New iPhone Raises Smart-Phone Security Concerns
Enterprises should keep an eye on managing smart-phone security in preparation for the arrival of the new iPhone.
With the new version of Apple’s iPhone on the way, enterprises need to be ready to deal with the security implications of employees’ smart phones.
Whether IT organizations are ready or not, smart phones are a reality for enterprises. Gartner analysts predicted in a January report that smart-phone sales will reach about 173 million in 2008, a jump of 42 percent from last year. The iPhone 3G, slated to be available July 11, is Apple’s latest attempt to capitalize on consumers’ desire for Internet-enabled phones with more and more functionality.
