With so many mobile workers, businesses cannot ignore the potential for loss or theft of corporate assets. What happens when an employee stops somewhere on the way home, leaves his computer in his car, and someone breaks into the car and steals it? Now, any sensitive data on the machine is vulnerable and in the hands of unauthorized people.

Data protection is particularly important to a company’s reputation. You want to make sure your customers know they can trust you will keep their information secure.

Encryption technologies are the most common way to protect data at rest. Companies should employ hard drive encryption solutions that make all data invisible to thieves. Data leak prevention for data in motion prevents the leakage of sensitive data by inspecting the content of files based on set policies and taking appropriate action.

Today’s successful businesses run at the speed of light, requiring employees and corporate assets to be available and accessible 24x7. Enterprises must find ways to allow rapid, flexible access while protecting themselves from serious risk. When employees travel with corporate data on laptops and other mobile devices, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage and control such data, or even know if it’s being protected, thereby creating a “mobile blind spot” that has the potential to wreak havoc on your corporate communications network.

Identifying key mobile blind spots and taking steps to protect data in transit is critical to protecting your business. This slideshow outlines five real-world tactics identified by Qwest that you can use to enhance mobile security in your organization. These tactics will help provide your workforce with the flexibility it needs to be productive anywhere, anytime, while protecting valuable corporate assets and the enterprise network against imminent security breaches and risk in an expanding mobile world.
