Don't be a mobile fool!

Keep alert today because April Fools are all about, and unfortunately for some, they will be self-inflicted. I have come across more than a few SMB decision makers who are missing a huge concern in their network environment. The problem is, they can't see it because it's not actually in the office.

Mobile devices in the workplace have exploded as much as they have in the consumer space, and several studies show that the risk of exposure or loss of company data is rising with this explosion. So what do you do? Apparently SMBs have not gotten the memo as only about 7% of them have thought about Mobile Device Management (MDM). I'll delve further into some of the features and benefits of MDM and also discuss the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement. Creating controls and rules for mobile devices in the workplace, both corporate and personal, will be a huge growth area in 2013. Just don't be caught behind the curve and suffer a loss before you act.
