For companies embracing Managed Mobility Services, BYOD and employee access to enterprise services are commonplace.

The risks associated with mobile marketplaces are a cause for serious concern, and it is imperative that you reduce your corruption risk and maintain the safety of your assets at all times.

The Risks
Mobile enterprises and BYOD have an enormous impact on company security. Businesses need to be more aware of cyber threats and corruption risks not just from corporate devices, but from BYOD and cloud access as they bring a new dynamic to IT security. This is further exacerbated using cloud applications, and the promotion of anywhere/anytime access. While these features are hugely beneficial, they also raise concerns across cor
porations. A more open, mobile business increases the avenues threats can take, including: 

-    Devices and software that are not patched or up to date
-    Devices and software operating outside of company firewalls
-    Data access outside of secure business apps and networks
-    The loss and theft of devices containing business data

Each of these can lead to corruption, malware, ransomware, and other threats that put your business and your data at risk. The ‘WannaCry’ attack is a prime example of this. However, with increased security threats comes increased awareness – and ways in which companies can successfully combat risk.
The Resolution

It would be a mistake to assume that risk removes the benefits offered by Mobility Management. The key here is management, and companies need to be prepared for any eventuality regardless of which service they are using.

Solutions to the risks faced by mobile enterprises include:

  • -    Foundational Security Controls
  • -    Network access controls
  • -    Device authentication
  • -    Technology management
  • -    Network management
  • -    Central controls
  • -    Device management
