Mobile work is the new normal, and it’s easy to see why. The emergence of mobile connectivity options has enabled professionals to get work done from a variety of locations beyond the office, blurring the lines between work and personal, and creating an expectation that they should be able to connect from anywhere. But mobile professionals are taking matters in to their own hands, frequently taking security risks in their pursuit of staying connected. As a result, CIOs and senior IT decision makers are increasingly concerned about the risks associated with working on the go. You can read our findings in the 2018 iPass Mobile Security Report.
