Get your enterprise content (safely) into the hands of your mobile workers

Last week I wrote about finding a better way to use sync technologies so that all employees can access the information they need, on the device they choose.

Be an IT Superhero

We know IT departments have long been the Hero in any organization – working to protect sensitive information from villains, and help the technologically-challenged navigate the perils of the BYOD. It’s a big job and one that would certainly be easier with superhuman powers.

Getting Jumpy About The Cloud?

I read an excellent article in The Register that, for me, was a leap forward in understanding the issue of data sovereignty. The author, Aaron Milne, makes the killer point that it doesn't matter who owns the data but "who has supreme power and authority over your data."

He asks the question:

Headed to the gas station? Hold on to your mobile phone!

Studies show that most of us will lose a smartphone at least once this year. With employees using their own personal devices with free consumer grade apps for device sync, mobile file sharing, and public cloud back up, this can be a big problem for the enterprise. Interestingly, where the “oops” moment happens might depend on where you live according to a recent study.
