Faced with the realities of the consumerization of IT, many organizations feel pressured to increase their support and management of consumer mobile devices. At the same time, IT and information security organizations are responsible for providing acceptable levels of data protection and enterprise security. It’s a tall order to meet user demand for the devices while still maintaining an adequate security posture.
Recently viaForensics, researchers and practitioners in mobile forensics and security, published an in-depth analysis of the risks mobile devices pose in their report, “Mobile Security Risk Report – Understanding the security impact of iOS and Android in the enterprise.” What sets this report apart is the research is based on forensic analysis of what’s actually on the devices. The viaForensics team uncovers information that would be overlooked by common mobile device management (MDM) tools.
