Mobile Device Management an Issue for SMBs

btn_download_report.pngA new report from Timico looked at the challenges faced by UK SMBs in terms of the consumerization of IT and the BYOD policies in the UK.

According to the research, 72% of businesses were concerned about employees bringing their own devices to work, with a third of businesses lacking a policy to cope with BYOD. 43% of respondents reported up to 20 lost devices in the last year, while an astounding 31% reported 20-100 lost devices.

It is clear that businesses of all sizes, including SMBs, are struggling to meet the technology demands by employees. While BYOD is a valid solution to this, security precautions have not kept up, putting sensitive information at risk.
