iPass revealed some interesting facts in their recent report on mobile employees in the enterprise. The survey was done by interviewing 2300 persons at over 1,100 enterprises worldwide. iPass defined the mobile worker as any person using any mobile device (including laptop, smartphone, cellphone, or tablet) who accesses networks for work purposes.

The average age of a mobile employee is 41, five years younger than in 2010. This plus the loosening of corporate liability policies leaved room to Apple and Android into the enterprise. 95 percent of mobile workers now have smartphones, up from 85 percent in 2010. When looking at usage habits, 91 percent use their smartphones for work, compared to 69 percent in 2010.
