Mark: Hi, everybody, Mark Bowker here, Senior Analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group, and today I want to talk about balancing productivity with security. It's the number one question I get asked when I'm talking to IT professionals out there. They're all asking about, we want to adopt mobility beyond what we're currently doing today, beyond maybe, a BYOD policy, beyond what they're doing with mobile device management, beyond what they're doing with file sync and share, potentially. But, setting that dial accurately, about, how can I keep the user productive while still maintaining security, is something they still wrestle with.
So, I'd say, anybody out there with products, with solutions, looking to market into these individuals, really help provide that guidance and maybe even assessment into their existing environments. They know how to set that dial accurately. We know that 46% of IT professionals really are looking at that security skill set to be blended with that IT skill set to really further advance their mobility strategies through research we've done.
