I had the opportunity to contribute to Microsoft TechNet UK’s blog about a topic near and dear to many companies’ hearts today: mobility. Speaking personally, I have the IBM Lenovo laptop that AvePoint issued to me where I do most of my work, but I also use my Asus ultrabook at home, my Apple iPhone, and my Microsoft Surface tablet depending on where I am at any given time. Simply put, the days of just using company-issued technology are over. The proliferation of technology means that we can be more flexible in when, where, and how we do our work. This does, however, present potential headaches for organizations trying to ensure their precious intellectual property and data do not fall into the wrong hands. I cite a recent Forrester Research study on data privacy and security that found nearly half of all data breaches in 2013 were accidental in nature. So employees, just trying to do their jobs, mistakenly released data that they shouldn’t have – which can cost millions of dollars and even permanently destroy a company’s reputation. Enterprises today have a choice: They can embrace the future or they can bury their proverbial heads in the sand. To learn how we believe enterprises can start addressing the mobile revolution in order to be flexible, agile, and a business enabler, please visit the TechNet UK site.
