Mobile Security Essentials
Mobile security is one of those things you just don’t need until you need it! Then it’s too late. Once you’ve lost your smartphone or laptop, the sense of impending doom is bound to catch up with you. You may meakly call the police to report the tragedy that your smartphone or laptop has been stolen, but doing so won’t comfort you much. Only 3% of lost mobile devices are ever found, so what’s the likelihood yours will be one of them?
Nada. Zip. Squat.
Sorry to be the one to break the bad news to you, but according to the FBI, 10% of all mobile devices in the United States are stolen during their first year of ownership.
Yep! That’s a one in ten chance of losing your precious mobile device, which probably is the key to your business, your social life, and your economic health! Losing your contact list and all associated data on your laptop or smartphone is just not a risk that anyone can consider taking.
This is even more true for businesses. Businesses cannot afford to have mobile devices lost in the wilderness. This is a nightmare, especially when it comes to compliance. How compliant can a lost or stolen mobile device really be?
Not very. Thieves don’t care about your privacy and security issues. In fact, they laugh in the face of convention and revel in the fact they’ve stolen your device. Hey, it beats working, right?
You don’t have to feel powerless to loss or theft of your mobile device. Far from it. Instead, simply employ leading mobile security software and a cloud-based management system that put you in the driver’s seat. After all, it’s your mobile device or your fleet of devices at stake, along with your company’s reputation if your data goes missing.
You won’t get caught off-guard this way. Instead, you will already have inputted the security rules you wanted in order to produce the desired reaction when the phone is reported missing. That could be a policy to turn off the phone, lock the contact list, take a picture of the thief, and report its exact location to the police and the cloud-based management tool! Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Instead of sitting by haplessly, you won’t have to lift a finger to essentially save the day and do everything within your power to safely return the device to where it truly belongs.
