As enterprises expand their mobile footprint, the security risks to their data multiply: an unattended tablet, unsecured Wi-Fi network or malware from a third-party app is all it takes for data loss or a security breach to occur. Protecting just one of these aspects of mobility isn't enough. To address these vulnerabilities, IT executives are now taking a layered approach to mobile security and management. They protect the app layer, for example, with secure containers and the device layer with mobile device management.

There's no shortage of enterprise file sync-and-sharing services available to provide access to mobile data, but they're not the only option, and they're not right for every organization. Continue Reading
Mobile workers need access to corporate data, and every business must choose a method that meets its users' needs.
