Organizations of all sizes are tasked with supporting an increasingly distributed workforce, ensuring productivity, collaboration, customer service, and security regardless of where end users are located. At the same time, the devices that people work from are multiplying, creating management and security challenges that further tax limited procurement, IT, and financial resources. While these problems may seem relegated only to large enterprises, the reality is that midsize companies find themselves in the same position and are left with fewer resources dedicated to overcoming them.
Too often, problems are addressed only after issues arise, and this reactive approach leads to tactical solutions that ultimately increase the sprawl of tools, devices, and apps that need to be managed and secured. These tactical solutions require resources to implement and support, which further contributes to the increased demand on operational personnel.
