As companies start using the cloud for certain services, they will need to be convinced that safety issues are resolved.
When staff need to work anytime and anywhere, a business can easily become exposed. Businesses and personal users need an easy way to protect themselves, whatever their device or platform.

Although the number one threat for mobile devices is losing them or having them stolen, malware is an ever evolving problem too. It's key that mobile end-points are treated like any other to safeguard businesses (says Kaspersky. I hope they make their presentations a bit snappier. This is exactly what everyone else is saying!)
As more consumer technology is used for business, Kaspersky will be offering tips on how you can secure your clients.
