How To Improve A Hybrid Work Environment: Protect Your Data
Hybrid work is here to stay. With the increasing prevalence of remote work, mobile device policies are one area businesses must focus on. Businesses face a unique challenge because smartphones have become such critical tools for today’s working professionals.
A recent Oxford Economics and Samsung study found that mobile device strategies and policies are increasingly informed by data security concerns, which “likely will intensify as more data than ever swirls between devices and the cloud, more apps are downloaded, more corporate resources are shared, and smartphones are increasingly used to access sensitive company information.”
In the survey, Oxford Economics found that 93% of companies providing mobile devices to employees have a mobile device management (MDM) solution. However, the survey also discovered that only 40% of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) companies use MDM, leaving “smartphones and corporate data unmanaged and organizations without tools to mitigate security risks or respond when devices are lost or stolen, or compromised.” However, just because you have an MDM in place doesn’t mean your business won’t face challenges that can compromise the organization’s integrity.
A Consent-Based Mobile Forensics Solution For The Commercial Sector
When a business suspects its data may have been compromised, it could be facing one of eight common challenges:
- Intellectual Property (IP) Infringement
- Data Theft
- Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)
- Sabotage/Insider Threat
While most digital forensics labs have existing tools and workflows to investigate crimes involving the list above, the commercial sector hasn’t had a solution to address these challenges until now. VeraKey by Grayshift is a consent-based mobile forensics solution for the commercial sector that can help protect commercial customers’ integrity and assist in eDiscovery and commercial litigation matters.
