Tip of the Week: Mobile Data Management

There are hundreds of things that a business owner has to do, so managing the security of the data coming in and going out from mobile devices might not make the hierarchy of considerations that need to be immediately addressed. Today, we will take a look at why paying attention to the mobile end of your business is so important, how Mobile Information Management (MIM) helps with that, and how MIM fits in with the rest of your mobile strategy. 

What is Mobile Information Management?

With so much data being sent and received, there needs to be a strategy that keeps the most sensitive of it from being stolen. A mobile information management platform is a security strategy that allows an organization to keep its most sensitive data encrypted and protected. Typically utilized in the enterprise space, smaller businesses are now expressing interest in adopting such a system - although if they are to do so, they may need to shift their expectations to line up with their budgets.

One of the main benefits of a mobile management platform is how it can expand upon your organization’s security. Mobile devices have become an essential business tool, which makes it essential that these businesses have a strategy to help control data access and minimize the risk of their confidential data being stolen or intercepted.

A mobile information management strategy should be just one portion of your organization’s policy on mobile security. By working alongside mobile device management and mobile application management policies, mobile information management adds a protective layer of security to help greater protect your endpoints and critical data.

Tips to Up Your Mobile Security

There are a variety of ways that you can help keep your data safe while using mobile platforms, including:

  • Backup policies - It should come as no surprise that hackers often target mobile data. There seems to be a ceaseless river of attacks, whether you’re referring to phishing attempts, ransomware infections, and other insidious activities that regularly put data at significant risk. Backing up data prevents the risk of data loss in the case of an attack.

  • Mobile device management - You need to make sure that you can properly administer and manage the company data on mobile devices, which a mobile device management solution can assist you in doing. Whether you need to control access, manage your data and applications, or monitor your company’s mobile applications, MDM solutions can be a benefit.

  • Access restrictions and limitations - You need to be able to control your data, which is greatly helped by the capability to put restrictions on its usage. By putting caps and limits on who in your organization can access what data, through which applications, you can greatly limit the chances of a data breach.

  • Mobile security audits - The better handle you have on the operations of your security solutions, the more effectively they will be able to operate.
