The flexible workplace: Unlocking value in the “Bring Your Own Device” era
One way or another, BYOD will still step into the enterprise. So you will need to find the right balance between giving employees the flexibility to use their own device for work and the potential security risks and costs of embracing BYOD.
As your employees bring their own smartphones and tablets to the workplace, you need to create a flexible mobile environment that supports employee choice, enables secure access to enterprise data and applications, and allows personally owned devices to co-exist in the infrastructure with corporate-issued and special-purpose wireless devices.
