Computer technology developer Dell has outlined some of the most important practices businesses should embrace if they wish to boost the security of their confidential files and reduce their need for data recovery expenditure.
With significant growth in the number of businesses embracing BYOD policies over recent years, one of the first things companies are advised to do is to create a network infrastructure that is optimised for safeguarding remote access to files.
In addition, the encryption of all data being accessed via mobile devices should now be a mainstay of business data security policies, as by encrypting data during transfer, IT departments can significantly reduce the risk of confidential being intercepted in a usable format.
Finally, firms should also implement strong identity and access management solutions across all of its corporate data systems.
This means users will have to verify their identity prior to being able to transfer or view confidential business data and should act as an important line of defence against data breaches or loss.
