Download In today's business environments, mobile devices make up the fastest growing segment of computing devices - outpacing desktop and laptop computers. As more employees prefer to use mobile devices in the workplace, organizations are rapidly moving towards a bring-your-owndevice (BYOD) model - allowing employees to use their own mobile devices for business purposes. This often leads to employees having a mix of corporate and personal applications on the same device, which gives the security team less control over devices that can access corporate networks.

As a result of the increase in wireless devices in the workforce, organizations are becoming more concerned with mobile security. Many, in fact, see this area as a primary technology challenge to address and a main focus for security initiatives.
