Managing Mobile

As mobile becomes more and more a part of every worker's life, company leaders have struggled to manage security. This month, Oracle announced Oracle Mobile Authenticator, a token-based authentication application that enables organizations to cost-effectively provide strong authentication and prevent unauthorized access to vital company and customer data.

"In today's business landscape, mobile devices have become an extension of a user's identity and provide a simple and powerful solution to address growing digital security risks," said Amit Jasuja, senior vice president of Java and Identity Management, Oracle. "Oracle's approach to strong authentication enables organizations to take advantage of the growing number of personal devices in the workplace while reducing the cost of authentication. Additionally, the new Oracle Mobile Authenticator application delivers the added benefit of fraud detection and reduced risk."

Here, learn more about this new release. Plus, find out what Oracle executives and other thought leaders say about creating a winning mobile strategy that takes advantage of new technology solutions, and is tailored to your business needs.

Workflow to Go

Oracle has two key EPM technologies that address mobility in the workplace. "Managers are no longer tied to their desks, so if they're offsite or in a meeting, they can easily interact with finance applications and drive the business forward without having to wait to get back to the office," says Matthew Bradley, senior vice president of product development for EPM applications at Oracle.
