Document Sharing On Mobile Devices: Securing Productivity On The Go!Source: MaaS360 by Fiberlink
This white paper from MaaS360 by Fiberlink covers the movement of enterprise documents into the mobile space and solving the problems of securing these documents to stay compliant and maintain confidentiality. With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) becoming more and more popular among enterprises and employees, it is more important than ever to find ways to provide secure access to more than just email, calendar, and contact.
The burden is placed on the IT department to provide secure distribution of documents as more and more users demand them. Corporate-issued laptops and BlackBerry devices were easily secured, however, BYOD users with mass-market smartphones and tablets designed to work on any network, and not just the corporate VPN, pose a major risk to security.
Easily accessible consumer file-sharing applications are catching on with business users, but the inability to control these file-sharing systems directly and know exactly what is happening to your file on their servers poses a security risk. It is also difficult to control access to these documents, putting enterprises at risk of data leaks, security attacks, and regulatory compliance violations.
