Some of the largest and medium-sized U.S. airports report close to 637,000 laptops lost each year. Wow, this figure has got to make you think.

Clearly, protecting data on laptops, PDAs and smart phones is of tantamount importance to businesses.
Hyperconnectivity comes with its security risks.
The answer lies in corporate policies, device data encryption and network-based data-based storage, and in combinations of these.
