Security is the most important reason why companies need flawlessly functioning mo- bile management. In today’s companies, up to 80% of the workforce use personal devices for work, while only 30% completely trust their pri- vacy. People work from a mix of locations, on multi- ple devices. Productivity is shifting outside the boundaries of the office, with the rate of mobile productivity steadily on the rise. Where typical workers already use 2 or more devices for work purposes, in 2016 innovative knowledge workers willuseupto5devices. According to the Gartner’s Top 10 Tech Trends 2014, this diversification of mobile devices is one of today’s biggest trends. This creates new, more mobile security challenges, and requires apt, modern ways of digital protection.
