The train has already left the station, though, with the proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace. In a survey last year, researchers at Decisive Analytics, a business intelligence company, found that out of IT executives and CEOs of larger companies surveyed, nearly all companies (76.7 percent) allowed employees to use their personal devices such as laptops, netbooks, smartphones, and tablets for work-related activities. However, nearly half of companies allowing BYOD reported experiencing a data or security breach as a result of an employee-owned device accessing the corporate network (46.5 percent).

Brighter Outlook Ahead

Juniper Research predicts, meanwhile, that nearly 1.3 billion mobile devices including smartphones and tablets will have mobile security software installed by 2018, up from around 325 million this year.

A number of stakeholders will need to get involved. While IT managers will cope with placing mobile malware under scrutiny and best-practice policies for BYOD, security and device vendors will also need to do their homework on how to offer protection in a user-friendly way.
