Mobile Device Security Woes

(Jon Oltsik, NetworkWorld) Large organizations now realize that endpoint security (and management) extends beyond PCs to mobile devices like Blackberrys, Droids, iPhones, iPads. Mobile device security is one of those areas that should get more attention. Users want better data security and integrated solutions.

So which security technologies are most important for mobile device protection? According to a recent ESG Research survey, here are the top 5:
  1. Device encryption (51% of respondents rated this as "very important", 34% rated this as "important")
  2. Device firewall (48% of respondents rated this as "very important", 37% rated this as "important")
  3. Strong authentication (46% of respondents rated this as "very important", 41% rated this as "important")
  4. Antivirus/Anti-spam (45% of respondents rated this as "very important", 37% rated this as "important")
  5. Device locking (44% of respondents rated this as "very important", 41% rated this as "important")
