Survey: Indians Concerned over Mobile Security
Added On February 23, 2011
Due to the recent explosion in smartphones, personal devices are more frequently accessing the corporate network, and in turn, opening the door to a plethora of security risks. Forrester Research estimates 73 percent of the Global enterprise workforce will be mobile by 2012. Enterprises can only expect more consumers to use their personal devices to access corporate networks and sensitive information in the years ahead. Juniper commissioned a survey on mobile security and spoke to more than 6,000 smartphone and tablet users across 16 countries, including India. Ninety percent of the Indian respondents expressed concern for mobile security issues. The concerns in India were around phone/data loss (84%), parental controls (77%) and identity theft (87%). This clearly indicates that while consumers are embracing mobile devices like never before, mobile security has not kept pace. Today, Juniper Networks is changing this dynamic with its Junos Pulse Mobile Security Suite which is the industry’s first comprehensive solution that can secure, manage and control all smartphones. It is also the industry’s only integrated client that is able to deliver security and secure connectivity. The Suite protects smart devices from viruses, malware, device loss, theft, and other threats. It remotely backs up and restores data and can be used to lock, wipe, and locate devices in the event of theft. Today, Juniper solutions help secure the majority of the IP network traffic within the United States. It is also the global leader in the SSL VPN market.
