[Infographic] Manage the Massive Increase in Devices

Are you ready to manage the massive increase in devices? There are over 2 billion mobile devices shipping every year and over 28 billion IoT devices projected to be active by 2020. 

It Doesn't Stop There

More devices means more apps which means an explosion of data, which means more security threats than ever before. So how do you discover, update, manage and secure all of these devices? Today’s network is more vulnerable than ever due to the rise of these personal devices, BYOD, IoT and a growing mobile workforce. Managing and securing this massive increase in devices is now more important than ever before.

Check out this new infographic and see just some of the challenges and imperatives you have to deal with to address this ever growing trend. 

To learn more about how to efficiently manage and secure a wide range of corporate and user-owned devices, be sure to read our new e-book, Technology Tunnel Vision: Why endpoint management without network security is putting your organization at risk.

  • 3 smartphones, 2 tablets, 3 smart tv´s, 2 tv´s and 2 blue ray players with internet access, 3 computers and some other devices, only at home. that says it all.

  • good info

  • They're here whether you want them or not.

  • Seriously how connected do you have to be? I saw a co-worker yesterday with 2 phones, apple watch, laptop and tablet at her desk... What's the point...

  • more and more connected devices!!!

  • Downloaded the e-book

  • We don't really need IoT, but, as robondra says, it's here anyway.  We can't just ignore it and hope it goes away.  

  • Way too many devices!  It also doesn't help that users can't be "inconvenienced" with security settings from IT.

  • It is definitely here for us.  We have a ton of apps for the ipads and chrome books alone.  They need to be configured correctly so they don't get apps unless they are ones the schools make available.

  • Hasn't touched my organization yet, but between work and home I have about 10 devices that I personally use on a regular basis all for different purposes. Good info here. I work for a medical group and security is of the utmost importance.

  • Haven't had to deal with this much yet, but burying our heads in the sand about it isn't going to make it go away either, so it's best to be prepared.

  • IoT is here if I like it or not. Just need to learn to secure it.

  • Central management of BYOD shifts the work for IT - we can skip the parts where we are teaching users how to work on unfamiliar platforms and focus on the asset-protection parts.

  • More info that will help keep me awake at night trying to secure everything.
