Data leakage continues to be a major concern for businesses nationwide. Undoubtedly, the traditional workplace landscape is changing in ways that make protecting data more and more challenging. With a growing number of businesses now able to offer employees remote access to their company networks and infrastructure, the need to secure mobile technologies has increased dramatically.

Although there is always the potential threat of malicious outsiders hacking into company systems and gaining access to proprietary or confidential information, businesses generally feel well protected against these intruders with traditional firewalls and anti-virus software. Companies are finding that the most challenging sources of data leakage are internal, most often as a result of employee mistakes or carelessness. Without the proper security measures in place, employees can unknowingly put extremely important data at a very high risk of accidental exposure.

Fortunately, organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the data risks posed by internal sources, and are taking the appropriate measures to minimize the occurrence of such breaches.
