Conquering Today’s Bring Your Own Device Challenges
A framework for successful BYOD initiatives
Today’s growing demand for anytime, anywhere network access has expanded to include the use of personal mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, e-readers and more. This Bring Your Own Device phenomenon is changing the way IT organizations and users address network access security.
For IT organizations, BYOD means supporting a variety of devices and their operating systems, and maintaining an expected level of service. To keep costs low, it must be easy to securely onboard new devices and quickly identify and resolve problems.
For users BYOD means using the laptop or smartphone that works best for their needs. They must also understand support considerations and what happens when a device is replaced, lost or stolen.
This paper discusses the benefits and considerations associated with BYOD, and how organizations can effectively deploy a unified access management solution for any wireless, wired or VPN network.
