Goode Intelligence launches 2010 Mobile Security Survey

Press Release   •   Oct 19, 2010 11:36 BST

London, United Kingdom – 19 October 2010 – Goode Intelligence is pleased to announce it is conducting it’s Mobile Security (mSecurity) Survey until 10 November 2010.

This annual survey is the most comprehensive vendor-independent survey on mobile phone security.  The survey aims to determine the current state of mobile security within businesses across the globe.  It also examines how smartphones and tablets are altering the way that security professionals deal with enterprise security.

 Alan Goode, Director, Goode Intelligence said “This is the second year that we have carried out this survey and it will be interesting to see the changes from last year’s results where information security and IT professionals were only just becoming aware of the problems that devices running smartphone platforms pose.

“It has been a defining year for mSecurity with an increase in high-profile attacks on all smartphone platforms. The emergence of more open smartphone platforms, including Apple iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) and Google’s Android within the enterprise has led to a serious dilemma for information security and IT professionals. The fact that a high number of these devices are employee-owned intensifies the dilemma. There are critical questions that organisations need to answer; how does an organisation effectively manage the explosion of these Smart Mobile Devices (SMD) coming into the workplace and enforce an information security policy for them?  The Goode Intelligence mSecurity Survey 2010 will enable us to take a snapshot of the problems that organisations around the world are now facing with the arrival of these devices and ascertain if they are ready and equipped to deal with these unique challenges.”

All Information Security and IT professionals who are responsible for Information and Mobile Security within their organisations are invited to participate in the survey.  All participants will receive a summary copy of the final report findings and may choose to enter a prize draw to win a bottle of Vintage Champagne. 

The survey is open until 10 November 2010 and can be accessed at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/mSecurity2010

The results are expected to be published in November 2010 and will be available on the Goode Intelligence website: www.goodeintelligence.com
