Understanding the full range of risks to enterprise data from mobility

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints.

Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs
also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current
PC security controls to your mobile fleet is ineffective. Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile-specific security.

To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobile
Risk Matrix. Its purpose is to help security organisations
understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to
provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.
