They bring their own mobile devices and apps to work, more mainstream applications are deployed in the cloud and the widespread use of social media blurs the boundaries between corporate and personal use. With more sophisticated security threats and greater control required of employee access across multiple devices and locations, VADS Cloud Based Web Security allows companies to focus on the delivery of business requirements rather than the deployment and maintenance of infrastructure," he added.
