Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

It's not so long ago that the IT assets used at work were relatively powerful and expensive, and those used at home were cheap and cheerful. With the advent of smart phones, tablets, laptops and mobile broadband, that trend is reversing. Workers are finding that they often carry technology in their pockets and handbags that is more powerful, flexible, useful and user-friendly than the computers on their desks. And in times of increasing mobility, these devices support the modern paradigm that work is an activity, not a place.

The days of IT departments specifying, owning and "locking down" the assets that their users have access to are slipping away. There is growing pressure from information-oriented workers to do their work on their own devices from wherever they are. Dubbed Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), this trend by employees, contractors, visitors and customers to work from several mobile devices, often simultaneously, has multiplied the challenges of connectivity, security, compliance, compatibility and productivity that IT managers were already grappling with.
