When your workplace is mobile, will your business get carried away?

The mobile devices your employees love to use on their own time have now also become the business tools they use on your dime. Our recent research tells the story: 65 percent of our surveyed companies give employees network access through their own devices; 80 percent of the applications these employees use are not based on-premise, but in the cloud; and 52 percent regularly use, not one, but three or more devices.

Sure, these mobile devices – including smartphones, laptops and tablets – open up new opportunities for portable productivity. But by their very mobile nature, they also open new vulnerabilities: new ways to lose data, lose protection and lose confidence in the security of your company network.

Fortunately, productivity and protection can travel together – if you fully understand what the risks are and what you can do to mitigate them. This paper briefly reviews the top six threats to your mobile workforce, matching real-world hazards with really helpful ways you can take action and achieve the security your business requires.
