According to Industry News, “Mobile security isn’t a technology problem, it’s a people problem.” In fact, current studies report that 82% of corporate network breaches involve human issues because corporate security systems create friction in using security systems so many employees work around the security measures.
Much of the friction is about ease of use and performance on mobile devices. That’s one of the many benefits of Mobolize’s Data Management Engine with SmartVPN®. Intelligent traffic management can help address the bad user experience problems created by legacy VPNs. Mobolize’s patented technology not only secures endpoint devices, but it also ensures application and service compatibility while minimizing performance impacts to the device and data, including battery drain. In addition, the Engine provides Wi-Fi and cellular bonding on smartphones which seamlessly augments poor performing Wi-Fi with cellular connections that eliminates dead zones, resulting in a better user experience.
Our partners have seen this: users accept a legacy-styled security app but become frustrated with their smartphone’s performance. They blame the enterprise’s app and turn it off resulting in unprotected access to websites and apps. Users then become vulnerable to security threats on their mobile devices and can create entryways for hackers to access enterprise or small business networks.
But with an improved customer experience, smartphone users are more likely to adapt and maintain app usage. We’ve proven this with industry leading application retention.
