  • Solving BYOD Security:Real-World Use Cases

  • BYOD Security with Virtual Mobile Infrastructure

    VMI is a service that streams mobile apps

    hosted in a data center or the cloud

    VMI is like Virtual Desktop

    Infrastructure (VDI) for Android

    VMI offers secure access to

    mobile apps from any

    device or location

  • Healthcare Use Cases



    Healthcare Insurance

  • Challenge

    SierraVMI securely streams healthcare providers medical apps

    Data is never downloaded to mobile devices

    All apps support multi-factor authentication, strong encryption & single sign-on

    Use Case: Healthcare Provider

    SierraVMI Solution

    Simplified IT by integrating authentication, auditing, and access controls

    Replaced multiple vendors with a single, integrated mobile security solution

    Protected EHR, messaging, email, notes and camera apps that could not be wrapped with MAM


    Had to address HIPAA and EPCS (Electronic Prescriptions) compliance

    Doctors wanted to access medical data from their phones

    Several apps were non-compliant

    Medical data was stored on phones

    Lacked dual-factor authentication for e-prescriptions

  • Healthcare Compliance

    HIPAA: Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

    EPCS: Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances

    164.312 (B): Audit controls. Implement hardware, software, and/or

    procedural mechanisms that record and examine activity.

    164.312 (D): Authentication: verify that a person or entity seeking access to

    electronic protected health information is the one claimed.

    Single-factor authentication is insufficient to ensure that a practitioner will

    not be able to repudiate a prescription he signed

    eRx applications must maintain an internal audit trail that records

    5 Pillars of Healthcare SecurityTechnical safeguards defined by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

    Monitors all activity, including text messaging & email apps

    Integrated dual-factor auth including client certs and one-time passwords

    Strong encryption to prevent Wi-Fi and Man-in-the-Middle attacks

    Centralized, granular access control for all healthcare mobile apps

    Secure, centralized storage to prevent accidental deletion or alteration of PHI

    SierraVMI Addresses 5 Pillars of Healthcare Security

  • SierraVMI Protects Medical Apps

    Securely store patient photos in the data center, not on phones

    Enforce dual-factor authentication for all apps

    Use screen recording or logging to audit text messages

    Maintain an audit trail of all e-prescriptions

    Ensure ePHI notes are never stored on phones

    Watermark sensitive healthcare records to prevent disclosure



  • Banking and Finance Use Case

  • Challenge

    For FFIEC compliance, a bank had to:

    Monitor network and host activity to identify violations and anomalies

    Enforce out-of-band authentication

    The bank worried about :

    Keyloggers and malware on phones

    Wi-Fi and Man-in-the-Middle attacks

    SierraVMI prevents data from being downloaded to phones

    One-time passwords provide out-of-band authentication

    IT can log and screen record remote access and privileged activity

    IT can scan Android and apps for vulnerabilities with server-grade tools

    Use Case: Bank

    SierraVMI Solution

    Reduced the risk of costly data breaches due to device theft or insider abuse

    Improved business agility because new apps could be released faster, without cumbersome MAM integration

    Satisfied FFIEC requirements with a single, centrally managed solution

  • Banking Regulations

    FFIEC: Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council

    MAS: Monetary Authority of Singapore Threat Risk Management

    Wheresingle-factor authentication is inadequate, financial institutions

    should implement multifactor authentication, layered security, or other


    Appendix E2: As part of the two-factor authentication infrastructure, the FI

    should implement adequate controls and security measures to minimise

    exposure to MitM attacks.

    GLBA: Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

    Section 501(b) 3) Financial Institutionsshould protect against unauthorized

    access to or use of customer records or information

  • Manufacturing Use Case

  • Challenge

    Manufacturer had developed training, messaging and productivity apps

    Required client certs to prevent unauthorized access to all apps

    Needed to publish assembly instruction and training videos with contractors and suppliers

    An employee had recently leaked product plans to a competitor

    SierraVMI secures the manufacturers mobile apps by:

    Requiring client certs for all apps

    Providing secure access to contractors and suppliers

    Applying anti-screen capture and watermarking on sensitive files

    Securely distributing training videos

    Use Case: Manufacturing

    SierraVMI Solution

    Reduced the risk of a data breach by applying stringent security to all apps

    Improved visibility into mobile access with security alerts and detailed logging
