IT Administrators - be ready for large numbers of BYODs after holidays

in Software (F)

[] Cluj-Napoca, Romania - Many people will get new gadgets this holiday season, if it's an iPad 4, a Galaxy tablet or an Android smartphone, whatever people get, most of them will want to use it also for work as soon as the holidays are over. Question is: how prepared is your business IT for this scenario? To handle the influx of mobile devices means to be ready and able to embrace the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend. Having the right infrastructure in place to keep employees happy (by not denying them the use of the devices) and keeping control over what is happening to company data on these devices need to be the goal.

"BYOD is nothing new that just happened in the last year or two. Since the availability of small devices that can carry large amounts of data such as USB Sticks in any shape and form, IT Administrators have to face employees who want to use them also on the workplace which usually leads to more productivity with the downside of risks such as data leaks, data theft and data losses. Therefore solutions that cover a wide area of supported devices that allow control over not only smartphones and tablets but also portable storage devices are necessary," said Roman Foeckl, CoSoSys CEO.
