Assessing Top IT Challenges Supporting the Mobile Workforce
Title: Assessing Top IT Challenges Supporting the Mobile Workforce
Duration: 30 min.
Mobile workers are typically on the front-lines, out seeing customers or almost exclusively mobile – like your local police force. But their mobility makes them some of the most challenging workers to support, especially with many workers using commercial file-hosting services that are beyond your control - making compliance, in support of regulations like GDPR, a huge challenge. Moreover, the fact that they’re working outside of the traditional data center exponentially increases the risk of malware - think ransomware - creeping into the organization and data leaking out.
And the problem is getting more severe with each passing year. IDC says that by 2020 more than 70% of the workforce will be mobile. In this webinar we’ll examine the needs of the mobile worker, how to help them be as productive as possible, and how to insulate the company from the risks and threats their mobility introduces.
We’ll dig deep on:
- Strategies to keep workers up and running
- Methods to secure and protect mobile systems
- Options for controlling data access
- Challenges with commercial file-hosting services (OneDrive, Google Drive)
- Enabling compliance in a mobile world
