Recently there was much discussion in Davos Switzerland about the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The key characteristics of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is speed, connectivity, and change. But as with all major changes, there needs to be some countervailing forces to prevent extremes from ruining the revolution. When automobiles started traveling at faster and faster speeds, they became dangerous for their drivers and passengers. The answer wasn’t to cripple the automobile from traveling at higher speeds. The answer was first seat belts and then ultimately air bags that made traveling at higher speeds safer.
Endpoint data protection is to the mobile workforce what airbags are to faster automobiles. Your mobile workforce is traveling with greater speed, connectivity, and change. This means the risk of data loss, data breach, and mobile workforce productivity disruption becomes more and more likely from lost or stolen laptops, smartphones and tablets. The answer isn’t to place greater restrictions on your mobile workforce and reduce productivity. Rather, the best thing to do is make your mobile workforce data safer through continuous offsite backup, remote data delete, and end to end encryption and key management.
Making it safer for your mobile workforce doesn’t end there. You need to be able to anticipate the growing dangers to your mobile workforce. One of the reasons Datacastle is a Gold Cloud Platform partner with Microsoft is because of the investments Microsoft is making in analytics and fighting cybercrime. For Datacastle customers on Azure, as Microsoft raises the bar on cybercrime intelligence and analytics, they will reap the benefits from our partnership.
If you wouldn’t send your workforce out in cars that didn’t have seat belts or airbags, you shouldn’t send your mobile workforce into the field without enterprise-class endpoint data protection based on world-class cloud security technology.
