Businesses need to ensure security of data in mobile devices

Published:

A recent partnership between Good Technology and RSA is intended to help business to protect the data stored in their smartphones and tablets, which will allow workers to use their mobile devices without fear of data loss.

With more IT careers focusing on data security, as well as more businesses allowing their employees to bring their own devices to the workplace, this recent partnership will provide protection for many businesses.

"The widespread adoption of 'bring-your-own-device' programs combined with the increasing rate of corporate network threats from mobile devices makes the need for application security controls even more important," said Nicko van Someren, CTO of Good Technology.

Despite the protection offered by the two companies, all businesses that use many mobile devices should invest in professional liability insurance, which helps them deal with the financial burden created by cybercrime should it occur.

Cybercrime is an issue all across the world, but especially so in the top 10 riskiest cities for cybercrime, as ranked by Forbes. Washington, D.C., Seattle and San Francisco find themselves in the first, second and third positions, respectively.
