In todays Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world more than a few IT
managers have lost sleep over the thought of an employee device, loaded
with sensitive company data, falling into the wrong hands. Lookout
commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a national survey of IT
managers in the Fall of 2013 that uncovered substantial security concerns
related to mobile devices, especially around malware and data loss.
Ultimately, the survey revealed that IT managers do not believe existing
security solutions can adequately address the mobile security challenges
faced by businesses today.
With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions and overall trust erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats both in sophistication and sheer frequency all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
