RSA News: Thycotic Announces RSA Survey Results

Thycotic Software announced the results of a survey of 341 RSA Conference 2014 attendees, which found that fewer than half (48 percent) of surveyed attendees feel the NSA overstepped its boundaries in its surveillance of U.S. citizens. Following widespread criticism of the agency in keynote speeches, this data indicates that many security professionals consider its actions necessary to U.S. cyber defense.

At the same time, three quarters (75 percent) of respondents, regardless of their stance on the NSA, think those who boycotted RSA Conference this year have a right to their opinion, and nine percent had even contemplated joining them. Only 17 percent say those who boycotted RSA are attention seekers.

HOB Announces App Availability

HOB announced the availability of HOBLink Mobile for Android, an app that enables secure remote access to enterprise data from Android devices. HOBLink Mobile for Android is an app that provides secure remote access to enterprise resources in the corporate network. Because data is stored on the company server and is never downloaded to the device, sensitive business and personal information such as contact information, emails and attachments remain inaccessible to unauthorized users if the device is lost or stolen. Additionally, HOBLink Mobile for Android is an ideal part of a company's BYOD strategy as there are no concerns about enterprise data security mixing with employees' private data.
