Re: Managing BYOD
I agree with the growth of BYOD, but it will be more graceful if companies can add a subsidy for purchase of device, not only on the area of employee and employer, we have big vendors taking deep interest in same with Cisco ready to acquire Collaborate.com it shows its urge to the BYOD trend.

Managing BYOD
BYOD will continue growing as mobile devices continue to play a greater role in our lives.  That's why organizations need to address such BYOD challenges as security and device management.

Does BYOD come with headaches?  Of course it does.  However, security issues and IT management headaches (how do I support all those devices?) can be addressed by using new HTML5 technologies that enable users to connect to applications and systems without requiring IT staff to install anything on user devices. For example, Ericom AccessNow is an HTML5 RDP client that enables remote users to securely connect from iPads, iPhones and Android devices to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in a browser. This enhances security by keeping applications and data separate from personal devices.

Since AccessNow doesn't require any software installation on the end user device – just an HTML5 browser, network connection, URL address and login details - IT staff end up with less support hassles. An employee that brings in their own device merely opens their HTML5-compatible browser and connects to the URL given them by the IT admin.

Please note that I work for Ericom

Do you have a policy on BYOD? Take our flash poll!
We want to know what you think is the best policy for managing a bring-your-own-device program. So far almost 40 percent of respondents choose "allow a restricted set of devices." Do you agree? Take the poll and tell us why in the comments.

Re: BYOD
There is so much choice about mobile devices today -- too much IMO -- that I would welcome the guidance from my IT department about the best smartphone to use. Especially if the guidance came with a generous subsidy.

BYOD
I think it makes sense for IT departments to offer a selection of preapproved devices to choose from, but as a consumer/employee, I'd love the opportunity to choose the device myself.
