App Management
AlanAs the BYOD (bring your own device) movement gains momentum, many companies are taking advantage of the productivity gains that can be gleaned by outfitting workers with custom mobile enterprise apps. These applications can be used to help employees do their jobs better and at different times of the day outside of the workplace. However, because employees continue to download apps for personal use in record numbers, it’s critical for IT to strike a balance between ensuring the privacy of employees’ personal apps and information while applying appropriate safeguards to protect enterprise apps and corporate data.
