Startup Mobilisafe Tackling BYOD With Mobile Risk Management
Seattle-based startup Mobilisafe is still in stealth mode, but the company recently peeked out to talk, in general terms, about how it addresses IT challenges stemming from the bring your own device (BYOD) trend.
Last November, Mobilisafe launched a private beta of its as yet unnamed mobile risk management product, which analyzes mobile devices that are connecting to a company's network. Gathering user data in the intervening months has enabled Mobilisafe to identify BYOD usage trends it deems relevant to SMBs.
For example, more than 80 percent of employees are already bringing their own smartphones and tablets into their company network, and 56 percent of iOS devices are running outdated firmware, according to Mobilisafe. And 39 percent of total authenticated devices were inactive for more than 30 days, raising fears among SMBs about corporate data on devices being lost or stolen.
