As the workforce becomes more mobile, enterprises wishing to facilitate a productive mobile workforce need to ensure that their workers have access to information. This means that mobile users must download and share information that could be detrimental to the organization if it is acquired by an outside agent. Yet, almost weekly we hear of another major breach of an organization’s central security perimeter. If the central data vault can be compromised, it raises the question: how safe is your data on mobile devices?
Mobile devices share information over public networks and they make it easy for users to share information with public cloud storage services. Worse still, they are easily lost or stolen. It makes a lot of sense, then, to leverage a tool like Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS) to encrypt your most sensitive data—especially when it is shared with mobile users.
