Mobile devices are gaining a more prominent role in the corporate office, whether IT managers are happy about it or not. As a result, organizations have to develop measures to protect many new devices, and invest cloud backup to protect all this new data from the worst.
However, as recent reports have shown, it may not be outsiders that organizations need to be wary of. Instead, it's their own employees who present danger, offering IT managed services providers an opportunity to be an even greater partner in the mission to secure data and keep it safe - no matter what happens.
