Using the 80/20 Rule to Cut Mobile Security Costs

The Pareto principle, commonly referred to as the 80/20 rule, states 80% of effects derive from just 20% of causes. This theory can actually be applied to BYOD and your mobile security strategy. Here’s how.

By segmenting mobile workers into categories based on access privileges and perceived risks, small-to-midsize companies can avoid the drawbacks of a one-size-fits-all approach to BYOD and mobile security.

For instance, it’s possible that 80% of your workers won’t be handling highly sensitive data on their devices. Some will only need occasional access to work email. This means 20% will need broader security and additional apps.
