The adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies by enterprises in the Middle East is accelerating, but not without ongoing security concerns. Aruba Networks, a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, conducted a survey of Middle East IT Decision Makers during GISEC, Saudi Gazette reported. The survey found that nearly 60% of organizations either already support BYOD or intend to do so in the near future. Still, ongoing security concerns reflect a general lack of preparedness in managing employee mobile devices, which is holding back broader adoption. Most interestingly, the three main security threats to enterprise mobility were perceived to be vulnerabilities associated with the Android operating system (40%), device theft or loss (31%) and employees leaving the organization (30%), all of which can be effectively mitigated by utilizing the appropriate mobile management solutions.
