"The trend toward 'bring your own device' policies in organizations around the country is on an upswing and there are benefits for both employees and employers" - CUES Be Careful with BYOD
According to the CUES article, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) practices can greatly increase efficiency in the case of a disaster or emergency. Employees will be able to work from familiar devices which can increase not only efficiency but also productivity. However, the cons must be taken into consideration. The most important difficulty faced in BYOD is always security. BYOD can mean high productivity but it also means that most likely many of your employees are carrying around very sensitive member information on their unsecured mobile devices. As times are increasingly moving towards mobility, it is no longer enough to secure your network; you must look to secure any information that leaves your network as well.
As this Credit Union Times article discusses, an effective way to manage your corporate information on an employee's personal device is through Mobile Device Management (MDM). MDM creates a secure and encrypted environment on mobile devices where employees can access corporate information and IT administrators can maintain complete control over that information. Without interrupting a user's personal device, corporate data and email can be managed remotely to ensure security and privacy of member information.
With low monthly service fees, Btech's MDM solution is very affordable, and is a fully integrated cloud platform with rapid deployment, visibility and control that spans across mobile device, applications and documents. In just a few clicks, IT administrators can start enrolling devices and immediately manage the entire mobile device lifecycle - from enrollment to enterprise integration, configuration and management, monitoring and security, support, and analytics and reporting.
