For all of its benefits, enterprise mobility comes with some significant security risks. There are the physical risks of a device becoming lost or stolen. And there are the digital security threats of viruses and malware.
Moreover, how does a company contend with the conundrum of storing corporate data safely on an employee-owned device? That in turn raises the question of which mobile devices are appropriate for use in the enterprise?
