Here are some solutions that can help keep your mobile devices more secure.
- Endpoint security: As organizations embrace flexible and mobile workforces, they must deploy networks that allow remote access. Endpoint security solutions protect corporations by monitoring the files and processes on every mobile device that accesses a network. By constantly scanning for malicious behavior, endpoint security can identify threats early on. When they find malicious behavior, endpoint solutions quickly alert security teams, so threats are removed before they can do any damage.
- VPN: A virtual private network, or VPN, is an encrypted connection over the Internet from a device to a network. The encrypted connection helps ensure that sensitive data is safely transmitted. It prevents unauthorized people from eavesdropping on the traffic and allows the user to conduct remote work safely.
- Secure web gateway: Secure web gateways provide powerful, overarching cloud security. Because 70 percent of attacks are distinct to the organization, businesses need cloud security that identifies previously used attacks before they are launched. Cloud security can operate at the DNS and IP layers to defend against phishing, malware, and ransomware earlier. By integrating security with the cloud, you can identify an attack on one location and immediately prevent it at other branches.
- Email security: Email is both the most important business communication tool and the leading attack vector for security breaches. In fact, according to the latest Cisco Midyear Cybersecurity Report, email is the primary tool for attackers spreading ransomware and other malware. Proper email security includes advanced threat protection capabilities that detect, block, and remediate threats faster; prevent data loss; and secure important information in transit with end-to-end encryption.
- Cloud access security broker: Your network must secure where and how your employees work, including in the cloud. You will need a cloud access security broker (CASB), a tool that functions as a gateway between on-premises infrastructure and cloud applications (Salesforce, Dropbox, etc.). A CASB identifies malicious cloud-based applications and protects against breaches with a cloud data loss prevention (DLP) engine.
