Security and Enterprise Mobility

by Kevin Benedict

November 4, 2010

A  VC (venture capital) firm called me yesterday asking my opinion on the importance of security in enterprise mobile applications.  I told him every large enterprise asks about security, but they generally expect the mobile platform to address this issue.  For example, if a large enterprise purchased the Sybase Mobility Platform, they would expect that the platform would include a solid security component.

Is that how you see it, or am I wrong?

The VC was looking at potentially funding a number of mobile security start-ups.  They wanted to know if there was a market for third party mobile security solutions in large enterprises.  I would like your feedback and thoughts on this.  Is security simply a check box on a feature list of a mobile platform, or will large enterprises look for additional third party mobile security solutions?
