The Need for IT to Get in Front of the BYOD Problem

Interesting Oct’12 survey paper on the #BYOD oppty/challenge, citing #MDM as a solution but missing the boat on virtual desktop value (#DaaS or #VDI) for BYOD…though it does cite a feature of DaaS (role-based access) w/survey results/graphics. Email @ITconnecter if you would like me to send a copy or feel free to visit the site to download your own.

From – …”More than 82 percent of organizations are using personally-owned smartphones or tablets to access corporate systems. The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend seems innocuous enough to end users, but it creates serious security, compliance and support issues for IT departments.

In this Osterman Research paper, we discuss why the BYOD trend is growing so quickly and why support and content management becomes challenging. You’ll also learn the importance of having a BYOD strategy and policies in order to mitigate risks and maximize benefits.”
