First came desktops, later joined by laptops. Now there are netbooks, tablets, PDAs and smartphones. Most mobile devices are loaded with powerful computing power, allowing them to run multiple applications and connect to the Internet with ease. Let's not forget mobile storage, including SD cards, flash drives and external hard drives. Mobile storage is proliferating and the amount of data it can hold is increasing. Employees want to access corporate networks with personal devices. Senior management demands anytime, everywhere instant connectivity.
