Security Finally a Top Mobility Priority Across the EnterpriseOn Wednesday, Good Technology shared with MMW the key findings of its Q1 2014 Good Mobility Index Report.

The key finding from the new report is that organizations have finally declared security as a top IT concern in 2014,

The data shows a monumental increase in activations of more complex secure enterprise apps, most notably secure browsing, the company reports.

Overall, secure enterprise app activations continued to see an impressive growth rate at 57 percent quarter over quarter, up from 54 percent and 43 percent growth from the last two quarters respectively.

“This is not surprising given recent data from the 2014 State of Endpoint Risk report published by The Ponemon Institute which highlights that within the IT environment, mobility and third party applications pose the greatest security risks,” Good Technology reports. “In a survey of IT and IT security practitioners with involvement in endpoint security, 75 percent of respondents noted mobile devices such as smart phones represent the greatest risk of potential IT security risk, followed by the increase in the risk associated with third party applications.”

The total number of secure browsing app activations across Good’s customer base “skyrocketed” this quarter by 2900%, boosting it to the fifth most-activated app category.
