Consumerization by the numbers at Interop

Here are some interesting stats about the consumerization of IT I picked up at Interop this week.

NEW YORK -- Here are some interesting stats about the consumerization of IT I picked up at Interop this week:

  • BYOD: 18% of organizations ban personal devices outright, and 37% allow personal devices to only access email. Just 17.7% allow them to access apps other than email.
  • Cloud file-sharing services: banned by 24% of organizations. Another 29% have no policy, and 22% allow certain approved services.
  • Mobility management: Only 14% of organizations have a company-wide, on-premises mobile device management deployment, with another 11.6% that have a partial deployment. Nearly 17% aren't interested in on-premises MDM at all, and more than half -- 56.5% -- aren't interested in deploying an enterprise app store.
  • Security: Between 23% and 25% of all Android devices are rooted, which can make them more susceptible to malware and harder for IT to manage.
  • Data usage: Mobile data traffic came in at 597 petabytes in 2011. For comparison, worldwide Internet traffic in 2000 was 75 petabytes.

Good stuff Colin. Though, the number of rooted Android devices strikes me as oddly high? Anyone else feel that way?


Still, that's an alarming set of statistics.
