In recent years the desire for mobility in the small and medium business (SMB) sector has been increasing exponentially. In fact, 52% of SMB employees travel for business purposes 4-5 days out of the month. To avoid drops in productivity business owners are looking to mobilise their workforce through computing solutions that cater to remote working demands, however, with a mobile workforce also comes business concerns and with respect to SMBs, the biggest concern lies in security, as SMBs are the most at risk of losing critical data files, accounting for 61% of reported breaches. The question is, how do you go mobile while also remaining secure?
