The show floor at RSA was buzzing with discussion of attacks against critical infrastructure and state-sponsored attacks – the words hactivist and A.P.T. were uttered frequently.  But, while cyber-espionage was making headlines from the show, Symantec took the opportunity to survey information security pros on insider issues related to data access and mobility. The findings show that although 76 percent of businesses saw cyberattacks in the past year, increased use of mobile devices is making the insider threat more relevant than ever before.

It should come as no surprise that the top three motivators for the move to mobility are: business drivers, user demand and financial...

Successful technology adoption requires managing the drawbacks while maximizing the benefits, and few trends today illustrate this better than mobility. We’re seeing a wide variety in the degree to which organizations are allowing employees to use mobile devices for business, as well as the amount of control they are exerting over devices and applications.

One of the great challenges businesses face today is enabling productivity by giving people access to the resources they need, without compromising the safety of that information. And while it’s not always easy to see the risks, recent events have made it obvious that disaster can strike at any time, in many different ways. It’s vital for organizations of all sizes to have a plan in place to keep their business operational when things go wrong.

Complicating the situation are several megatrends that are having a significant impact on IT today: namely, virtualization, cloud and mobility. These technologies are giving even small businesses the flexibility they need to compete better in a global market, but how are they affecting our ability to...

Symantec’s recent 2012 State of Mobility Survey found that organizations across the globe are embracing mobility at unprecedented rates, driven in part by the “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) movement. In fact, according to the survey, 59 percent of enterprises are now making line-of-business applications accessible from mobile devices, and another 71 percent are considering implementing a corporate mobile app store.

So, just why are so many organizations gravitating towards mobility? Increased efficiency, increased workplace effectiveness and reduced time required to accomplish tasks are just some of the answers we hear from our customers. In short, the goal is better...
