Have you ever considered what might happen if you or one of your people lost a laptop? If that device still had access to all your company files and someone else accessed it.

An inconvenience. And not a crisis.
There’s really no disadvantage in adding this extra element of protection.
And it could just save your business from a disastrous data breach…
