Mobile Security Still Needs More Work in Most Enterprises
Enterprise Mobility Exchange recently surveyed its audience on security threats to corporate-owned devices. The survey sought to discover the biggest mobile security threats today and to learn how much visibility enterprises have into the mobile devices its employees are using. Among the findings:
Although many enterprises provide devices for employees and they are aware of mobile security threats, numerous organizations lacked real-time visibility in the devices.
Nearly half of the respondents could not say whether their company has been the victim of a mobile security breach in the past year.
Sixty-six percent of enterprises allow mobile workers to operate a corporate-owned device without a VPN. Moreover, 64 percent lack security rules that audit when a user connects to a public Wi-Fi or carrier network.
Top perceived risks include data leakage and phishing attacks. Yet more than a third of the enterprises surveyed do not provide employees with mobile security training. Furthermore, 93 percent of enterprises have mobile security policies to mitigate the above risks. However, 28 percent do not enforce them.
More of the findings are contained in this infographic.
