Enhancing Security as Business Complexity Increases: As enterprises, service providers and mobile operators plan for the future, security remains top of mind with the emergence of new technologies and the rise of IoT driving people to use new services and methods to access apps and data. Citrix and the Ponemon Institute released a global survey confirming the security risks associated with business complexity and outdated, inadequate technology. The study found that 68 percent of business respondents said their organization’s BYO devices might be allowing criminals to access corporate networks and data. And 75 percent say their organization is not fully prepared to deal with the potential security risks resulting from IoT. Learn more about the Citrix and Ponemon Institute survey findings – part one and part two – and, read the blogs from Citrix VP and CTO, Christian Reilly and from Citrix CSO, Stan Black.
