Report: Businesses at risk from unreported mobile device theft

Part of a company embracing mobile devices is ensuring tools are in place to remotely wipe sensitive data from a smartphone or tablet if it is lost or stolen. A new study from Kaspersky Lab identifies an obvious and concerning fact, though—those tools offer little value if the missing device isn’t reported.

If the device wasn’t locked at the time of its loss or theft, whoever is in possession of it may still be able to access the applications and data it contains.
