In December, Entrust and Forrester began work on a Technology Adoption Profile (TAP) whitepaper centering on mobile. As organizations have begun to accept the inevitable — the eventuality of mobile devices permeating networks and infrastructures — they are looking to address mobile security as a whole and not as siloed device types (e.g., corporate- and employee-owned). With this in mind, the report discusses bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and corporate-owned devices together.
Put simply, once mobile device ubiquity is accepted in an organization (and in customer bases in certain markets), the necessary steps will be taken to see business gains from these devices.
By addressing mobile as a business-enablement opportunity, organizations may make their internal teams and customers more efficient, productive and secure.
And for the elephant in the room: is mobile secure? YES. In fact, mobile devices are more secure than the traditional computing platforms.
