re: 7 Ways To Toughen Enterprise Mobile Device Security
Before integrating smartphones and/or tablets into corporate IT, companies should develop a concept for their mobile business. Afterwards it will be much easier to choose a convenient enterprise mobility solution. With the right management tool, you can manage and monitor devices, users, apps and policies. If you want to get to know more about mobile security, check out Cortado Corporate Server's mobile secuity topic page.

re: 7 Ways To Toughen Enterprise Mobile Device Security
In regard to encryption becoming mandated, that alone will not ensure compliance with regulations requiring breach notification in my opinion. To avoid this unpleasantness (I'm being mild) data wiping with confirmation would be required.

And there's a practical reason, not just to meet compliance. Here's an example: a bank did the right thing encrypting data on its laptops (applies to smartphones also). So when one was stolen, no concern, right? But what happened is the employee used a sticky note for the encryption password for the usual reasons: too complicated to remember, changed too often, etc. With data wiping in place, as soon as the device is reported stolen, erase the data and no reporting requirement and no loss of data that could harm a company.

I suggest including monitoring activity on laptops and smartphones. This helps deal with either intentional or inadvertent loss of sensitive information. Also provides accountability in terms of productivity as well as quality control of communications.
