IT professionals are concerned about the use of smartphones and tablets in the workplace, but few restrictions are being put in place to protect sensitive corporate data, according to a new survey.
The survey found a rising interest in mobile device management to manage security policies and place controls on device activity but noted few real deployments of the technology. The survey of 3,300 IT professionals was conducted by B2B International and Kaspersky Lab in 2012. Survey respondents were from 22 countries and all indicated they influenced IT security policy, Kaspersky said.
"The deployment level of dedicated tools to ensure the security of mobile devices [mobile device management] is still extremely low both in small and large companies," the company noted in the report, which was issued Thursday.
