The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.

The security risk is further heightened by the proliferation of employee-owned mobile devices in many enterprises. Employees will almost always take the path of least resistance in leveraging mobile devices for business purposes, which may lead to unsafe computing practices. A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
