ibm As IBM was not able to get into the smart phones , they came up with a security feature for smartphones, which they called as Hosted Mobile Device Security Management service.They are targetting for smartphone as well as tablet.As per IBM , they are targetting the business users who use the smart phone. This Mobile Device Security Management service helps organizations to protect against and monitor data loss and other risks caused by device theft, unauthorized access, malware, spyware, and inappropriate apps. This will work with Apple iOS, Google Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and Microsoft Windows Mobile which uses . When I logged in my office PC , I have a software called Pointsec installed, the main use of pointsec is to keep the PC as secured as possible, but the funny thing is that after installation of that, the booting time is increase by 40% and worst senerio is the system performance got down like anything. I hope this kind of issue wont happen to the IBM’s new security system.
