BYOD: Freedom or Fright? Top 100 Influencers

by | Apr 30, 2014 | Influencer Lists,

Are you looking for freedom and flexibility? Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a way that firms can empower employees to choose their own tools to get their work done. IT departments now often struggle to implement reactive policies due to the quickly changing nature of technology. Even if BYOD means cost reduction, employee satisfaction and productivity gains for most of the companies, there is still a barrier which involves security (think of open source operating systems such as Android). Accessing corporate data through personal devices poses a serious threat for any organisation.
