A survey of 410 security professionals worldwide about mobile security by Dimensional Research and Check Point Software Technologies found organizations ill-equipped to handle security breaches - even though 94% believe attack frequency will increase. While 64% are unsure whether they can avert a mobile breach, 79% say it's getting more difficult to secure these devices.

According to the report, mobile devices in organizations are subjected to a broad range of attacks, with malware and phishing attacks topping the list. One-third of companies are aware of existing risks, and 34% believe data loss can be bigger on mobile devices. Most don't secure their devices, and more than 60% attribute this to a lack of resources or experience, and 37% say there's not enough risk for such an investment. Only 38% have security in place for mobile devices.

Around 24% have no idea if they had been breached or corporate data has leaked from their devices.
