Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security
company, today revealed the results of a recent online survey of 500 IT
decision makers in the U.S., Canada, Germany and the U.K., conducted in
January, 2013 by Harris Interactive on behalf of Imation. According to
the survey, IT decision makers are significantly less confident in the
security of data accessed by employees on the road or at home, despite
the fact that mobile device security policies are widely in place and
Key findings in the survey include:
"The confidence gap among IT security pros-despie enforced security
policies on mobile devices-demonstrates the disconnect between the
policies themselves and user behavior. The fact is that the policies
can't control what users do with the organization's data," said Lawrence
Reusing, Imation's general manager for Mobile Security. "Imation's IronKey™
solutions address the very different environments for employees
working outside the office, so that IT pros can be as confident in the
security of data accessed outside the office as they are in the security
of data accessed at workers' desks. Solutions exist today to eliminate
the confidence gap by placing a secure and very mobile workspace in the
hands of all workers, with centralized management and controls."
Additional Key Findings
The survey results are rich with insight regarding corporate policies on
smartphone and USB device usage, deprovisioning policies and IT decision
makers' concerns regarding the consequences of data breaches. Among the
