so they can securely access these networks.
