The post below comes from Ashley Furness of Software Advice, discussing her recent research on “Strategies to Secure Your Enterprise in the New World of BYOD.” Hope you enjoy it!
“Hello everyone! My name is Ashley Furness and I am a marketing analyst for research firm Software Advice. I cover emerging trends in CRM, sales, marketing and help desk solutions, such as Wavelink’s Avalanche and Avalanche Remote Control. I’d like to share some research I recently completed on tips for your help desk to combat BYOD-created risks.

But sensitive corporate data is very likely vulnerable to theft on employee-owned mobile devices.
