Although the reported growth rates vary, there is little doubt that mobile devices are swiftly overtaking PCs as preferred computing tools around the globe. It is expected that smartphones and tablets will lead to doubling the number of devices connected to the Internet during the next five years. A number of technologies have converged to drive forward the mobile computing phenomenon, including cloud computing, virtualization, unified communications, and the development of increasingly sophisticated cyberdefense tools. As of December 2012, nearly half of all Americans own a smartphone, and these users are pressing their employers to adopt Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies for personal and professional convenience. Given these conditions, what must Federal Government technologists and policymakers do to address operational and legal considerations for broader mobile technology adoption?
