The Mobile Enterprise Is An At-Risk Enterprise

Putting an enterprise-wide embrace on everything that can fall under enterprise mobility--including laptop computers, personal digital assistants, cell phones and removable media--has become a delicate balancing act between cost, management, risk assessment and compliance with a growing list of regulations.
"You have to balance how many locks, how many keys, how many hoops and how many doors you're going to jump through with how many people. The final decisions are based on your exposure and risk," says Gregg Davis, senior vice president and CIO for Webcor Builders, a San Mateo, CA-based commercial builder. "It's all about risk assessment, and you weigh your vulnerabilities and plug your holes based on business objectives and goals."
