With IDC projecting the mobile workforce to grow beyond 878 million globally by 2009, the report, “Comply on the Fly: Keeping Pace with the Management Challenges of Mobile Data Management,” explores whether businesses are implementing initiatives to provide internal controls and address data security risks from mobile device use.
Among the findings:
- Nearly half of all respondents report that a minimum of 25 percent of
all mobile devices in their organization carry mission critical
applications and information
- 40 percent of respondents have no measures at all to manage mobile data
tracking, back-up and archiving for regulatory compliance purposes
- Smaller companies ($100 million in revenue and under) face a greater
risk of violations with just 32.4 percent implementing formal mobile
- There is disconnect between IT executives who recognize mobile device
compliance and security risks, and C-level executives who see benefits,
