Mobile First: Securing Information Sprawl
Once you have implemented mobile device management (MDM), the next mobile problem to address is information sprawl. Because they increasingly want access to more than just email, business users are taking advantage of the sharing and access capabilities of consumer mobile devices, including app-based cloud services. Workers now use smartphones and tablets as their primary computing endpoints and have high expectations for mobile collaboration capabilities. Users want to access and share everything from email to desktop files both internally and externally, and utilize corporate repositories like Microsoft SharePoint and Windows File Shares, from behind the firewall, on all their devices. As content access and control moves from IT to the individual user, a new set of opportunities—and challenges—arise.
