Report suggests most companies fail to secure corporate mobile devices

A report by Kaspersky Lab in association with market research specialists B2B International suggests most companies fail to pay adequate attention to securing corporate mobile devices and the data stored on them.

The survey was conducted amongst over 5,000 senior IT managers from companies around the world.

34 per cent of senior IT Managers said their organisations and companies did not use dedicated Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions.

The advent of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) and the growth of Android mobile devices around the globe has seen mobile threats evolving dramatically over the last two years, according to the report.

Also of interest is that there has been an explosive growth of mobile devices specifically targeting Google’s mobile operating system, Android.

An example of a potential mobile device breach is that a breach could be caused by a “malware infection or an employee losing a device; the result is the same – data is lost or, worse, falls into the wrong hands.”
