Mobile security a major concern for businesses
Mobile Working and Mobile Security
Mobile working has transformed the business world by changing the face and boundaries of the modern office. With mobile technologies such as Wi-Fi, employees can now access company data wherever they are. The result has been a significant increase in worker productivity across industries.
But mobility has created serious challenges for businesses as well. Workers can connect to company networks from outside of the traditional security perimeter. And they are choosing to connect on free, unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots.
Those unsecured connections present cybercriminals with a number of new opportunities to commit identity fraud and steal mass corporate data. Understandably, ensuring mobile security has become a new priority for organizations seeking to keep their workers productive while keeping their data secure.
