We’ve heard a lot about the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend over the last couple of years. Recently, Michael Osterman, Principal at Osterman Research, Inc., conducted a survey and wrote the white paper The Need for IT to Get in Front of the BYOD Problem. Osterman notes that the trend brings serious concerns to an organization and BYOD is pervasive. He explains that while there are benefits (reduced costs, improved morale, job satisfaction), there is a substantial downside risk from unmanaged BYOD.
It is critically important to know the extent of personally owned devices connecting to the corporate network. The thought of trying to get a handle on all this may seem overwhelming as many users have multiple devices that are used for various business purposes. Read this whitepaper to learn more about what other organizations are experiencing with the BYOD trend and how you can identify the devices in use by your users.
