- 78 percent think phone makers do not focus enough on security, but 71 percent allow employee-owned devices to access their organization's network.
- Only 24 percent deploy some form of app monitoring or control to grant visibility into employees' devices.
- 84 percent feel Apple iOS is "more secure" than Android and 93 percent of respondents allow iOS to access their network. Only 77 percent allow Android devices, and in something of a surprise, 13 percent say they allow rooted Android or "jailbroken" iPhone devices onto their networks.
- 96 percent allowing personal devices also allow employees to access email using the device, while 85 percent allow access to company calendar data.
The potential for trouble in all this, according to Bit9, is that apps that can access all this user data could become the open door for hackers to exploit in the future.
