In our last post we talked about supporting mobile users and the increase of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ practices. Here is a great article from Gartner that speaks to some of the security concerns related to BYOD’s.
“Shifting from an enterprise-owned mobile device fleet to having employees bringing their own devices has a major impact on the way of thinking and acting about mobile security,” said Dionisio Zumerle, principal research analyst at Gartner. “Policies and tools initially put in place to deal with mobile devices offering consumer-grade security must be revised to deal with these devices being under the ultimate control of a private user, rather than the organization.”
If you have any comments on how your company manages mobile security with BYOD’s we’d love to hear!
