CompTIA Security+ Question F-97

A security administrator has concerns regarding employees saving data on company provided mobile devices. Which of the following would BEST address the administrator’s concerns?

A. Install a mobile application that tracks read and write functions on the device.
B. Create a company policy prohibiting the use of mobile devices for personal use.
C. Enable GPS functionality to track the location of the mobile devices.
D. Configure the devices so that removable media use is disabled.

Answer: D

Mobile devices can be plugged into computers where they appear as an additional disk in the same way as a USB drive. This is known as removable media. This would enable users to copy company data onto the mobile devices. By disabling removable media use, the users will not be able to copy data onto the mobile devices.
