Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) gives employees new ways to work, encouraging flexibility that helps to keep people productive. Unfortunately, managing and monitoring a BYOD model can be complex.
When users can use any device and any application to work, it becomes impossible to implement consistent security. While BYOD opens up new possibilities, it also opens new attack vectors to be exploited. In addition, unexpected devices can add significant strain to network resources.
Without total control over hardware, businesses need to focus their attention on software. Device operating systems and custom applications can be used to maintain governance over every device, no matter where it comes from.
