Mobile Data Protection (MDP) is the technology that applies data privacy guidelines by managing data encryption on the principal storage system of a workstation in various data storage platforms, such as solid-state disks, removable media and hard drives used in alliance with smartphones & workstations. It consists of an offline/stand-alone agent for removable media, an active endpoint agent for the target device and a central console. Mobile data protection (MDP) is used for securing data on mobile storage systems including removable media, smartphones, and laptops. It also provides unified protection policies across multiple platforms. To protect mobile data, information technology administrators must know the entire intricacies of mobile operating system, determine which devices to allow in the workplace and understand the native data protection. Protecting corporate data from theft or loss is a priority for any organisation. Data breaches are pricey and painful, and their effects can range from regulatory sanctions to brand damage. Support for secure device wipe and native device level encryption varies. However, Because of this, it is common for IT shops to apply a two bifurcated approach to securing mobile data. First, they enforce and establish minimum criteria for the acceptance for the outside device willing to enter into the company network, then they back fill platform weaknesses with third party technologies for mobile security. There are various ways of protecting mobile data including remote data wipe for mobile devices, mobile device locks, mobile activity monitoring & audit and encryption of stored data on mobile devices.
Increasing bring your own devices (BYOD) trend among organizations resulting into several threats for the organization including data loss and others. This is driving the adoption of the mobile data protection by various organizations. Mobile data protection also provides various user benefits for the organizations. For instance, it keep employees productive and maintain operational efficiency with transparent decryption and encryption that causes virtually no disruption to any system performance and users. It allow users to store, access, transfer and share data securely. Furthermore, it simplifies security management, which means enforce and implement company broad security policies that control user authentication and data encryption all from a central platform. It also supports compliance with external and internal security regulations.
Significant amount of spending on IT infrastructure for the implementation of the mobile data protection system can challenge mobile data protection market. However, large and established enterprises with significant budget are spending on building a secure IT infrastructure.
