The rapid evolution of consumer devices and a growing demand from employees are changing the ways in which organizations deliver mobility solutions to the workforce. There are any number of new mobile devices and emerging technologies to help today's professionals do their jobs in any location, and these technologies bring a range of new challenges, from security, compliance and risk management, to cost and human capital management.

Organizations need to address these challenges by defining policies that regulate the usage of consumer and personal mobility for employees, and they need the appropriate tools to enforce policies, regulate behaviors and manage risks, across multiple device platforms.
