81 percent of surveyed employees connect to work network without permission

Smart phones and tablets are here to stay, but don’t underestimate the security threat that these devices can pose to your company’s network. In a recent survey od over 6000 users done by Juniper Networks, 81 percent of the respondents admitted that they have used their mobile devices to connect to their work networks without the employer’s permission or knowledge and more than half of them said they do so on a daily basis. That’s downright scary, especially when you consider the fact that the vast majority of smart phone and tablet owners don’t have any type of security software installed on their devices (anti-virus, anti-malware). A fourth of the U.S. respondents said they don’t password protect their devices. Find out more of the survey findings here:
