Yeah, you are absolutely right, PaulS. Its hard to digest the fact that companies are not able to wip a users device. I dont know how did that statistic miss my eye.
Companies should be aware of all the pros and cons before rolling out any new policy to its employees. And BYOD is definately one such feature which demands attention because its own (compnaies') precious data ia at huge risk. Just imagine if such data falls into wrong hands. It could possibly be the reason for the downfall of the company.
Companies may be at risk as well. If they get served a warrant that demands all BYOD be turned over, there may be privacy issues where the government agencies cannot use information on a BYOD.Then the company could get slapped with obstruction of justice.
That is why I said everyone needs to be careful until the courts sort it out.
Im am surprised about the part of the info-graphic that indicates 46% of IT pros say thier company doesn't have the abilirt to wip a users device. If your going to use BYOD shouldn't that be a requirement?
@Michael... Very interesting. I am not a fan of BYOD for just about all the reasons that have been gone over in the article and all the comments. After reading your article from the link you provided even more so. I think you are right about people not wanting to use their personal phones if they new about that doctrine.
I am hearing that some companies are mandating BYOD. I'm not sure how they can do that. Number 1... If a company uses BYOD they should ensure all employees that need a device sign off on a policy indicationg they agree to everything. By everything i mean all the details need to be spelled out like.. We can wipe your phone if we need to.
If you have such a policy you cant require everyone to use it. If a company requires you to have a mobil device they should supply it unless you agree to "everything" that goes with using your own device.
