This IDC study takes a look at how the tsunami of mobilution affects organizations across Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) or APEJ and the IT security challenges in 2011. IDC believes that at this juncture, IT departments are no longer able to ignore the usage of mobile devices and should take another look at IT the security measures required.
"IDC feels that the mobile phenomenon and the challenges it will come with will sort itself out as it matures over time, making it more manageable", says Ang Poon Wei, senior market analyst, Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Until it happens, organizations will face increased complexities and challenges that revolve around mobility and IT security. Maturity will only ease challenges — not eliminate them — and it is important that CIOs and IT managers begin to consider this before it gets too late," Ang adds.
