mobile securityMany employees use their own devices for both personal and corporate tasks. In fact, some organizations encourage workers to choose their preferred smartphone or tablet from a retailer, and IT adds email and corporate access to the employee-owned device.
There are savings and productivity benefits, but BYOD can also open the organization to security risks. Corporate data, improperly secured and
potentially co-mingled with personal items, can be easily exploited. Often these devices are also used by family members with no regard for application security. Some are even rooted or jailbroken.
