Depending on your organization, BYOD means a lot of different things. BYOD can be a welcome change (employee retention, talent acquisition, employee satisfaction, productivity enhancement, lower IT costs, and potentially customer satisfaction) or a challenge (security, access/restriction of data, lost devices, etc).
Regardless, the first step is knowing the who’s, what’s and where’s of your network. The Softchoice Mobility TechCheck gives you visibility into how many devices and what kind of devices are already on your network.
With this data, companies can start to develop a plan around BYOD, such as:
- Should companies provide freedom of choice or restrict choice to specific devices/operating systems
- Should companies provide a stipend for the device or service
- What does an acceptable use document look like in a BYOD world
- What data/applications should a company allow access to …where …when …to whom
I’m holding a special mobile security webinar in December to answer your questions – read on for full details on this and our assessment.
