AppSense Talks: The BYOD Myth

AppSense Talks: The BYOD Myth

Are users really doing it for themselves? Can we really forget device management? Will devices be truly disposable, or irrelevant? In my previous blog post “Windows Desktop and the BYOD Trend” I observed that BYOD has mostly come to mean “BYO Smartphone”, but what about Macs, or Surface, or iPads? Do users really need IT to prepare and configure these devices for them? As long as IT can ensure the business is protected from user activities then why do they need to manage these devices, which reportedly require so little support?

The first part of the answer is “it depends on your industry”. Financial institutions, healthcare and government agencies have much stricter requirements on privacy and user security that require IT to keep tight control on devices. They just can’t afford to relinquish control of the endpoints, but what about industries that aren’t as regulated?
