The first and best defence in securing BYODs begins with the same requirements you apply to devices that are already on your network. These security measures include:
Enforcing strong passcodes on all devices
Antivirus protection and data loss prevention (DLP)
Full-disk encryption for disk, removable media and cloud storage
Mobile device management (MDM) to wipe sensitive data when devices are lost or stolen
Sophos Mobile Control allows your organisation to have total security and centralised control of devices, alleviating any weaknesses within the organisation.
If you have any concerns over BYOD security or want to check that your organisation is handling it in the correct manner feel free to call one of the Minerva team and we can discuss your options with you free of charge.
