Question: How do I deal with personal data on business mobile devices?

Rainer Enders, VPN Expert and CTO, Americas, at NCP engineering

A good data separation strategy is critical for any bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environment. There are special data separation tools available  that are designed to help companies implement data security policy and specific data handling procedures for business versus personal content. For example, document stores and document catalogs allow an organization to enforce security on company documents, preventing them from being copied, transmitted or shared. Selective wipe will also remove all company-related content from a device.

These security operations are focused on company-owned content. It’s important to take care that personal information is not touched, as this can lead to privacy issues that are in violation of applicable laws and regulations.
