In the context of Google for Work - Administrators have access to mobile device management for both Android and iOS.  Mobile Device Management (MDM) allows admins to see what devices are connected, require device passwords and remotely wipe data when necessary.

Many companies are passively accepting BYOD (Bring your Own Device) - this could be the fault of a tired old CEO, a tired old CTO or more usually a tired old CFO... :-)

Regardless where blame lies this is a disaster from a corporate security perspective, lost / hacked devices can compromise an entire network and the data thereon.
