Government measures for prevention of the spread of the coronavirus mean that home office stops being seen as simply a benefit, but instead as a necessity to maintain full operation of a company and its work activities.

Forced by the circumstances, many companies adopted Work from anywhere policies, giving individuals autonomy over where they live and cutting down the costs of physical office space.

Along the reduced spending on office premises, this shift proved to have other significant benefits for the company, such as increased productivity of most employees and, in most cases, increased levels of employee satisfaction. But the shift to home office also means companies are much less protected by the security features they had from their in-office network.

This work model transition is resulting in a notable increase in the number of employees using their personal devices for business purposes, significantly widening the organizational attack surface.

The issue

Cybercriminals are continuing to exploit vulnerabilities in popular software, as seen with the recent Apple zero-day exploit, and conducting sophisticated cyberattacks, making it clear that basic security hygiene, while integral to the overall security strategy, is unable to provide sufficient protection alone. These types of attacks are able to impact thousands of organizations, ranging from small businesses to government agencies. The question is, will your organization be next?

Below are some best practices for organizations on how to implement a mobile security solution that allows them to work smarter, not harder, to ensure their company will not be fall victim of the next widespread cyberattack.

Adopt a Containerization Approach

By storing enterprise applications—such as email, contacts, calendars, messaging and others—in an encrypted container, enterprises can avoid native vulnerabilities of operating systems and ensure data stored on devices is secured both in-transit and at rest.

Integrate Mobile Threat Defense

There are a variety of solutions that provide threat defense capabilities but determining which one is right for your organization can be a daunting task. Instead of implementing multiple solutions across your workforce, enterprises should make sure anti-virus (AV) protection, Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) are incorporated in their mobile security solution and centrally managed in a unified administrative console.

With this approach, end-users will remain secure on both managed and unmanaged devices and ensure they are protected before allowing them to access or download sensitive corporate data.
