Mobility and Public Sector

Regarding mobility, public sector is facing the same challenges as the private sector. Employees working only at the office is not any more the rule, and IT have to deal with mobile laptops or smartphone they do not fully manage.

On the contrary, pushed by the operators, more and more public administrations are getting rid of their fixed lines in all their premises, including public schools, healthcare centers, library,…, and replacing them with either android fixed phone using a sim card or Wifi, and in some case giving smartphones to their employees.

Consequently, these new devices poses at least the same IT operation and security challenges as in the private sector, and even more if you take into account the critical missions public servant have to deal with, and the most personal information they manage: taxes, health, law and order.

Service continuity is vital, and information cannot be leaked, and represent a threat not only to privacy, but to homeland and personal security as well.

More and more public servants are going mobile and are using smartphone apps for their daily work, or replacing their fixed line with SIM based android fixed phone: the need to have efficient enterprise mobility solution for mobile devices is becoming more and more urgent.

These SIM based android fixed line must be available at all time, taking into account operator and Wifi coverage that might not always be optimum. Monitoring is necessary to guarantee public employee can communicate normally. 

Moreover, new security risks must be taken into account: rogue or compromised Wifi Connections, attacks on mobile operating systems vulnerabilities, side-loading of apps, installation of non-compliant apps, etc. Cybercriminals could try to gain access to government comunications and data.

The more mobile devices are used by public agencies employees and contractors, the bigger is the threat landscape: accessing email or any other government network or app from mobile nearly doubles the number of endpoints that have to be secured by IT Security teams.

And this task is even more challenging when you take into account that IT often lacks full mobile device admin access, (no EMM, or BYOD environments), and therefore cannot apply efficient security measures, updates or access restriction.
