However, increased risk of security breaches is a distinct possibility, because now sensitive data can be easily transferred from one wearable to the other. Organizations should be prepared with security policies to ensure safety of sensitive corporate and customer data. To mitigate this risk, wearable device security solutions provide a robust technique to modern enterprises to improve their workflow, resource management, and enhance communications profitably,” stated Tariq Ahmed Shaik, Research Manager at Infoholic Research.
