The BYOD trend is causing new security concerns for enterprise network and data security. Corporate users (e.g. employees, contractors) are accessing enterprise network and data, and bypassing corporate security controls using their personal Wi-Fi devices. This uncontrolled access can open wireless backdoors into the enterprise network, malicious activity, leakage of sensitive data, and exposure to malware.
A recent survey conducted by AirTight Networks among 316 IT and Security professionals revealed that while most thought that BYOD could increase productivity and lower costs, there is a high level of concern around the security challenges presented by smart devices accessing corporate networks and a real need to find solutions to address the challenges.
