Securing mobile devices is critical for IT administrators dealing with consumerization. Employees’ mobile devices are especially vulnerable because they often live outside the firewall, and users access both work and personal information from the same device. Client security is especially tricky because users often use several identities or logins on one device, and employers may be unaware of where work activity is occurring. There are also other issues that make securing mobile devices no easy task. In addition, cloud security comes into play when users access services such as Dropbox or Gmail for work purposes. IT departments don’t control these services, so protecting corporate data should be the top cloud security priority. The resources in this section cover data protection and mobile device security tips for IT professionals.
