How to Manage Generation Wherever, Whenever and the Mobile Workforce
Learn why safe BYOD begins with a comprehensive mobile policy and a cloud-based MDM solution.
Mobile technology is reshaping how we work. As SMBs embrace the BYOD (Bring-Your-Own Device) movement, more employees are using personal devices for work. Workers are happier, the ability to work from anywhere at anytime has bolstered productivity, and SMBs are cutting costs.
So what’s the problem?
Most SMBs have no formal mobility policy and are unfamiliar with mobile device management (MDM) technology. If acceptable/unacceptable usage isn’t clearly defined, and employee-owned devices aren’t properly deployed, configured, monitored and managed, costly security breaches will happen.
While more small-to-midsize businesses seem to be adapting flexible work practices and drafting BYOD or “bring your own device” policies for employees, most of these policies either fail to address key security concerns or they’re not strictly enforced.
You can’t simply write a BYOD policy and ignore it. Employees will take liberties and security vulnerabilities will increase. New devices emerge constantly and BYOD policies must not only be enforced but must also continuously evolve. BYOD is an ongoing challenge, not something that becomes an afterthought once it’s implemented.
