Reducing the Risks in Mobile Computing

by Joanie Mann, Noobeh Director of Cloud Delivery

Remote and mobile workers have relied on portable computers for years. Once a secret weapon and now an essential business tool, laptops and portable devices have enough power and storage capacity to be essentially seamless extensions of the business office.

Executives and mobile professionals can have all the information and analytical capability they need to make smart, informed decisions, capture important information, and keep productivity high no matter where they may be.

Yet extensive use of laptops and portable computers isn’t without risk. It has been estimated that as much as 80% of the data a company owns including product information, customer files, contracts and financial information is stored on portable computers.

Losing this data could mean the difference between staying in business or not.

Loss or theft of business data can create legal and disclosure problems, too. Customer privacy may be violated, sensitive information might be exposed or confidential plans made public. Your computers may be vulnerable to malware and other exploits buried in e-mail messages, websites and file attachments, not to mention wireless network eavesdropping or signal interception.


Companies must protect their data not simply to protect the business operation but to avoid excessive risk due to disclosure of protected information of employees, customers and other entities. Businesses are legally obligated to protect certain types of information that may be stored in their records and should consider the potential ramifications – legal, financial and otherwise – if the data were to fall in to the wrong hands.
