In today’s business environments, mobile devices make up the fastest growing segment of computing devices—outpacing desktop and laptop computers. As more employees prefer to use mobile devices in the workplace, organizations are rapidly moving towards a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) model—allowing employees to use their own mobile devices for business purposes. This often leads to employees having a mix of corporate and personal applications on the same device, which gives the security team less control over devices that can access corporate networks.
As a result of the increase in wireless devices in the workforce, organizations are becoming more concerned with mobile security. Many, in fact, see this area as a primary technology challenge to address and a main focus for security initiatives.
