Fiering said until organisations develop suitable virtualisation techniques to isolate corporate needs from the consumer environment, companies should require users to purchase from an approved list of consumer-friendly corporate configurations, which the IT organisation has pre-configured.
The warning follows the release of regional spending forecasts issued by Gartner last month showing a third of all IT spending is now sourced outside of Europe, Nth America and Japan, with the Asia Pacific emerging as a dominant economic force in the next decade.
In fact the IT industry reached a milestone in 2007 becoming a $3 trillion dollar market.
The research firm's global head of research, Peter Sondergaard, said Asia is experiencing rapid growth while Europe and Nth America are in decline.
Sondergaard said while IT spending overall will grow at a rate of four percent in 2008, this rate will top nine percent in Asia for the next three years.
Gartner research shows that IT budgets will increase to five percent in 2008 compared to three percent in 2007.
The APAC region remains unaffected by concerns of an economic downturn in the United States.
