b2ap3_thumbnail_bring_your_own_device_mdm_400.jpgMobile devices are challenging the traditional perception of the office environment. When employees bring their own devices to work, this is called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and it’s an increasingly popular trend. Initially thought of as a threat, BYOD is proving to be a valuable option for businesses wanting to increase productivity, so long as it’s regulated properly.

b2ap3_thumbnail_password_locks_400.jpgVirtually every kind of online account requires a password.

You’ve just been the target of email spoofing, and it’s more common than you might think.
