Why MDM often fails to meet users' expectations

While various MDM offerings aim to bridge the growing gap between IT security requirements and mobile workers’ demands for access to company data on-the-go, they often fail to meet the user experience test, and as a result, are ineffective in preventing the use of unsecure consumer file sharing services like DropBox.

In order to successfully regain control over your sensitive company information, you need a data access and sharing strategy that combines high levels of data security, with the high-quality features and speed end-users have come to expect.

Inside this exclusive resource, discover the key steps to take to implement your own business-approved mobile data access and sharing policies and tactics that will offer the encryption and security features IT needs and the instant, easy access employees demand.
