Today’s work force is a progressive movement of access anywhere, on any device at any time. The adoption of smart phones, tablets and laptops by a mobile work force has enabled efficiency while raising concerns over security and effective management of the mobile environment. The trend for a single user to conduct company business over multiple devices is increasing year to year. Personal devices are often used for official company communications at all levels. Recently, even a top level government employee used a personal computer to send and receive sensitive information. It is an issue which needs to be addressed by all organizations moving forward.
In one year’s time the number of devices managed by IT departments within the enterprise jumped 72%. This alarming growth signifies the impact of mobility within the enterprise and SMB marketplace. More and more employees are demanding access to applications and data while outside the office. Concerns over services like Dropbox continue to keep IT management up at night while compliance officers are warning of criminal charges for a data breech. Gone are the simple days of just keeping the data center secure.
End to end protection is a requirement. The network, data and applications are all part of the equation when end users switch from device to device throughout their day. Any leak of sensitive information can have a devastating impact on a company’s reputation and bottom line.
As the demand increases the mobility solution needs to scale to handle additional users and increased workloads. Management of the environment needs to be efficient while providing real time analytics so important decisions can be made and implemented immediately. Policy creation and enforcement enhance the end user experience which is always being tested.
To remain competitive it is imperative that companies embrace mobility within their workforce. The benefits are tremendous for increasing employee productivity while providing flexibility and responsiveness.
