Infonetics: Employee-Owned “Rogue” Devices a Top Reason Enterprises Invest in Mobile Device Security



  Infonetics: Employee-Owned “Rogue” Devices a Top Reason Enterprises Invest
  in Mobile Device Security

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- February 7, 2013

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2013
Mobile Security Strategies and Vendor Leadership: North American Enterprise
Survey, which details enterprises’ plans for deploying security solutions for
mobile devices, as well as their thoughts on leading mobile security vendors.

ANALYST NOTE

“For many IT organizations, there’s an immediate need to do something about
the mobile device security problem because like it or not, a new wave of
mobile devices is being connected to corporate networks, and companies are
looking to lock down these devices and control which apps they can use,” notes
Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.

Wilson continues: “We believe that SSL VPNs will become a cornerstone of many
enterprise mobile device security strategies moving forward because they solve
an immediate connection security requirement, are familiar and easy to use,
often free, and will likely support additional security and control
functions.”

ENTERPRISE MOBILE SECURITY SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS

  * Around 1/3 of enterprises interviewed by Infonetics currently allow the
    use of employee-owned devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Android
    smartphones and tablets on their networks
  * Managing and securing rogue devices connected by users was named as a
    driver for deploying mobile device security by 72% of enterprises surveyed
  * Over 3/4 of respondents have purchased or are considering purchasing a
    cloud-based or hybrid cloud/client-based mobile security solution, with
    cost being the #1 driver
  * Roughly 1 million malicious or high-risk Android apps alone are
    anticipated this year, and Infonetics expects that nearly all enterprises
    will experience significant mobile device security incidents by 2015

MOBILE SECURITY SURVEY SYNOPSIS

For its 27-page mobile security survey, Infonetics interviewed
purchase-decision makers at 103 medium and large companies in the U.S. and
