Re: Good Idea
Articles like this just make me laugh. 

I've been consulting for 20 years and I still have yet to see a single organization allow BYOD devices on the corporate network.  If I ever see that, I will point it out as a huge security hole.  BYOD isn't common because the company can't transfer liability to the owner of that device.  If some end user puts corporate data on their personal laptop, which is then stolen, it's the company not the user that is liable.  Therefore, no BYOD. 

This author also said something about contractors putting BYOD devices on the corporate network.  This is also stupid and is not something that ever happens, and for the same reasons I described above.  In my experience, contractors are barely allowed to use the guest WiFi. 

The security perimeter is expanding, not disolving.  BYOD is not a threat if you don't allow them on the network.  Security comes before popularity. 

If you can't control it, don't allow it.

No more one size fits all
Organizations need to be realistic that they will have different endpoints with different levels of security. That's fine provided that they're conscious of it - and that they restrict what their less secure endpoints can do (ie don't allow insecure endpoints to talk to your most sensitive systems!)

Good Idea
No bring your own devices.  At work you use a CORPORATE ASSET or not at all.  THAT is a good rule.  Eliminates alot of troubles.  Corp has rules for usage of assets, but bringing your own in voids all of that in a flash. SO DON'T BE STUPID about it.  Work is work and that is that.  No outside anything except IF you have a defended guest network maybe and even then test the hell out of it.  Segment that off your corp in-office network.  Tools exist for that.  But NOTHING OUTSIDE ever comes in the door.  Simple and effective.
