In the growing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend, different industry verticals have varying needs for data security. Government, Pharmaceuticals, hi-techs, financial services and healthcare industries are generally demanding newer solutions to provide secure data access to their increasingly mobile workforce.

This is why IT’s ability to offer access to personal and corporate data on the same mobile device to employees will determine the popularity of a company’s BYOD policy. Click to view larger image
