ABSTRACT
The article discusses security issues surrounding the use of mobile devices by businesses. A study from International Data Corp. showed that almost half of the companies surveyed reported significant use of mobile devices to send and receive business-critical data. The author notes that mobile devices are vulnerable to loss and theft. According to the author, though mobile devices often carry information such as patient, customer, and employee records, less than 20% of that data is encrypted to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.
