Apple winning the enterprise security race, Samsung makes push
"The use of Samsung devices in the enterprise is approaching Apple levels, according to a Tech Pro Research survey. But the perception of how the vendors fare on security clearly leans in Apple's favour.
In this month's special report on mobile security, we've picked apart the state of the bring your own device (BYOD) movement, mobile device management and the security that goes with it. The short version of the special report notes that inconsistent IT policies are a big risk in mobile.
In addition, wearables are an emerging risk to enterprises, which are just starting to adopt them.
But what caught my eye was the perception of security with the key mobile vendors. Apple is clearly winning, but Samsung has been able to use Knox and its other technologies to position Android as enterprise-friendly. Add it up – and 67% of the tech decision makers surveyed were using Apple, while 62% were using Samsung.”
