You may have realised the need for protecting your business data, and you may even have implemented IT policies to help you do so. Unfortunately, for all the good intentions of IT policies, they present such an inconvenience to employees that they often aren’t respected. Instead of following the company policies, which usually involves saving files on shared and secured network drives, they save their files, documents, spreadsheets and other important documents where it is most convenient – on their unprotected laptops.
Most companies have mobile employees who travel, go to external meetings or work from home, and bring their laptop to and from work and meetings. This makes upholding IT policies and ensuring regular backups of their computers a challenge.
