The days of BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) to work are here and as a result, so are the concerns that come with employee texting, group chat and use of consumer apps. Security risks run high especially for organizations in industries that handle highly sensitive and private information on a daily basis (healthcare, financial services, government etc.).
According to telemessage.com:1
- 95% of employees send work related information over their smartphones
- 75% send sensitive or confidential information
- Only 13% reported to have regulations limiting the use of texting for work related tasks
These statistics are particularly troublesome when you think about how simple it is to share data with one click. A disgruntled employee can easily forward patient medical records, bank account numbers, resident addresses, social security numbers and other sensitive material with a simple tap of the “send” button. Or information can be shared unintentionally – a misplaced or stolen phone can find its way into the wrong hands; connecting to free, unsecure Wi-Fi services can put data at risk.
Today’s 24-7 business environment requires simple and secure mobile messaging – critical communication options that are easy-to-use and come with enterprise-grade features.
