Diligent administrators insist on the strongest encryption and enforce the toughest authentication policies — over the air. Because not all mobile devices support encryption, email and attachments stored on the device can easily be viewed by anyone. Security-conscious IT professionals ensure that all data gets strong AES 192-bit encryption — even data that's in transit between a device and servers behind your firewall. All information is secured throughout a complete end-to-end system.

Let's face it: IT administrators in America's top corporations have their hands full protecting company information in a world gone mobile. Smartphones, and the smart employees who use them, can often circumvent security procedures, forwarding confidential memos or attachments to other phones or alternate email accounts without consideration for the vulnerability of that information.

Rather than limit access to information, today's IT departments are finding new ways to safeguard the behaviors of their mobile work force — regardless of the devices they choose — and prevent data loss or leakage across their networks. Here are seven habits Good Technology, Inc. has identified for how they do it.
