IT professionals prioritising data protection

Kaspersky Lab UK : 28 November, 2012  (Technical Article)
Study from Kaspersky Lab reveals the prioritisation of infrastructure security and data protection by IT professionals in business environments
IT professionals prioritising data protection

Preventing unauthorised infiltration into the corporate network and protecting confidential information are the most critical issues facing company’s infrastructure security, according to a survey conducted by B2B international on behalf of Kaspersky Lab. The survey asked company employees responsible for critical business decisions, including those related to IT security, to single out the three tasks they consider the most important for IT personnel.

Preventing cybercriminals from infiltrating the corporate network, was found to be the top issue, highlighted by 31 per cent of those surveyed. This was followed by information protection, chosen by 27 per cent of respondents. To deal with this issue, a variety of measures can be applied including: backup, copying, combatting data leakage caused by staff, repelling cyber-attacks and many others.

The third most pressing issue is controlling the use of mobile devices, with 13 per cent regarding work with Mobile Device Management systems one of the three most critical tasks. This figure is surprising low, since the survey also revealed that 55 per cent of companies are now seriously concerned about the security of mobile devices -  indicating that this concern is not being addressed.

It is essential to apply some restrictions to the installation and launch of software on corporate devices with access to business information and services. High-quality anti-malware protection is also required, especially for Android devices. In addition, smartphones and tablets must support remote administration, so that access can be blocked and information deleted in the event of the device being lost or stolen. High-quality protection against malware and remote blocking capabilities are provided by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Smartphone which also makes it possible to locate the missing device using an integrated GPS module.
