2016 BYOD and Mobile Security Report
- “Security Concerns” is the #1 inhibitor for not implementing BYOD
- 39% of mobile devices downloaded malware
- 21% experienced a security breach through the use of mobile devices
BYOD programs promise to add speed and agility to our increasingly mobile workforces but they come at a cost. Security concerns, employee privacy, and overburdened help desks are some of the top reasons BYOD programs are not progressing.
We surveyed over 800 IT security professionals and are providing a summary of the responses. Download the report today to determine how your program compares amongst your peers.
Twenty-four percent of survey respondents stated their BYO or corporate devices connected to malicious Wi-Fi. Nearly half of the respondents were not sure whether their devices had or had not.
Thirty-nine percent of the surveyed organizations reported that BYOD or corporate-owned devices have downloaded malware at some point in the past. More than one-third of the surveyed respondents said they are “not sure” if malware has been downloaded in the past. This indicates a lack of or ineffective monitoring of BYOD and corporate-owned devices in the workplace.
When we asked the survey respondents about the number one inhibitor to BYOD adoption in their companies, 39 percent cited security concerns. For the IT and security teams inside organizations, this points to potential security gaps or weaknesses that need to be addressed.
