The world has changed.
The majority of internet traffic is now occurring on mobile. Corporate mobile devices are therefore regularly accessing valuable employee and customer data.
Organizations tend to have very little visibility into this device traffic. They are therefore unable to detect or prevent breaches in data and other security threats.
While some firms are making use of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) tools to administer application usage on corporate-owned devices, this level of security leaves gaps when it comes to preventing data leaks.
Mobile is a lucrative gateway to the enterprise. These devices present multiple openings for hackers to access your organization’s sensitive data. This is thanks to:
Implementing Wandera is an essential step towards GDPR compliance. It assists organizations’ in the following ways:
Companies must disclose data breaches to regulators and in certain circumstances to affected individuals, within 72 hours of their occurrence. Having a system in place for mobile that alerts administrators to potential breaches the moment they happen is critical to complying with GDPR. Not knowing is not an excuse.
Hundreds of the apps installed on corporate devices may be accidentally or maliciously built, transmitting sensitive data without encryption and posing a serious risk to the enterprise. Understanding and blocking the apps that are exposing data is critical to minimizing the chances of your next breach.
While one strategy might be to sit and wait for breaches to happen, a smarter approach is to identify potential exposures before they are exploited. Wandera gives organizations an unparalleled ability to detect risky configurations and other vulnerabilities in the devices, apps and settings of their mobile estate, escalating liabilities before they can be misused.
Importantly, no organization is 100% secured from security incidents, even with the best technology in the world. If the worst does happen, it is crucial that a business is able to show that it took all reasonable measures to prevent data breaches. Having Wandera in place shows the company was responsible in handling data and having security systems in place.
