Is your organization's Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy secure?
Congratulations! Your organization just implemented a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, but is it secure? What safeguards are in place to keep company data protected on personal devices? What happens when employees lose the device or leave on bad terms?
While BYOD promises to be a great convenience for employees and employers alike, potentially boosting productivity, saving money and increasing employee responsiveness during off-hours, there are major risks and hurdles organizations need to address before opening the BYOD floodgates. Unregulated network access, a lack of data management, and disgruntled employees are just some risks companies face in terms of safeguarding data as employees use their personal mobile devices for work. Pioneering Network has the knowledge and experience you need to help navigate the choppy waters BYOD has introduced to the corporate network security model. If you have already implemented BYOD or are just starting the think about it, we can assist with the “Big Picture.” We'll help ensure any policy takes into account the increased risks to network and data security, doesn’t overburden employees and crush their enthusiasm and doesn’t end up costing you more in the long run.
