Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Overview on BYOD
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a strategy that allows enterprise employees and other users to utilize personal devices for accessing corporate data and performing business operations.
Typically, BYOD practices include smartphones and tablets but can be easily extended to PCs and laptops.
Enterprises are adopting BYOD programs to increase productivity by allowing employees the flexibility to complete business tasks from their own personal devices. This strategy enables employees to conveniently access any approved enterprise application on their own mobile devices. With SureMDM, IT admins can authenticate access to end-users for approved apps.
42Gears offers an easy way for companies to secure corporate data in BYOD devices while providing IT teams with the necessary tools to ensure privacy controls. Once a device is enrolled for a BYOD program, a work container is created on the device to allow seamless workflow without interfering with the employee’s personal content.
The Future of BYOD - Embracing Modern Way of Working
BYOD, a policy that was once thought of as a futuristic concept of working, has now become a common trend. The COVID-19 pandemic has been the main driver for the large-scale implementation of the BYOD policy. Even companies that were reluctant to BYOD have made peace with it, as a fair share of remote work would not even be possible without such a policy. By addressing all the security concerns, standardizing security protocols, and strengthening their data defenses, organizations are well-poised to embrace BYOD policies. Overall, BYOD will continue to grow among employers and employees in the future owing to its potential benefits and greater flexibility.
SureMDM can also remotely wipe corporate data as per company-specific privacy policies without touching the personal content on the employee’s mobile. Send notifications to users and IT admin when a device is out of company compliance.
