BYOD on corporate terms

The bring-your-own-device trend isn't going anywhere and organisations better figure out quickly how they are going to support it without sacrificing their peace of mind.

The topic of bring-/buy-your-own-device (BYOD) is increasingly being discussed within business circles and a recent poll conducted by Avenade shows that more than 80 per cent of the 605 C-level executives surveyed  are using personal technology for business purposes. Meanwhile, a survey by Absolute Software, a company specialising in the tracking, management, and recovery of stolen computers, maintains that 64 per cent of IT managers think it is too risky to integrate personal devices into the business network. The contention highlighted by these figures makes for an interesting conversation about who makes and who enforces the organisation’s IT rules and policies, but the real question is how are they going to support (or fight) this growing trend.
