As the number of smartphones capable of accessing enterprise resources increases, it’s important to remember that smartphones operate more like a computer than a phone.  Smartphones work so well as a portable office because they have the capability to browse the Internet.  That capability means your employees are at risk for viruses and other security breaches, so IT staff need to be just as vigilant with company-issued phones accessing the network as they are with computers.
