The dangers of mobile technology for the NHS

Consider the human body for a moment. Every day, it comes into contact with millions of different types of bacteria, germs, viruses. Usually these are stopped by its outer perimeter – the skin – but imagine for a moment that the human body didn't have that external perimeter, and that external forces were able to enter it freely, at a whim. This is the reality of the risk facing the NHS. After all, it can hardly stop patients at the gates, so the solution to the problem of unsecured mobile devices needs to be much more intelligent. Just as perimeter security is a basic requirement in the modern business, the ability to properly manage mobile devices, for work or otherwise, should be fundamental to every IT strategy.
