Mobile technology is changing how we conduct business. Not only has there been an increase in the use of smartphones, tablets and laptops, but the number of organizations adopting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies has skyrocketed. And to complicate matters, employees now expect to be able to access their business applications — email, contacts, calendars, SharePoint, CRM and other portals — on these devices from any location and any time of the day.
The priority for IT departments has become to identify the requirements needed to secure and support these mobile devices. They recognize their organization can gain a competitive edge with mobile devices when the proper security policies and procedures are in place. And, they can satisfy the user through profile-configured VPN and network access, so they no longer have to hunt for corporate access and Wi-Fi keys.
Mobile device use and security must be carefully managed in order to protect the security of both your organization’s physical assets and its sensitive information. According to an Info-Tech Research study, up to 30% of mobile devices are lost or stolen along with their corporate data and intellectual property. In a BYOD environment, every misplaced smartphone, tablet, or laptop is a potential gateway to your sensitive systems. When users can access and modify data on unsecured devices, it creates additional risks for information control, malware, data corruption, and theft.
