Keeping corporate data secure for a mobile workforce
An increasing number of employees are working remotely or frequently traveling for work purposes. More and more of them are bringing their own devices to work, and it’s now much easier for data to be transported across multiple devices and outside the physical office environment.
In this new reality, enterprises are constantly fighting to keep their sensitive data safe and prevent cyber-crime.
Security solutions that have traditionally been in place, i.e. second-factor authentication (2FA) solutions using SMSes or hardware tokens are costly, inconvenient, and subject to man-in-the-middle attacks. At the same time, weaknesses found in common mobile operating systems mean that mobile applications and mobile tokens currently providing ‘enterprise-level security’ need extra protection against advanced persistent threats that continue to expose mobile phones.
