Anti-Malware is a Must!
This isn’t really a tip, more like a firm reminder. All devices including phones and tablets must have this type of software installed. Hackers do not discriminate when it comes to valuable information, especially from companies. Protect your information and make it a first priority.
Smaller to mid-size business often make the mistake of assuming their information is not as valuable as big name companies. This simply is not true. We live in the information age where hackers will use any type of information they can to churn a profit. Make sure it is not your company’s information they get their hands on.
Clarus Communications can give you all the protection your company’s mobile devices need and create a security plan tailored for your company.
Be Clear About What is your Company’s Most Important Data
This means you must identify and prioritize what data in your company is most valuable and the best way to secure it. Then you can determine if that data is worth sharing via mobile devices or not. Clarus Communications can help create a technology solution geared toward your company and its needs.
Be proactive in your mobile device management plan. Think about the worst case scenario and work backward to set up an effective plan. This will help alleviate some of the burdens of managing your company’s mobile devices.
Require Strong Passwords and Multiple Authentication
We understand that requiring strong passwords and authentication is a pain to end users, but it is an important step in warding off hackers. Simple password creation is not enough. CIO.com recommends requiring authentication in multiple forms for mobile devices. By requiring authentication of your mobile device users you are accomplishing multiple security provisions all at once.
- Authentication in multiple forms limits the use of non-important communication. Users will reconsider the use of their organization’s mobile device if they have to go through multiple authentication steps just to communicate a non-important message. This means less access to the network and less opportunity for a security breach
- It strongly limits access if it gets into the wrong hands. This is the most important reason multiple points of authentication is necessary. If by chance a device does end up in the wrong hands you want to make it as hard as possible to get into your system. Hopefully to deter hackers to stop trying and to give your technology solution time to activate a remedy to protect the data on the device.
