Focusing protection on desktops, laptops and network infrastructure is not enough. Because in reality the information, insights and outcomes harnessed from the IP will need to be made available to a remote and mobile workforce across the supply chain via a mobile platform.
The reality is, mobile devices are now the de facto platform for productivity in business. Today, the traditional computing devices upon which enterprises have focused their security and compliance efforts represent only 40 percent of the relevant endpoints. The remaining 60 percent of devices are mobile.
Fortunately, many automotive manufacturers realize mobile devices are an unprotected endpoint with access to or containing all of the information of a traditional endpoint. And while there are some overlaps in what you protect – email, calendars, etc., – the way you solve the traditional endpoint security problem is completely different than how you solve the mobile security problem.
