With the massive popularity of tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, consumers want to do more with what they have, including mobile banking and payments. IDC said that, by the end of 2012, the Asia-Pacific region will have 47 percent of the smartphone pie, or 541 million units. This same spread will happen almost everywhere else, so companies need to keep this in mind and have a mobile device management security option to secure their business.

"The worldwide smartphone market is poised for continued double-digit growth in the years ahead," said Ramon Llamas, senior research analyst with IDC's Mobile Phone Technology and Trends team. "Strong end-user demand, broader and deeper selection of smartphones at mobile operators and smartphone vendors, and lower price points will drive shipments higher in the years to come. Underpinning the market is the shifting operating system ecosystem."

Li-May Chew, associate director for IDC Financial Insights Asia-Pacific financial advisory service, said that, with the rise of smartphones and other mobile software, companies will need to watch out for viruses, worms, spyware and more making their way into companies.

IDC suggests installing "stringent mobile security features." Companies should look into their options, including mobile device management, as this should help keep some of the nasty parts of the mobile world out of the company.
