Mobility can mean insecurity.
According to Cisco*, the average employee carries 3 devices everywhere they go. That’s because, to compete in a mobile world, your employees need access to their data and communications anywhere, on any device. Whether they’re across the country or just in a conference room, they can’t afford to be away from their data for even a moment.
But all that access can create problems. It adds complexity to IT that can open the door to spam, viruses, and accidental data loss. Worse, it can create opportunities for not-so-accidental theft or destruction.
How do you balance the need to keep your data open with the need to keep it safe?
