Like their enterprise counterparts 37 percent of which are expected to be mobile by 2015 Federal workers are on the move. A recent Meritalk survey2 of Federal workers found that 54 percent connect remotely at least once a day, and mobility has increased their efficiency, availability, and engagement. Yet, according to same Meritalk study, all the potential of an engaged mobile workforce is lost due to cumbersome security procedures (57 percent), slow connections (65 percent), and limited access (43 percent). Supporting mobile users, their devices, and their organizational expectations is increasingly challenging for government IT departments.
