Mobile Security Strategies

This IDC Insight outlines some of the key issues that need to be considered when embarking upon any form of mobile computing initiative in an attempt to help organizations avoid losing data and customers in an increasingly unsafe environment. The mobile computing revolution has fully arrived and organizations are rushing to take full advantage of the workforce efficiencies and customer intimacy that a mobile strategy can provide. Amid this euphoria is a growing number of security concerns and incidents that an "anytime, anywhere" computing and customer-facing strategy brings with it. Key to a successful mobility security strategy is knowing who and what this covers. All too frequently this is delivered as an internal-only approach, whereas IDC believes it needs to embrace customers and partners for relevant organizations, and be more holistic than simply focusing on employees only.
