Organisations are embracing mobile computing, but with this movement come the risks of attack and breach if they do not approach security of data and access to company resources in a secure manner. It’s not only the device that requires securing but also the applications and data installed processed, stored and produced on the devices (often not enough attention is paid to these), the applications have the capability to open doors to potential security risk. Many organisations are unaware of the extent of risk presented by applications; rather looking at the application functionality above their security and this is a mistake.
