Overview

Mobile devices are essential pieces of business kit. But as their capabilities have grown, the associated data security risks have increased. Kaspersky Lab research found that around 23 per cent of organizations experience mobile device theft annually, while around 1 million mobile device users are threatened by 3.5 million potential malware attacks.

Securing a mobile and geographically distributed workforce that has embraced social media and cloud-based technologies isn’t easy.  But deploying, managing and securing your mobile IT environment doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. This brief, straightforward administrator’s guide to mobile device security and management considers best practice approaches in 7 key areas, from creating effective policies to anti-theft activation, from containerization for BYOD to centralization and user empowerment.
