The BYOD trend has become a hot topic given that it’s now a compliance and security nightmare for IT managers worldwide. It may offer increased productivity and flexibility for employees, but once you decentralize corporate networks and documents, security will always be a major concern. Now enterprises need to figure out ways this can be achieved, what software is available, and pick a suitable vendor based on features that would meet the enterprise’s long-term requirements and connected business strategy needs. These requirements are two-fold; security concerns for the enterprise, and privacy and user experience concerns for users. This talk focuses on how enterprises can adopt a BYOD program without compromising security and without disturbing the privacy and user-experience of the user.
