Information Security News
When we talk about mobile devices, all boundaries are gone. Depending where you work, it is likely that your mobile device (phone or tablet) has access to all the corporate data via wireless, in some case with very little restrictions.
Two points to take in consideration:
- Defining access control: Create one access policy that is applied and control all networks (wireless, VPN, wired)
- Use Mobile Device Management (MDM): Provide the ability to separate data from personal and company-owned assets with approved security controls for any devices whether they are company owned or personal.
These changes should provide greater network visibility allowing your organization to discover devices, measure bandwidth utilization, enforce policies, analyze traffic patterns to monitor for anomalous activity that can drain resources.
We would like to hear from you, what is your organization currently doing to manage mobile devices in your network?
