AppSense on the Windows Desktop and the BYOD Trend

In the last few months it seems that the whole conversation around Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) has shifted exclusively to smartphones. When the subject of BYOD was first broached, the idea was that organizations could just pay a regular stipend to their users, who would then use it to select the laptop of their choice and bring it to work where (magic happens here) they could access their corporate apps and data. Cynics quickly pointed out that these programs were championed by employees who resented having a Windows PC foisted on them, and these were really Bring Your Own Mac programs by any other name.

The IT department shuddered in fear at the BYOD proposition, since it came with the expectation that IT would have to deliver a productive and reliable work environment on a diverse range of hardware and operation systems, especially on systems that they do not own or maintain. Add this to the legal questions over whether protected data could be stored on devices not owned by the corporation, and the fact that the majority of employees could simply pocket the stipend and drag their ancient under powered laptop to work and expect IT to make it perform, and you get the reason that most BYOD programs for computers turned into “well, if you want to bring your own laptop you can, but we can’t support you much and we’re not going to pay you to do it.” This suited the Mac-loving executive just fine, since he can afford to buy his own Mac anyway, and so BYOD programs became a niche use case in many enterprises for users who are willing to pay for those devices out of their own pockets.
