  • Variety of tablets and smart phones used in the workplace; people using Phone, iPad, and Android devices instead of corporate-sanctioned BlackBerry
  • Departments deploying Software as a Service bypassing IT
  • Smart Drives synced in the cloud to phone home devices
  • Employees demand to use their personally preferred mobile devices, personal computers, applications, social media, and cloud services and will find a way
  • 40% of devices used to access business applications are personally owned by iWorkers, up from 30% in 2010.
