A new survey outlines the practical experience of IT/security professionals over the increasing use of personal devices within their business environment during the last 12 months.

Coinciding with Ovum’s third BYOX World Forum, Check Point has today released its second mobile security report: The impact of mobile devices on information security. Conducted by Dimensional Research, 790 IT professionals with a security responsibility from the US, Canada, UK, Germany and Japan were queried on their BYOD experience. The overwhelming response is that BYOD is growing dramatically, security is the biggest concern, and that BYOD security incidents are costly.
