Mobility currently represents one of the driving factors behind almost all business and IT initiatives. Analyst firm IDC concludes that mobility will coalesce with social media, big data and cloud services to form the four pillars of computing’s next dominant platform. As end-users increasingly rely on smartphones and tablets for their personal and business activities, they store valuable information on these devices that is attracting the attention of cybercriminals. This has spawned mobile threats not only becoming more prolific, but also more sophisticated.
Despite the significant risk, according to a recent study by Webroot, more than half of businesses said they do not have any solution in place to manage mobile devices and security. IT departments need to secure mobile devices against malicious malware and applications while also protecting corporate and personal data. Administrators need the ability to centrally manage security for mobile devices as they currently do for laptops and desktops. These challenges make it critical to implement mobile data management tools that incorporate intelligent security technology.
