Bring Your Own Device is a popular topic as of late, but is this mobile policy just a trend, or will it be the way of the future? Based on the opinion of some industry experts, this particular IT model, or some form of it, is here to stay. BYOD enables employees to use their personally owned devices for work. With the correct planning and a robust Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, there are definitely benefits for businesses that officially adopt some type of BYOD policy.
At the same time, any BYOD model will come with some potential risks and every business owner, president, corporate CIO or CEO must be prepared to engage these risks through the development and implementation of IT policies and mobile management solutions.
