Is Your Office Protected by a BYOD Strategy?
The proliferation of smartphones and tablets has spilled over into offices around the world. Many employees are bringing their own mobile devices to work and using them for business purposes. BYOD (bring your own device) has become commonplace because of the flexibility it provides, allowing people the freedom to work wherever they are, whenever they want, and from whatever device they choose.

While the use of their personal mobile devices may enable employees to become more productive, it creates huge problems for IT departments. BYOD puts your data and network at risk through lost devices, hacking, malware, or viruses. However, despite these risks, most business are not protected by a BYOD strategy. A survey by Software Advice revealed that only 30 percent of organizations have a policy in place that establishes guidelines for proper use of personal mobile devices.

It is critical for your office to have a mobile device strategy because it’s unrealistic to expect your employees not to use their own devices, and allowing unsecured devices to access your corporate network can put your data and environment at risk.
