    • 21% of companies have no restrictions on the use of personal devices – while 58% have lightweight policies and only 20% have stringent guideline – this I got from a USA Today article;
    • 40% of organizations responding to a recent McAfee survey reported mobile devices lost or stolen often involve the loss of critical business data
    • More than 50% of large enterprises expect to purchase tablets for employees over the next year - from Morgan Stanley
    • 50% of firms have embraced a mobile platform strategy
    • 60% of firms provide some support to personal devices (Forrester Fall 2010)
    • 56% of enterprises allow personally owned smart phones to access company resources
    • 16% of CIOs and IT leaders see mobility as a critical priority and 46% see it as a high priority (Forrester September 2010)
    • 75% of organizations deploy mobile applications to increase worker productivity, and 65% to increase worker responsiveness
    • 61% of enterprises will deploy 2FA mobile devices to their executives within 12 months, 59% to field service employees and 58% to their sales force (Forrester Technology Adoption Profile commissioned for Entrust)
