Bring Your Own Device
Gradually, enterprises across the globe are experiencing the growing popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies representing a major shift from corporate-owned, personally enabled (COPE) devices. Your IT team is being forced to embrace BYOD services despite existing corporate policy or preference. Granting BYOD devices access to corporate data and back-end systems raises mobile security risks and concerns as corporations need to protect valuable data from theft or loss to third parties. IT must therefore make sure that enterprise data is secure and only accessible to authorized employees, simultaneously respecting the freedom and privacy of your employees and their personal devices.
IT also needs to support a growing variety of device types running different operating systems.
Boosting Productivity & Optimizing Costs
But what if you could maximize the productivity of your mobile users while cutting costs, and maintaining security? BYOD is not only about the challenges related to employees using their own devices to be more productive, but also about addressing security and compliance needs that arise with this new business reality. While BYOD poses challenges, it also brings plenty of benefits to IT, including a reduction in expenditure for devices and, more importantly, increased employee productivity, flexibility, and satisfaction. At the same time, your users also expect that IT deliver mobile business apps that are as user-friendly and easy to use as the consumer apps they download from public app stores.
Securing the Workspace
Enterprise mobility solutions deployed using a secure workspace are ideal for the implementation of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies. They enable employee-owned devices to access corporate office data in a secure and centrally controlled manner, without imposing limitations on personal applications and data and device configurations, secure access to office apps and separates enterprise and personal data on the device that uses a secure container container approach that has security, encryption and data loss prevention features built in to the platform. It allows IT to rapidly and easily on-board personally owned devices deploying the required secure apps and data while, at the same time, being able to off-board the devices removing all enterprise apps and data without impacting employee personal apps and data.
This approach is less intrusive and more palatable to employees especially for contractors, vendors and partners using their own devices as there is no need to enroll or manage the device and no need to carry multiple devices. There is also no risk of personal data like photos getting erased by IT. And the workspace offers a flexible approach that is compatible with different corporate ownership models and ensures compliance with industry regulations. It meets the diverse needs of enterprises in terms of deployment strategies, business or security requirements and delivers the user-friendly and intuitive experience that your administrator and end users will embrace.
Striking the perfect balance
Overall, your IT department needs to respond to the BYOD challenge with solutions that are able to strike a perfect balance between IT’s needs to ensure data security and compliance, and your end user’s needs for an intuitive experience, privacy, productivity, and freedom of choice.
