Is your “Bring Your Own Device” policy doing more harm than good?
1 month, 2 weeks
BYOD plans offer employees greater flexibility and the freedom to take their work far beyond their office cubicles, as well as reduced operating costs for business owners. But without a Mobile Device Management tool, BYOD policies could be putting your business at risk.
An “open door” BYOD policy that lacks proper management can bring unforeseen problems to your business, including:
- Complicated employee turnover: When an employee moves on to another job, company data must be dealt with accordingly; which can cross some serious boundaries if they're using their own personal computer. This can be avoided by proper Device Management.
- Lack of data security: A mismanaged BYOD policy is a security disaster waiting to happen: Proper management is essential to protect company data, as well as sensitive client and customer information.
- Employee trust issues: Although this isn't necessarily a security risk to the business, a poorly run BYOD system can make employees uncomfortable: Not everyone wants to browse their personal social media sites with a computer their employer can access.
Make sure your technology plan is keeping everyone working with ACS.
