A surprisingly high number of enterprises have had security breaches caused by staff using unauthorized mobile phones at work, according to a self-serving survey commissioned by Good Technology, a provider of mobile messaging systems and security for enterprises.

About 28 per cent of companies admitted to a security breach because of unsupported mobile phone use.
