“When a business-connected mobile device is lost, there is more than an 80 percent chance an attempt will be made to breach corporate data
and/or networks.”

In the modern work/life world, more and more employees are utilizing a variety of mobile technology to conduct business. Using a combination of laptops, tablets and smartphones, business can now be conducted from virtually anywhere, helping to create a better work/life balance.
However, one question remains … is one type of hardware better than another? The benefits of tablets such as the iPad® are great, with many functions performed more efficiently than on a laptop. Combined with the lower cost, it’s easy to see why many businesses are questioning if they should replace their employees’ laptops with tablets.
While each new tablet release provides more functionality and features than its predecessors and thus, users find themselves relying on their PCs less and less, there are many instances where a tablet just cannot replace the functionality of a PC. There are other instances where the use of a mobile device is able to extend the usability of a PC, enabling employees to get out of the office and find a better work/life balance, while staying connected.
