Mobile data security solutions aim to protect mobile devices and their data. They can be seen as a form of endpoint protection, specifically tailored to protect mobile devices and workstations.
Ensuring mobile devices devices are fully secure is extremely important for businesses with the increasingly remote and mobile global workforce that we see today. Companies need to ensure that connections to mobile devices are secure, manage access and limit the apps that can be downloaded to company-owned mobile devices. Other important features are encryption of mobile data, to mitigate against the risks of theft, store back-ups of data, and monitor and alert administrators to mobile threats. Many services will act as a firewall that monitors programs for suspicious behaviour to stop zero-day attacks and provides antivirus protection.
