Cambridge, United Kingdom, October 09, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Excerpt from Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection, September 2013, by John Girard, Eric Ouellet

MDP is an established market with two primary purposes — first and foremost, to safeguard user device data by means of encryption and access control; and second, to provide evidence that the protection is working. Most companies, even if not in sensitive or regulated industries, recognize that encrypting business data is a best practice. Common motivations for protecting data are to comply with government or industry regulations, maintain privacy, and shield intellectual property. Legislation across the world mandates increasingly tough penalties, as well as requirements for public disclosure in the event of a real or suspected mishandling of personally identifiable information. Even if information is not misused, the public relations costs to quell negative public reaction are expensive. Gartner believes that the costs of a data breach are higher than the cost to invest in preventive measures, such as MDP.
