Mobility/BYOD Security Survey

Mobile devices are more pervasive in businesses today than in previous generations of computing (desktops and laptops). Mobile apps on these devices are used for both personal and business purposes. According to the International Association for the Wireless Telecommunications Industry (CTIA) report released in the fourth quarter of 2011, there were more mobile devices in the United States than people!

Smart devices have also caught the attention of attackers who are now commonly targeting their rich apps--and their access to even more valuable backend data such as bank accounts, corporate (organizational) intellectual property and personal health information. For this reason, there has been a marked increase in mobile malware.

To understand and address risk in this growing mobile segment, SANS performed its first annual mobility survey of more than 500 IT professionals. The survey's intent was to determine the type of mobile device usage allowed for enterprise applications and what level of policies and controls enterprises have around this type of usage. To find out the results, download the paper.
