When an IT administrator wipes a user's device, the user often feels wiped out too. By eliminating corporate data from a device, an employee may lose their personal contacts, favorite apps, preference settings — and a sense of privacy. But IT administrators who use app-level protection can selectively wipe corporate data while leaving personal data intact. This type of protection also prevents enterprise data from being accessed by third-party apps or intermingled with personal data. From inside “contained” applications, employees are free to collaborate with other employees, send attachments or edit documents — without behaving in an unsafe manner.

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.
