Zix Staff

What BYOD challenges, security risks and technologies are companies responding to in 2014?

Find out by joining our webinar on July 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET when we showcase findings from the recent BYOD & Mobile Security Spotlight Report conducted by Holger Schulze of Information Security Community.

More than 1,000 IT decision makers were surveyed about the mobile threats facing their organizations and the BYOD solutions and strategies being used to combat them.

During this webinar, Holger and ZixCorp expert Geoff Bibby will discuss new BYOD insights, surprising trends and fresh perspectives on the state of mobile security. A Q&A will be opened up at the end.

Highlights from the report include:

  • The key drivers for BYOD are about keeping employees mobile (57 percent), satisfied (56 percent) and productive (54 percent)
  • The biggest BYOD security concerns are loss of company or client data (67 percent) and unauthorized access to company data and systems (57 percent)
  • The most common risk control measures are password protection (67 percent), followed by remote wiping of data (52 percent) and use of encryption (43 percent).
