"While enterprise mobile technologies have not seen the same frequency, or severity of threats and malware as traditional PC endpoint computing, security and mobility management teams are starting to look for additional layers of security and the mobile device endpoint," says Phil Hochmuth, program director, Enterprise Mobility at IDC. "Many enterprises see mobile threat management software tools as a valuable frontline level of defense against mobile threats, as well as an emerging security technology requirement from a compliance standpoint."
