IBM Mobile Security Infographic

The IBM Managed Security Services team published a new infographic on mobile security challenges. The increase in "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) and consumerization of IT is driving an increase in the number of smartphones and tablets in the enterprise.   The key value of mobile devices is the ability to access applications and "get work done."  Mobile applications can be native, web, hybrid and virtual.  Securing data and applications is a challenge and there are many factors to consider including:
  • Lost and stolen devices 
  • Data leakage
  • Unauthorized access to corporate resources
  • Spread of malware infections from mobile devices to the company network
