Protecting Corporate Data in a BYOD Environment

App Management
White Paper Executive SummaryThe ‘Consumerization of IT’ wave is hitting enterprises at full force as employees begin to demand more freedom and flexibility in the way they interact with business applications. Frontline users as well as senior executives want the convenience of using just one smartphone or tablet for both work and personal use. They’re tired of carrying two devices and want to eliminate the hassle of physically switching from one to the other. This movement has prompted many businesses to offer employees the option of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work rather than forcing users to rely on corporate-owned devices. Embracing the shift to BYOD makes sense from a business and an IT perspective. In addition to increasing employee productivity and improving employee morale, the BYOD approach reduces the cost of IT capital expenditures as well as on-going support costs. BYOD also gives IT the opportunity to establish itself as being on the same side as end users by granting them the freedom to interact with business applications as they wish to. At the same time, senior management and IT also need to ensure they protect corporate applications and data accessed by personal smartphones and tablets. In the event that a device is lost or stolen, or in the event an employee decides to pirate corporate information, safeguards must be in place so that the company can keep assets safe.To read the full white paper, you can download it here.
