Re: No Clue? The 45 percent-- encryption
The data point about encryption is kind of misleading. If 13 percent of respondents say they don't enforce encryption on mobile devices, that means 87 percent do. That seems to me like a pretty good statistic.

Re: No Clue? The 45 percent
The encryption portion of this is the most astounding part to me ... We've had encryption for email for how long, but it seems too alien a process when the device is in the palm of our hand. Easy encryption on mobile devices lets people use their devices (that they're using anyway) and keeps IT managers from stabbing themselves in the eyes.

Re: dirty words
Paul -- Why do you think MDM is so underutilized? Cost, effectiveness, technology issues, users?

dirty words
MDM seems to be dirty words to IT. Mobile devices have been around for some time now and security is still a big issue. Companies adopt BYOD in some form but have no means to manage it correctly.

Re: Mobility fallout -- encryption
If 13 percent don't enforce encryption on mobile devices using my massive abilities in arithmetic, that means 87 percent of enterprises do enforce encryption. I guess that puts you in the majority, Li.

Re: Mobility fallout -- encryption
Marilyn, this is not a suprise to me. People are eager to get email access, etc. working on their mobile device. As long as it works, they will not bother to enforce the security rules. I think the best approach for the enterprise would be configuring the system so that no unencrypted/unprotected access is allowed.

Mobility fallout -- encryption
Anyone surprised that 13 percent of respondents don't enforce encryption on mobile devices that contain enterprise data?

Re: No Clue? The 45 percent
Hi Marilyn - Definitely a combination - What I personally consider key is having the management flexibility in  the tools and tech to not only ensure a policy is enforced, but actually deliver the flexibility needed to guide its development -- especially if policies start off too rigid/control-centric and are being ignored.

Re: No Clue? The 45 percent
Thanks, PeterJW. What are the  "techniques you've seen that are effective in controlling BYOD. Are you speaking of policies or technologies or a combination of the two.

Re: No Clue? The 45 percent
"The installation process is rather tedious and time-consuming. Furthermore, I do doubt its effectiveness."

That's a killer assessment, especially from someone who is tech-savvy and not your typical end-user/employee. If a tough, unenforceable BYOD policy turns off even the "believers," then mobile security has truly run amok. There must be a better way.
