Solve IT challenges with scalable and secure desktop and application delivery
We offer several ways to take advantage of BYOD (bring your own device). The increasing trend toward employee-owned devices being used within a business. The problem with these devices, they are not always secure, and sometimes can be infected with malware, Trojans, backdoors, and Crypto-ransomware. Imagine a device connecting to your company’s wireless, and minutes later, all of the data required to run your business disappears, or is encrypted and un-usable unless a ransom is paid. This happens everyday in business, and it is especially troublesome for small business’ as they may or may not have a backup solution in place.
Smartphones are the most common example but employees also take their own tablets, laptops and USB drives into the workplace. If an employee’s infected computer connects to your company’s intranet, imagine the damage it can cause.
BYOD is part of the larger trend of IT consumerization, in which consumer software and hardware are being brought into the enterprise. BYOT (bring your own technology) refers to the use of consumer devices and applications in the workplace. More specific variations on the term include bring your own computer (BYOC), bring your own laptop (BYOL), bring your own apps (BYOA) and bring your own PC (BYOPC).
Employee-owned devices are sometimes sanctioned by the company and supported alongside devices that are owned by the business. In other cases, employee-owned devices are part of the parallel system known as shadow IT: hardware or software within an enterprise that is not supported by the organization’s central IT department.
Whether employee-owned hardware and software are supported or not, they pose security risks to the organization if they connect to the corporate network or access corporate data. To minimize the risk and accommodate consumer technologies, many businesses are implementing BYOD policies.
