Bring your own device (BYOD) is a trend that has grown in popularity because of the convenience it offers employees, but it also presents a serious security risk. If an employee's personal device is not appropriately secured, it can become a potential entry point for attackers to gain access to sensitive corporate information.
Malware attacks are continuously on the rise. In 2019, cybersecurity experts calculated that one organization succumbed to a malware attack every 14 seconds. In 2021, that figure rose to one malware victim per 11 seconds. For this reason, businesses must implement a mobile-first security strategy.
Businesses of all sizes and across all sectors are turning to Microsoft 365 for the productivity-boosting benefits it offers. Many also choose the subscription service for its robust security features designed to safeguard against cyberthreats of all kinds.
More hospital wireless networks are making use of mobile device management (MDM) software to monitor every device connected to their network, and for good reason, too. Here are the numerous benefits MDM offers to healthcare organizations.
Governments have established several regulations, such as HIPAA, to protect patient records, but mobile devices are posing a major challenge to these regulations.
Microsoft understands the value of business data and the costly repercussions of losing it. That’s why they’ve released a slew of security and compliance tools for Microsoft 365 subscribers. But given the increasing sophistication and frequency of data breaches, these cloud security solutions aren’t enough to protect your files.
Protecting your business data goes beyond protecting your office computers and networks. A solution called mobile threat detection (MTD) puts up digital barriers around your company’s mobile devices to block malware and other threats unique to their form factor.
Securing mobile devices is challenging. They often have privileged access to sensitive data that they connect to via unprotected network connections. Virtualization vendors are finding ways to include solutions to these problems in their products and they’re perfect for small businesses.
For businesses, data security is critical. If this information is lost or stolen, it could lead to crippling financial losses, legal disputes, and more importantly, loss of customer trust. While Microsoft Office 365 comes with some security and compliance tools, it still needs the support of data protection best practices.
With cybersecurity threats targeting small and large businesses, solutions that protect mobile devices are no longer a niche service. More work is being handled away from the office, which means more opportunities for security breaches. Virtualization vendors are leading the charge to tackle these challenges with innovative solutions.
Mobile device management is a full-fledged subset of IT security. Employees store and view sensitive data on their smartphones, which exposes your organization to a significant amount of risk. Although there are plenty of great solutions for managing this, the National Security Agency (NSA) believes mobile virtualization is the next big thing.
