Introduction

Whether for ensuring business continuity or enhancing workforce retention and productivity, more organizations are embracing mobility, work-at-home and flex-time for their employees. To achieve business goals with a mobile and remote workforce, having a robust and reliable access security service has never been more critical. A key element of ensuring reliable mobile access is maintaining security updates, but maintenance can disrupt service and performance. Organizations need to maintain a flexible work environment without losing availability, but deploying a highly available service can be complex, costly and time consuming.

Effective cybersecurity must include secure mobile access

Providing mobile access in today’s anywhere/anytime, hyper-distributed world opens an explosion of exposure points over a myriad of potentially insecure mobile endpoint devices. Human fallibility and risky online behavior mandate that employees cannot be trusted to ensure the security of their own mobile devices.

Moreover, the array of threat types is expanding, deepening and getting smarter, including targeted ransomware, never-before-seen threats, memory-based malware, side-channel attacks and encrypted threats. Ultimately, the security of your mobile network must match that of your wired network.

IT must also secure access from these mobile endpoints with limited budgets and skilled staff resources. This means streamlining deployment, availability and support to lower total cost of ownership.

Best Practices: Simple, safe and agile mobility

To be effective, cybersecurity must provide mobile employees with easy and secure 24/7 access to key business resources in an agile, easy-to-use, cost-effective and scalable way.

This requires a zero-trust posture regarding any mobile device attempting to connect with corporate resources, whether those resources be on-prem or in the cloud. Secure mobile access is a core component of a zero-trust approach to anywhere, anytime access.
