IT teams shudder when they think of allowing employees to “Bring Your Own Devices” to work, yet the reality is they are here. Some are used for personal, some for work and some for both. With mobile devices poised to transform how most organizations operate, decision makers need to have a BYOD strategy that meets their communication technology needs, security and reliability concerns and investment goals. How do IT teams allow the organization to leverage this capability, yet safeguard corporate resources, especially when these devices are connected from anywhere over any network? And how do you set the policies on device usage?
