A full 45 percent of companies surveyed in Verizon’s 2022 Mobile Security Index said they experienced a mobile device-based compromise in the last 12 months, and most reported the impact as major.

Organizations of all sizes struggle to manage endpoints that need access to corporate applications and data. They often have limited visibility into their fleet of corporate-issued and personal devices. Additionally, policy enforcement is complex and achieving regulatory compliance can be a headache.

Is This Device Trustworthy?

There are key security posture checks organizations should perform before granting access to determine whether devices are trustworthy:

  • Is the device managed?
  • Are the operating system (OS) version and the patch level up to date?
  • Is the enterprise antivirus (AV) agent installed and running?
  • Is the host firewall enabled?
  • Is disk encryption turned on?
  • Does the device have a password set?
  • Is the mobile device rooted or jailbroken?

In this guide, you’ll learn about the challenges of establishing trust in the devices, both managed and unmanaged, that are accessing corporate data and applications. You'll know the considerations that must be made to ensure only devices deemed trustworthy have access, and how Duo helps you improve device visibility, assess device security posture and enable continuous trusted access.
