BYOD is an IT strategy which authorizes employees to connect their personal devices to the corporate network, to access enterprise systems and data.
IT departments have found it difficult to keep up with all the technology changes for the entire company and employees are wanting to use their personal devices to access the information needed for work. Therefore, a new concept was created called Bring Your Own Device which is similar to the other bring-your-own initiatives that have popped up over the years. At Comodo, we encourage companies to embrace the phenomenon of Bring Your Own Device but recognize that can cause problems if not regulated and implemented the right way.
If BYOD is adopted, most employees would love to use personally owned devices. However, some employees may not be willing to invest in mobile devices and may expect the organization to provide the devices. More investment will be needed to manage and provide support for different types of devices - smart phones, tablets, and laptops running on various types of operating systems and versions. A private app store may have to be set up for better control and security over allowed applications. The organization must define and implement comprehensive BYOD policies, processes and infrastructure to address security concerns. Theft or loss of devices or hacking may lead to loss of sensitive business and client data and this could have legal implications. Utilizing the services of a managed services provider (MSP) that offers a robust Mobile device management (MDM) solution to configure, deploy, manage and monitor all devices must be considered to ensure data security before the adoption of BYOD.
The primary benefits of considering BYOD phenomenon can include:
Employees are going to be happier and work more proficiently if they're allowed to use their devices. The Bring Your Own Device concept phase isn't going anywhere, and if you embrace it now, you'll notice cost savings in the future and employees that are happy to come to work. Everyone knows that the happier the employees are, the more they want to work.
You'll also take a step toward modernizing the company and getting it technologically advanced, which can give you an edge over the competition.
As a part of Bring Your Own Device practise, all devices that can access Wi-Fi or the internet can be used by employees, and can include things like tablets, personal laptops, and smartphones. Because these devices are newer and have more advanced technology than IT departments can offer, they are the preferred option for many. While many IT departments flat-out refuse to embrace the idea, it will happen anyway and will cause serious problems in the meantime. While you want full control over the hardware and applications, it's best to work on a different approach to mobile device management instead of refusing to allow Bring Your Own Device.
