Mobile devices have faced tremendous changes in the past few years. Mobile devices are now tending to blend in to the category of PCs. While providing a bundle of services such as email, calendar, managing appointment and contacts, these mobile devices can also connect to a network via wifi. The risk caused by this is tremendous as there is no proper security framework at place. Many organizations being aware of this fact implement few add-on such as user authentication, virus protection, firewall, intrusion detection, etc. but these add on provide solution in a very different way. Many solution provided take action after the problem has occurred. This paper suggests a framework which can be incorporated in to the security mechanisms so as to avoid the above mentioned problems.
