When it comes to keeping your data secure, every business knows – or should know – the importance of having some kind of backup. However, this understanding doesn’t come with automatic knowledge on how that business should go about getting the right backup technology.
Almost every modern mobile device allows you to send and receive emails, download and upload media files, store data, and even close business deals. As mobile devices have become indispensable in everyone’s personal and professional life, the security risks have also increased — and backing them up has become more critical than ever.
Imagine this. You receive a notification that the nuclear power plant you work in is about to explode. You’re in the plant’s breakroom—dead center in the building. Isn’t it a little too late to receive this news?
Chances are, you don’t work in a nuclear power plant.
Securing mobile devices is incredibly difficult. They often have privileged access to sensitive data that they connect to via unprotected network connections. Virtualization vendors are finding ways to include solutions to these problems in their products and they’re perfect for small businesses.
