Summary:
In current mobile system environment there is a large gap in the use of smart phones for personal and enterprise use due to required enterprise security policies, privacy concerns as well as freedom of use. In the current environment, data-plans on mobile systems have become so wide spread that the rate of adaptation of data plans for every day customers has far outpaced the ability for enterprises to keep up with existing secure enterprise infrastructures. Most of the enterprises require/provide the access of emails and other official information on smart platforms which presents a big challenge for the enterprise in securing their systems. Therefore due to the security issues and policies imposed by the enterprise in using the same device for dual purpose (personal and enterprise), the consumers often lose their individual freedom and convenience at the cost of security. Few solutions have been successful addressing this challenge. One effective way is to partition the mobile device such that the enterprise system access and its information are completely separated from the personal information. Several approaches are described and presented for mobile virtualization that creates a secure and secluded environment for enterprise information while allowing the user to access their personal information. A reference architecture is then presented that allows for integration with existing enterprise mobile device management systems and at the same time providing a light weight solution for containerizing mobile applications. This solution is then benchmarked with several of the existing mobile virtualization solutions.
