Mobile Workforce and Security

Mobile Workforce and Security

The benefits of a mobile workforce can be endless. Lower facility costs, workforce flexibility, increased responsiveness are just few benefits of mobility but with all the benefits there are potential pitfalls that need to be considered. Extending your corporate network increases your potential attack surface. Today’s modern mobile workforce differs from the past where mobility meant access some form of portal located in your corporate network. Your data stayed in your network but now it is much harder to control where your corporate data lives. One compromised phone not only creates an entry point into your network but your adversaries may now also have very important data. In a world of costly breaches additional steps must be taken to comply with the many regulations such as HIPAA.

 

There are many threats to consider for smart phones and tablets such as malware, botnets, phishing attacks, device rooting or jailbreaking, and rogue applications. As a leading Managed Service Provider, Infinity Technology Services, is ready to help your company navigate the mobile workforce landscape.
