SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management solutions, today announced the results of the nCircle 2012 Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Trend Study. The company surveyed over 547 respondents in the IT security industry including senior management, IT operations, security professionals and risk and audit managers.
Highlights from the study include:
- 85% of respondents said their organization enforces their mobile security policy, a 29% increase from 2011
- 71% of respondents said their organization has a mobile security policy, a 9% increase from 2011
- Only 68% of respondents believe their organization adequately enforces their internal IT policies
“Mobile device security has clearly eclipsed social media concerns from an IT policy perspective,” said Andrew Storms, director of security operations for nCircle. “The number of companies that enforce their mobile device policy has increased 29% over the last twelve months, a sharp contrast to enforcement of social media policy, where compliance is stable or dropping. Companies clearly realize that the security risks associated with social media aren’t nearly as serious as those associated with BYOD, and they’ve adjusted their focus accordingly.”
