6. Encryption, Mobile Control
Small businesses shy away from encryption and have no mobile control on their employees' smartphones typically teaming with corporate data, Hagerman said. Sophos launched SafeGuard 6.1 to manage Mac FileVault and Microsoft BitLocker encryption in one console. Support was recently added for Windows 8 and 8.1, and full file and disk encryption is supported on Macs. Sophos Mobile Control also was recently launched with both SaaS-based and on-premise versions. A single license supports multiple user devices. The company's capabilities stretch across device and application management, email and device encryption.
