Mobility can be a productivity enhancer for enterprises, but it can also open up the firm to security threats – ranging from lost or stolen devices with corporate data on-board to malware infection from an insecure app. Data loss is a huge risk when it comes to mobility. Employees use their mobile devices to process corporate data, and this could lead to data loss if the right security precautions are not taken. Data-stealing malware also poses a threat to corporate data and could result in the compromise of privileged accounts.
To secure the mobile workforce, enterprises should adopt a combination of technologies and policies to address security challenges, while enabling employee productivity. When it comes to mobility, employees want ease of use and convenience, while the enterprise wants control and security. Those are two opposing forces that need to meet in the middle.
This webinar will examine the challenges as well as the solutions for securing the mobile workforce.
