Many organizations understand that traditional perimeter security defenses are not effective at identifying attacks on mobile devices.
BYOD programs and policies empower people to choose the best device to get their work done, including personally-owned consumer smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Today's emerging security technologies for cloud and mobile give IT organizations more control, while also protecting employee privacy.
Exposure to risk is as much of a threat today as it was in 2013; however, organizations have become less diligent in BYOD management and mitigation, according to TEKsystems.
Privacy from employers is the top concern for employees being asked to use their own devices for work purposes, according to AdaptiveMobile.
