Securing laundry tub to tile floor

I just finished tiling the laundry room floor with ceramic tile. The laundry tub previously was screwed to the floor but now that it is tiled what is the best was to secure it? I don't see a way to secure it to the wall.

Any help would be appreciated.

I would have made the holes prior to installing in case something were to happen but a diamond tip drill bit will easily make the holes!

Does it need to be secured to the floor?

I would also avoid securing it to the floor if at all possible.

Perhaps you can jiggery pokery a clip, bracket or whatever and attach it to the wall.
Of course it depends what is on the walls.

Attaching to the wall would be my first choice. You could also glue the feet to the floor with adhesive or caulk. Caulk won't be totally secure but it would help hold the sink in place if it gets bumped. Then, my last choice would be to drill holes through your new tile. Hopefully you are lucky and your feet are on top of grout lines. If not you could attach angle brackets to the tub's legs then screw the brackets down through grout joints.
