Westport, CT January 25, 2016 — According to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC), the U.S. mobile worker population will grow at a steady rate over the next five years. By the end of the forecast period, IDC expects mobile workers will account for nearly three quarters of the total U.S. workforce. Key drivers behind the growth in the U.S. mobile worker population include the increasing affordability of smartphones combined with the growing acceptance of corporate bring your own device (BYOD) programs. Ardent Partners estimates that 45% of the workforce will be self-employed, contractors and temps by 2017.
A rise in the mobile workforce creates a need for endpoint based security. Remote workers are consistently a vulnerability in terms of data security and productivity for many corporations. The need for endpoint based security goes beyond traditional anti-virus programs as there is an increasing need to monitor remote workers for data leaks (both unintentional and malicious), as well as to ensure proper/productive use.
Employees increasingly want to work remotely and companies want to hire the best people regardless of where they are located. While there are pros to having a mobile workforce, there are also cons that corporations need to consider. How do you supervise remote workers? How do you make sure that they are not leaking or stealing confidential company info? Endpoint Security Monitoring is necessary in order to properly manage a mobile workforce.
