Mobile devices such as smartphones and media tablets are now a necessary tool for nearly all work occupations - from knowledge workers, to field force workers and even to many office-bound and low-skill laborers. Employees use them for voice, messaging, and data communications and they are dual persona devices - used for business and personal reasons. Most employees have purchased these devices themselves presenting IT administrators with challenges of defining policy for use particularly if accessing corporate networks and data sources. Unfortunately for business decision makers, mobile device capabilities vary not only across device type but also by OS and OEM; further complicating the enterprise mobile device market is a fragmented and highly competitive supplier environment.
