Today's enterprises support an assortment of end-user devices, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, and, of course, smartphones. Not only do employees use a variety of form factors, but they run a variety of platforms on those devices, including:
Apple iOS and Apple macOS
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms for example, Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Microsoft Windows 10 or anything in between. In addition, IT is being tasked more and more with managing and securing wearables, ruggedized devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).

A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
