With so many consumer devices finding their way into the enterprise, CIOs and CISOs are facing a trial by fire. Increasingly employees are using mobile devices to access corporate services and data and conduct business. However, many of these devices are not controlled by the administrator, meaning that sensitive data is not subject to the company’s compliance, security and data loss prevention (DLP) policies.
To complicate matters, today’s mobile devices are connected to an entire ecosystem of supporting cloud and PC-based services meaning that key corporate assets may be stored in any number of insecure locations outside the direct control of the enterprise.
If you use, manage, or provide connectivity to mobile devices, you face unique challenges for security and management. To complicate matters, the number of malicious threats that touch mobile devices is increasing.
