Techopedia Explains Corridor Warrior

Corridor warriors have different technology needs than professionals who spend the majority of their time in one office or at one desk. Corridor warriors often need to access data and make changes to work on the fly, so they are ideal customers for companies selling mobile devices and cloud-based apps that allow users to access their files from anywhere. Unlike regular mobile device users, corridor warriors generally require devices with a greater degree of data security as well as the ability to dictate which apps can be installed.
