The number of evolving threats and targeted attacks are on the rise and businesses with constrained resources can be hard pressed to provide adequate protection. For example, ransomware grew by 36% this past year and has moved to the mobile space, putting Android and iOS users at a higher risk than ever before. Not only are these threats increasingly sophisticated and diverse, attackers are now targeting organizations of all sizes. In 2015, 65% of all targeted attacks struck small and mid-sized organizations.
With the trend moving toward Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the growing demand for choice, IT is stretched thin. Gartner research indicates that 70% of mobile professionals will conduct their work on personal smart devices by 20183. For a business with a limited IT staff, the onboarding, protection, and management for users and all of their devices can be daunting. The need to address advanced threats with limited resources requires a solution that delivers advanced protection made simple.
