#2. Auditing:

Second step that IT managers need to watch out for is targeted auditing. Successful auditing means inspecting devices and systems that are in need of security.  CIOs also have to determine that the devices are in hands of the right users; that they contain an acceptable array of applications, and they are being used for acceptable activities. Better auditing can always ensure better data security. With strong regulations, policies and acceptable guidelines, CIOs can easily minimize the over-burden of security anxieties.

But still enterprises should think on deploying strong policies against users installing applications for themselves. Nowadays these common, ever popular app stores possess opportunities for other malware applications to gain access to enterprise statistics and figures. To keep such devices secure, enterprises and IT managers should remotely detect and remove these risky applications, so that they obey enterprise rules and regulations.
