Enterprise mobility is the bona fide ruler of today's business world. However, mobility best practices are only now being adopted and adjusted in many organizations. Those who have it, love it, and those who don't wish they did. It's an enticing idea—the possibility of having work easily accessible at your fingertips. You can work from anywhere.
When trying to go mobile, governments can struggle with the security challenges that come with it. While they continue to wrestle with the risks introduced by mobility, employees don't stop demanding access for more devices. To make everyone happy, network and security teams must align to ensure essential services are available and security policies are abided by.
Mobile technology has been ingrained in our personal lives for a while now and is gearing up to do the same in business. User demand for smartphone technology, along with rapid mobile device innovation, is driving the future of this end-user computing platform.
There is no doubt that libraries are integral to every community, ensuring there is an educated and literate population. The reliance on technology to provide access to information and communication technology services is a library's highest priority.
Libraries should have an online protection plan to safeguard themselves from the threats lurking in the corners of the internet. An online protection plan will help keep your library devices functional and safe, and your patrons' data secure. Libraries that don't have such a plan need to get one.
Knowing about IT security concerns is one thing, but actually safeguarding your network from them is another. However, you can't do the latter without the former. You can't effectively protect your network and devices from every single threat out there. You need to know what the highest risk to your IT infrastructure is.
Mobile devices are attached to our hips; people are buried in them, constantly answering emails and completing work. Estimates suggest the number of mobile devices will be around 10 billion in five years. That number works out to be 1.5 devices for every person on the planet.
Both BYOD and IoT are business disruptors. If your company is prepared and ready, these disruptors will be great; they'll shake up the company and present a new way of doing business. If you aren't prepared for these initiatives to come into your enterprise, they will present challenges and exhaust your IT staff.
Of the variations of the cloud, the private option is enticing to many enterprise IT leaders. They are embracing its capabilities to improve their company's agility, reduce costs, and accelerate development cycles—all while doing so internally. With a private cloud, IT can still get the benefits of a public one, while asserting more control over protection, compliance, and security.
Many online assets and critical business information are stored in the cloud for easy access, and easy access they are. If they aren't protected, along with your endpoints and network, your company is a huge target for hackers, viruses, and other online threats. To effectively protect what matters most to your company, you need strong, reliable security measures.
