Virtual Solution - Security vs. Usability – Secure work on mobile devices made simple
In IT-Security, employees seem to be the risk factor number one: sending confidential information with their private email accounts, connecting to unprotected wifi hotspots, and clicking on questionable links. Especially when it comes to mobile security, the dynamic environment with changing devices, complex infrastructures, and numerous applications seems to be unmanageable. But is it really the employee, who needs to react? When security measures are so high, that working efficiently and comfortably becomes impossible, they get ignored. The crux is then, to combine both security and usability in one single approach. A solution has to be secure and easy to use, not only for the employee, but also for the administrator.
Containers put internal company data, emails, contacts, calendar, notes and documents into a separate, encrypted area. The data is then secured on the mobile device – no matter if it is private or company owned and protected from unauthorized access, loss, or manipulation. A container app that is easy to use and install does not require training for employees but can be put to action immediately. If the container can be rolled out in a few simple steps and security measures are easily configurable, then the IT department can save time and money.
Containers provide a strict separation between corporate and private data and fulfill the requirements of the EU-GDPR. The solution is platform-independent, and therefore available for iOS and Android and adapts to different infrastructures seamlessly. Thanks to encrypted data at-rest and in-transit, containers provide a secure and controlled access to corporate data – anywhere, anytime.
