CDW-G recently released a Federal Mobility Report looking into how US Federal employees use mobile devices. Given the mandate to limit agency-purchased data devices, and the growing BYOD trend, this report gives insight into how Federal employees are using mobile devices in the workplace. The report also touches on agency security preparedness for the increase of employee-owned devices.
Insights from the report:
