There’s no question that it’s valuable for an employee to use their personal tablet or smartphone at work. It eliminates the overhead expense of a company purchasing a cell phone, paying for an additional line of service or the capital expense of investing in separate tablets for the employee. But Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) needs to be closely managed in order to be secure. Many businesses struggle with how to ensure that their network and data can remain secure while employees bring their own machines into the office to plug into their network.
BYOD is a must in today’s world of technology. Employees need e-mail on their personal devices and flexibility in where they work. By implementing BYOD and managing it properly from the start, you can ensure that you protect your business data and that employee’s needs. With a little diligent planning, policy implementation, and training your company can significantly reduce the risk of data breaches and information leaks.
