Business practice has changed considerably over the last decade. With more advanced and affordable technology available and advances in mobile communications, the amount of mobile communications has increased immensely and this seems set to increase in years to come. Of course all businesses are very aware of security issues with mobile technology as far as computers and laptops are concerned.
Virtually no one uses a laptop for personal use, let alone for business use, that does not have anti-virus programs and all the necessary software to prevent infiltration where possible. So it seems strange that the vast majority of mobile phones, smart phones and pocket PCs have no security or mobile antivirus software. We simply do not think about them in the same way as we think about a laptop or PC, but they are just as vulnerable.
In order to protect your business interests all mobile technology that your staff may use off premises should be secure. From mobile phones upwards you need to start thinking about security. Getting mobile antitheft software on the company mobiles means they can not only be blocked, but they can also be wiped. You can have mobile antivirus on phones and pocket PCs together with mobile antispam and a host of other security options.
