Prevention of unauthorised intrusion into the corporate network and protection of confidential information are considered by IT professionals as two major task for ensuring corporate infrastructure security, according to a survey conducted by B2B International.
About 31% of those polled during a survey conducted in July 2012 said that preventing cybercriminals from infiltrating the corporate network is most important task.
About 27% of those polled said that information protection is the second biggest task for the IT department while problem of controlling the use of mobile devices is ranked third.
Among those surveyed about 13% regard work with Mobile Device Management (MDM) is third most important task, though about 55% of companies are seriously concerned about the security of mobile devices.
In order to ensure protection, companies resort to backup copying, combatting data leakage caused by staff, thwarting cyber-attacks.
IT professionals also try to ensure the safety of confidential information to prevent it from cybercriminals.
The report suggests that there should be some restrictions for the installation and launch of software on corporate devices with access to business information and services.
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, the report added.
