UK staff confident in their company mobile security
"More than three-quarters (77%) of employees in UK businesses are not concerned about security issues when using their company mobile phone, according to research.
The figure was higher than the European average (74%) in the study, but lower than Germany (82%).
This finding is a key indicator of the level of confidence that employees have in the mobile security that their companies provide, according to HID Global, which conducted the research.
Such attitudes to mobile security could pave the way for other smartphone-based security features – such as the ability to open doors with mobile devices – to become commonplace in businesses across Europe.”
