According to a new survey conducted by the Enterprise Device Alliance (EDA), organizations may be making progress in securing mobile devices.
The fourth annual survey, “EDA Mobile Survey," sought to understand how IT administrators are coping with the impact of smartphones and tablets on organizations.

Despite this, many organizations still consider security a challenge and are eager for thought leadership and tools to help lead the way.
