Frontline develops security solution in response to GDPR

In preparation for Europe’s new data security requirements next May, the consultancy has developed a mobile device management solution.

Ahead of the introduction of the general data protection regulation (GDPR) across the European Union (EU) next May, Frontline Consultancy has launched a new mobile device management solution specifically aimed at companies who allow staff to bring and use their own devices for work along with corporate devices.

“Every year over 500,000 personal mobile devices are stolen in the UK, many of which contain access to sensitive business data, which could breach GDPR,” says the firm. The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution “allows companies to actively manage all devices used by their staff members allowing them to safeguard data at all times as well as ensure GDPR compliance.” It offers full visibility of all devices attached to the company’s network as well as the ability to reset access, lock and – in extreme circumstances – wipe the data held on the device.

“We have launched our new mobile security solution because so many companies do not realise how vulnerable they are to data breaches by allowing staff to use unmonitored and unsecured devices,” said Caine Fearn, managing director at Frontline. “It is a common misconception that just because a mobile device is locked data is secure.”
