BYOD is about convenience and productivity. While the technology has been around for a few years to securely deliver business email and calendaring to personal devices, few organizations have a BYOD policy in place.
This is despite the fact that 71% of employees say they access corporate assets with personal devices, according to InternetNews.com.
Gone are the days where we cart around separate devices for personal and work purposes. This convenience keeps us connected—whether good or bad—and encourages staff to check in day and night.
In these times of “always on,” BYOD brings an additional layer of convenience that’s a “must have” for all organizations, but which must be secure and protected.
