Security & Mobility Now
Security is top-of-mind everywhere, especially right here where Juniper experts share their thoughts on the latest security breakthroughs and product advancements

Anytime, anywhere connectivity. Hyperconnectivity. Call it what you will, but what it equates to is we – me, you, and just about everyone in the worldwide workforce – are always connected to something.  We not only want, but many times need to be connected, wherever we are.

 

In their most recent quarterly report on today’s global, mobile workforce (The iPass Global Mobile Workforce Report), iPass, a worldwide leader in managing mobile connectivity for large enterprises and global carriers through mobility and cloud services, reported that 88% of those surveyed work from the road, including 84% from  coffee shops, restaurants or bars.

This has caused a significant spike in mobility costs, which in turn has driven up the mobility expense incurred by many enterprises today, especially those with worldwide globetrotters.
