Doing things the traditional way can come back to bite you, especially when it comes to security. Traditionally, access to company data has been controlled by a company’s network, internally or on-site, and IT manages what devices and applications have that access.
But today, with the increasing abundance of mobile applications and enterprise solutions moving to the cloud, companies are losing that control, resulting in an increased risk of a compromised devices or data leak.
For a utility company at which the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend was quickly becoming the norm, they face a new, insurmountable task: keeping their data secure.
They needed a solution that would allow them to manage all company-owned and personal devices (both iOS and Android) that access company data, along with the types of information that could be accessed and protection levels. The company wanted to find a way to meet their employees’ needs, stay compliant with industry regulations, and keep their data safe. Uncover the journey this client took to get there.
