Endpoint security and protecting mobile devices

SMB organizations operate on a mobile and social platform wherein their employees work on the move making best use of laptops, smart phones and tablets for business purposes. As per an estimate, over 90 percent of U.S. companies have data on mobile devices. Of those companies, 40 percent have no plans to protect mobile data, and this includes larger organizations also along with smaller ones.
Surprisingly, too many businesses are neglecting endpoint security and putting company data at risk. Laptops and mobile phones are more vulnerable to threats like being stolen or lost than on-premise devices, but the data on them is just as critical. With an increasingly mobile workforce, IT management has to understand the need for endpoint security and include mobile data protection in the agenda.
