The reality

Protect your network

In today’s connected world people can work anywhere, anytime. Armed with smart devices, they want to access, consume, create and share information wherever they are for work purposes. And that’s great – because it means they can be more productive. But it could pose a serious security threat if it’s not managed properly.

With more and more people using their own devices for work, you need to protect your network, data, corporate applications and ultimately your brand. You need to be able to control who can access what, whether they’re on a mobile phone, tablet, smartphone or computer.

Giving you the tools and technology to unlock new ways of working.

Find out how people can collaborate – wherever they are and in whatever way they need to, while you keep control of cost and security.

The problem

The right tools for secure collaboration

Without the appropriate security measures, you could be vulnerable to serious security threats – people inside and outside your organisation may have access to things they shouldn’t, employees might be able to access your corporate network and applications using unsecure connections, personal and company-owned devices could go missing without protection for any corporate data they contain.

If you don’t address these problems you could jeopardise your entire network; leaving it open to deliberate intrusion and malicious attacks, increasing the likelihood of confidential information falling into the wrong hands, and potentially wreaking havoc on your brand’s reputation and value.

  • 68 per cent of organisations globally have experienced a mobile security breach – taking up valuable IT resources, and negatively impacting the customer experience and perception of their brand.
  • A single significant mobile security breach could cost over £30,000 to identify and fix.
  • You could face hefty fines for compliance breaches.

It all adds up, year on year. With the tools for secure collaboration, people could be trusted to collaborate anywhere and keep productive, while you have peace of mind around security concerns. And you could focus the time and money saved on identifying and fixing security breaches on business critical projects.
