Many of today’s corporate and government employees prefer to access email, calendars, Wikis, and Intranets on their own iPhones, iPads, or Android-enabled devices. But how do IT administrators respect the freedoms of their employees without compromising the security of their corporate data? Simply managing the devices isn’t enough: It’s not cost-efficient or completely safe. Today, the most secure companies are the ones that have found a progressive approach to mobile device management—one that allows their employees to have freedom of choice in the phones and tablets they find most productive, and that embraces a data loss prevention strategy that safeguards proprietary information from accidental cloud exposure and consumer-app corruption.
