BYOD security problem: Less than 10% of tablet owners use auto-lock

Summary: More of us are bringing our smartphones and tablets to work, but very few enable even the most basic security measures. This can lead to major problems if a device is lost or stolen so please at least enable auto lock with a password.

I work for a 67 person engineering consulting firm and every smartphone in the office is brought in by the employee. No one has an Android tablet, but there are about ten people with iPads that connect to our Exchange server. I keep my devices close at hand, but still enable the screen lock function on my phones. I don?t have this turned on for my iPad now and actually wasn?t too shocked to read an ESET/Harris Interactive study that shows less than 10% of people using their own tablets for work auto lock them.
