As more and more employees are using wireless devices, the IT staff still seems entirely focused on securing desktop machines and the company network. The weak link in all of this may be the lack of security for mobile devices. The security challenges for mobile devices are a bit different from in-house IT as well – since the biggest security threat is simply leaving a device somewhere where it can fall into the wrong hands. Of course, this is the type of thing that companies will slowly start to realize as they begin hearing more cases of security breaches due to poor mobile device security.
