Mobile & Wireless: Best Practices

  • Even if a wide-scale handheld rollout is not in your organizations plans, look into on-device encryption software for those workers who do use and synchronize corporate data on handhelds.
  • Secure mobile users links to company networks with VPN software.
  • When evaluating data synchronization software--be it desktop- or server-based--keep your organizations options open to various platforms, both in terms of operating system and groupware back end.
  • Help mobile workers make the most of their devices by providing them with software for viewing and editing documents, such as spreadsheets and PDFs.
