Protection of devices
The use of mobile devices (laptops, phones, tablets ...) in the business environment is opening an immense range of advantages with respect to the mobility and productivity of workers. However, in parallel increases the risk of security incidents given the control limitations that the IT department has on these devices, and even more if the organization opts for a philosophy that everyone uses their personal device to access information corporate With this type of philosophy companies save investment costs in new equipment, but lose visibility about who, how, and when access to company data.
The loss or theft of mobile devices and even the loss of employees in the organization, therefore entails a risk in the security of information, giving rise to the filtering of confidential data and even the theft of the identity of the user of the device.
