Background

Just as mobile devices have altered the way we live, they have also altered the way we work. With 81% of employees using their phones at work, companies have stopped asking: "Is corporate data leaking from personal devices?" and started asking: "How do we effectively prevent corporate data from leaking from personal devices?" The answer has not been simple.

Various types of solutions, such as Mobile Device Management (MDM), protect corporate data by taking control of employee devices and wiping it when devices are lost or stolen. These approaches complicate employee privacy, exposing your company to employer litigation. Worse yet, they are complicated and costly to deploy and ineffective at protecting corporate data if the device is taken offline.

Find out how companies like yours are overcoming these hurdles and addressing BYOD security with a completely different approach.
