IT leaders lately have started recognizing the importance of investing in mobile solutions. The expectations people have are centered on the fact that nearly every adult has a mobile phone, and so people are growing accustomed to having relevant data available to them at a moment’s notice.

As more mobile devices are added to a network, so too are there many more access points to company resources. For a company to ensure that their network remains secure, taking measures that protect data accessed from mobile is imperative. Using multi-factor authentication and single sign-on scenarios are some of the way to protect data while also still allowing users to access the resources that they need.
