Is the smart phone you are using, secure enough for your business related work? Yes, your phone is more secure if it is an iPhone or a BlackBerry. But if it is an Android, it can’t be banked up on as much as that of Apple and RIM. Check Point, an IT security solution company comes out with this breaking news. The company carried out a survey on 768 IT executives in the Germany, US, Canada, UK and Japan to collect data. The IT company has found iOS on top in corporate environments, which is alarming, taking into account current market shares of Apple. However, it is just one step above BlackBerry. The survey tells that Apple iOS has 30% share, BlackBerry 29% and Android only 21%.

As for corporate networks, Android has been found as the least secured platform owing to greatest security risk. On the other hand, BlackBerry is sill as good as it was. Perhaps RIM is one step above iOS, because it has Mobile Fusion that links common management platform for BlackBerry iOS and Android OS. Mobile Fusion makes platforms more secure and easy to manage. That’s why RIM has been able to get back its grip in the enterprise along with making it desirable for mainstream customers.

Here are some main points of the report.

Corporate networks use mobile phone devices extensively.

-89% people of corporate world have mobile devices such as smart phones, iPod and tablets etc.

-Apple iOS is the most sought operating system in corporate world.

-Almost 65% organizations admitted that their executives have personal mobile devices apart from company owned devices so as to connect with corporate network anytime.

-Country wise, Japan has the least 46% where personal devices are allowed while Germany is on top with 81%.
