Novell, Kyocera and NetIQ have joined forces to demonstrate that reliable enterprise data security is achievable in the mobile era.
The partners plan to present a roadshow called The Mobile Life Tour that will visit 26 cities in 14 countries across Europe, Middle East and Africa in September and October 2013.
“Following the recent developments in enterprise email and file security, there has been a growing level of disquiet in the market,” said Dirk Schmidt, vice president and regional general manager at Novell.
“We feel it is important that established IT infrastructure suppliers proactively support organisations in delivering reliable security for their enterprise IT, in particular around mobility,” he said.
With the budget constraints many organisations are experiencing, Schmidt said the partners would focus on helping IT to use existing assets to enhance productivity and maintain enterprise level security.

Oliver Kreth, general marketing manager for Europe at Kyocera said enterprise IT security does not end at computers and mobile devices, but extends to include document solutions.
He said Kyocera has joined the roadshow to demonstrate document solutions integrated into IT security, specifically addressing mobile print solutions.
Ian McKay, regional director of channel and strategic alliances at NetIQ said security is still possible in a mobile world, but as organisations adopt mobility, they should be refining strategies to enable secure access to critical resources and sensitive data for their mobile workforce.
“This requires tight integration between management of mobile platforms, access controls, and security event monitoring to ultimately ensure a rapid path to secure mobile computing while limiting business risk,” he said.
The roadshow will also feature other industry specialists SEP, Attachmate and GWAVA, kicking off in Frankfurt on 12 September and concluding in Copenhagen on 31 October.
