Old Mobile Devices Might Be Hurting Your Business’s Security

One of the greatest things about today’s technology is that it has grown more mobile, and some employees like to bring their own devices from home to use for their workplace. This is called BYOD, and while it is useful sometimes, it might be putting your business at risk.

If your employees seem to change smartphones as often as a teenager, they probably have old devices lying around their house collecting dust. However, these devices could hold valuable information on them that could be accessed by anything – or anyone. Your old devices, with security measures that have fallen out of favor in recent years, might be putting your data at risk. So, what can you do about it?

Whitelist and Blacklist Mobile Apps
By allowing certain apps to access particular information while others can’t, you’ll be able to effectively secure most sensitive information. Think Tank NTG can equip your business with a mobile security solution that allows you to do this, as well as mobile device manager technology that allows you to restrict what your company’s mobile devices are capable of.

Securely Access Your Email
One of the biggest ways that hackers can access your information is when it’s in transit to and from your smartphone and its destination. Your email is at the greatest risk of being accessed for this reason. If you receive malicious email or are browsing insecure or compromised web pages, the threat becomes very real, and your information is in danger.

In order to protect your job, your company, and your own personal information, integrate a mobile security solution from Think Tank NTG. You’ll be able to work and send emails with nothing to fear.
