Cyberattacks will become more sophisticated and more common moving forward, and so all organizations must now operate under the assumption that they will be hacked. With Sony’s attack in particular, we witnessed the impact that an email breach can have on an organizations since it holds so much corporate value and sensitive information. The onus is now on businesses to arm themselves with the best security structure as a first line of defense, especially on mobile devices being brought into the enterprise. Secure email and collaboration tools, supplemented by containerization and authentication capabilities strike the right balance between user enablement and data security to ward off threats.
To keep data safe and avoid corporate liabilities, IT managers should look beyond Exchange Active Sync (EAS) and employ secure email and collaboration solutions so users have access to corporate information at all times, regardless of the device, while corporate data remains protected.
