Getting the BYOD basics right

As more and more organisations open their workplaces up to BYOD, how do IT managers strike a balance between security and freedom?

BYOD may be the next big trend in business technology, but the concerns it raises for IT managers are actually nothing new. In fact, IT professionals already have significant experience in dealing with the security and resource management challenges posed by rogue devices entering their technology environments. As more and more organisations open their workplaces up to BYOD, they’ll need to implement Mobile Device Management (or MDM) strategies that strike a balance between security and freedom for their co-workers and the C-suite. And while the idea of a comprehensive MDM strategy may seem dauntingly complex for most IT managers, they may find themselves already familiar with many of the fundamentals to effectively enabling BYOD – including basic logging, tracking, and analysis regimens – once they look past mobility’s current hype.
