Overview/Description
Cryptography provides the means to secure data at rest and in transit, but that's only part of the story for hardening mobile systems. Requirements for a hardened back-end infrastructure are magnified by mobile units as these go-anywhere devices provide attackers with a potentially simple route into your back-end network. In this course, you will learn about encryption, some practical use cases in the mobile enterprise, and back-end hardening for mobile systems.

Target Audience
Enterprise network engineers and managers; network security engineers and managers; anyone tasked with providing secure access to company resources from mobile devices

Prerequisites
None
