Adopting secure and user-friendly solutions to meet the demands of hybrid workplaces
The drive towards modern anywhere workforce is compelling organizations to adopt secure and user friendly solutions. While moving from the traditional workplace to a modern workplace, customers are looking for an integrated security solution that follows devices, apps, and data without the obligation of the location of the user and devices. Capabilities like Zero IT touch, remote configuration and remote management of devices is enabling IT admins to enhance and improve user experience and productivity.
BYOD is not only helping corporations with huge savings in terms of device cost, cost of maintenance, damage, replacement etc. but also helping to enhance employee satisfaction, efficiency and productivity.
Moreover, the increasing work from home culture brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic makes it necessary for employees to access work related applications and data from their personal devices.
Having said that, does it mean that just bringing in BYOD caters to all the enterprise requirements?
Over the past few years, the evolution and rapid adoption of mobile devices and organizations preferring BYOD/CYOD/BYOE has resulted in challenges in balancing employee freedom, app functionality and data security. This has in turn, motivated service integrators and OEMs to strategize security parameters and compliance adherence across enterprises. Defining a security policy for BYOD would essentially include defining the acceptable use of devices (both applications & assets), creating minimum security controls, wiping off procedures for lost/stolen devices.
