Your customers are scared. Many of them have recently become fully remote workers for the first time. They’re learning new types of software to help them connect—and they are all working outside the protection of the office firewall. Many have weak internet security at their homes; perhaps they have extra “coworkers” (or children) who use all sorts of insecure apps on the same network the remote worker is using. Worse, we know 3 in 4 workers access business data from a personal device or vice versa, regardless of whether it’s against company policy.
When you consider that almost 40 percent of organizations that suffered a cyberattack in 2019 were breached through a mobile device, mobile is now a threat vector that can't be ignored. As their trusted IT providers, it is our business to protect their business. But how can we do this in a way that's easy (i.e. that they will practically implement and use) and still provide the advanced level of security they need on their mobile devices?
