As convenient as BYOD is, one issue stubbornly persists; that is the issue of privacy and security of data.
A recent Harris Poll survey, commissioned by MobileIron queried over 3,500 mobile workers from all over the world.
Only 61% of them feel that their employers are keeping their personal data private.
