Bring your own device (BYOD) is the practice that allow employees using personal devices for work-related purposes. Personal devices include smartphones, personal computers, tablets, or USB drives. BYOD has become a trend in the corporate environment. In 2017, 59% of organizations allowed employees to use their own devices for work purposes and this trend has kept growing in the following years.Pros of BYOD. For companies with high numbers of non-desk workers, the discussion about BYOD is particularly important. Allowing a remote workforce to use their personal mobile devices might enable companies to improve communication between desk-bound employees and their non-desk counterparts. The numbers say no. In fact, the story they tell points to the astounding success of private smartphones in the corporate environment.Productivity. According to a Forbes study, 49% of employees say that they are more productive when using their own device. In general, workers tend to avoid communication on a device they don’t feel comfortable using. To ensure that relevant information gets to your employees on the right channels, it is advisable to let them work with a device they feel familiar with.Familiarity. Implementing BYOD policies means less time for training: employees are already familiar with their own devices and they know how to get the best out of them. Because of that, you will see an increase in the efficiency and a reduction in the time needed to complete tasks, which will affect positively productivity.Flexibility. By allowing employees to use their own devices, they are able to work anywhere without requiring other tools to access work related files. A bring your own device policy also gives the employer greater flexibility which is being as a key factor to job satisfaction and positive motivation. Flexibility is one of the main incentives for employee happiness and it can also increases loyalty, morale, and employee engagement.Financial savings. BYOD means that companies save money, since they do not have to buy devices for each of their employees. BYOD can reduce expenses in three areas: hardware, telecommunications, and support and training. It also lowers expenses for repairs and updating. According to a study issued by Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group, companies save an estimated $3,150 per employee per year with BYOD. This amount is based on device costs, data plans, and $1,518 per employee per year in associated time savings.Cons of BYOD Policies. Security. An organization can require that employee devices registered with the company to be monitored constantly. It can also require back-up software, antivirus software, or specific password protection policies be implemented. It is more difficult to manage the security on personal devices. Establishing stipulations onto an employee-owned device, even if it is only during working hours, feels like an invasion of privacy. Businesses using a BYOD program have to contend with the fact that they will be giving up control over the appropriate use of employee devices.Software difficulties. A company may use specific software to carry out certain projects. In some cases, employees bringing their own devices may experience problems in the installation or usage processes required for this software. Their devices may not even be suitable with the software.Data retrieval. When an employee leaves the company, it may be necessary to remove the company’s private information from his (her) device, in order to prevent any potential misuse of information. This could be quite challenging because it can be seeing as an invasion of the employee’s privacy and there is an obligation to protect worker personal data.Lack of consistency. You might find some workers who are still using laptop or mobiles from 2008 while other are you using innovative technology. Although companies save money when a BYOD policy is implemented, there are added end-user support costs to pay. On a team of 10 workers, you might find 8 different devices supported by 6 different operating systems. Being able to help them when they experience certain difficulties might be troublesome.The bottom line. There are several pros and cons you should take into consideration before implementing a BYOD program. This policy that can save money and increase productivity but, it encourages device familiarity. It can also bring certain risks to the organization that you should be aware of. Before implementing a BYOD program, employee and employer might fully understand the program’s policies and perils in order to become familiar with these key pros and cons.

Gilmore, CISSP, CISM, EnCE July 6, 2018 Security Planning, Security Policy and Procedure Development, Security Program Development What is BYOD? BYOD is an acronym for “Bring Your Own Device.” It refers to the practice of employees using a personal device for work. With BYOD, a single individual has the capacity to affect himself, those close to him, the company, and potentially millions of other people. One unsecured device can harm millions of individuals and organizations who may become unsuspecting and unwilling participants. These “collateral damage” participants often have no say in how these risks are managed. Read more about the BYOD Wild West. Benefits of BYOD. Employees might become more productive since they stay connected to the company. Employees no longer needs to be in the company’s office in order to work. The company lowers its expenses by reducing hardware purchases. The “freedom” of BYOD can increase employee morale. Disadvantages of BYOD. Employees may not have effective antivirus software, firewalls, or other specialized security software installed on their devices. Devices used by employees are vulnerable to theft, loss, or damage. Employees often work at outside Wi-Fi locations that are not secure and are vulnerable to attack by others. Employees may not allow the company access to their personal device for security reasons since wiping an employee’s personal device may erase all information on the device, both business and personal. Some employees may be using certain software systems that are not compatible. The employee uses his or her device for personal reasons while on company time, decreasing productivity. Employees can take pictures or videos of information that may be proprietary to the company, whether or not the device is connected to the company network. Protus3 can help you.

                            [body] => The Advantages and Disadvantages of BYOD Optimus Learning Services > The L&D Blog > Practical L&D > The Advantages and Disadvantages of BYOD   A few weeks ago, we looked at the pros and cons of choosing an eLearning solution when choosing training. One of the considerations we mentioned was whether or not you were going to provide the equipment or implement a BYOD system. We feel that this was an issue that needed to be explored deeper – with the BYOD debate raging hotter than ever in the Learning and Development Industry. First of all, it is important to establish what exactly BYOD means. It stands for Bring Your Own Device and what it means is a business policy where employees bring in personally owned mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets and allow them to access privileged business data such as databases and email on their own device. It also allows them to remotely access this information from locations outside the office. In terms of learning, this could mean employees accessing eLearning modules either at work or at other locations such as their own home. The important thing when it comes to BYOD is that the device is their own, not the companies. Advantages. Lower Costs – The most obvious benefit to a company using BYOD is that it means they don’t have to purchase a significant amount of costly devices in order for employees to be able to do eLearning. Bearing in mind the average tablet will cost upwards from £150, an eLearning strategy involving 300 employees could set you back over £4500 before any training has even been purchased. So if you don’t have to buy any devices, that represents significant savings. Breakages and wastage are also likely to be reduced by the fact people tend to take better care of their own equipment than company-owned devices and any repair costs are the employee’s burden anyway. Technology Familiarity – Most people tend to be familiar with their own devices. Apple fans are good with Apple technology and Windows fans are better with devices with Windows operating systems. Getting used to another one can be irritating for any employee. BYOD takes this issue away, as they are working on their own personalised device which is already suited to their own needs and that they are already perfectly competent on. Flexibility – Workers won’t need to travel with several devices satisfying their home and work needs, as the one device will fulfil both. Work that could normally only be done in the office will be able to be done wherever, as employees have access to all of the data they need anywhere they want and finally – employees aren’t hindered by the usual strict rules that they have to adhere to when using company property. BYOD allows greater freedoms to your employees. Disadvantages. Costs for the employee – As mentioned before, the costs of BYOD are down to the employee. Not everybody has such a device or even want one. Therefore being told by your company you then need to get one for work is likely to leave them feeling fairly hard done by. Factor in the increased usage and transportation of the device likely leading to quicker depreciation of the device and possible accidents – repairs could also prove to be costly for the employee. They may not be happy shouldering this cost. Device Disparities – When a company buys devices for their employees they have the freedom to buy the perfect device for their need. Therefore it will have the correct technological features for the purpose they are serving. However, with BYOD, your employees are likely to have a whole plethora of devices, however, all with different capabilities and operating systems that run different programmes at different levels of quality. It is hard to get programmes that are of high quality but are also able to cover all platforms and realistic quality of devices, so this could cause issues. You also have to adapt your system to be able to deal with a BYOD policy. Security – Companies all spend a very large amount of money on their security systems as they know that they can’t afford for their data to be leaked or viruses to be caught. Employees, however, are unlikely to have this level of security. Whilst the everyday security software for home use can cover all day to day activities, you might not trust them to be up to the job of protecting your valuable customer data. In addition, how do companies with BYOD stop employees who are leaving the company from walking away with a significant amount of your data, available at a touch of the button on their device? This can also be flipped for the employees – they may feel their own privacy is at risk if they do personal web surfing on a device that is linked to their company’s systems.   Considerations. Ask your employees – This kind of policy has a big knock on effect for employees so make sure you ask how they feel about such a system before implementing it. Try and find out how many of your employees have a device currently and what level it is. If you are going to have to enforce half your workforce to buy an expensive new smartphone then maybe BYOD isn’t the right strategy for you. However, if the majority of them do have high-quality devices, then the barriers for you are far smaller. Agreements – Make sure your employees know exactly where they stand. Ensure there are agreements in place before any policy is introduced detailing who is responsible for what costs and what happens if any employee leaves the company. If everything is down on paper than at least some complications can be lessened in the future – BYOD agreements are becoming more and more popular due to this reason. Quality Technology – As mentioned, your employees are likely to have a whole range of devices varying in capabilities. So it is very well worth trying to find the technology for your eLearning, for example, that will function on as many as possible. Again, finding out from your employees what devices they have beforehand rather than reacting to problems after rolling out the technology is important when implementing a BYOD policy. Quality Security – Viruses and Spyware can cause untold damage to your business. So before setting BYOD up, research the security options available and see if they will cover what you need. If they don’t, it is probably not worth taking the risk – as with that many devices, someone is likely to pick up a virus. Another way around it is to always make sure people only have access to the data they actually need at any one point to lessen risk – however, this isn’t an overall solution.

                            [body] => Mobile technology Bring Your Own Device: benefits and risks. Guide Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a practice of allowing employees to use their own personal laptops, smartphones, tablets or other devices for work. It has become increasingly popular in recent years, and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, as a way of enabling employees to work remotely, accessing their business' network and data from home or on the go. The practice of BYOD offers many benefits but it is not without risk, especially when it comes to security and data protection. Advantages of BYOD. For some businesses, a successful, well-controlled BYOD environment can: offer greater flexibility increase workforce mobility increase efficiency and productivity raise employee satisfaction allow greater choice in device type cut hardware spend and software licencing costs cut down on device management for business-owned devices With proper use and safety precautions, allowing employees to use their own devices for work can be an ideal workplace policy for some businesses. However, where BYOD is not completely understood and adequately regulated, it can seriously threaten the security of business data and systems. BYOD issues around security and privacy. BYOD raises a number of data protection concerns and can lead to vulnerabilities in information security. For example: Intentionally or accidentally, private information could leak from unprotected and unmanaged devices. Personal devices may lack data encryption capabilities or can be lost or stolen, increasing the risks of data loss or exposure. Personal devices may contain malicious apps or malware or be more vulnerable to attack from online threats. Responsibility to manage passwords, anti-virus and anti-malware protection, security patches and other safety measures, falls onto the device owner, meaning you have little to no control over safeguarding the device. Storage of business and personal data on the same device may be challenging. You must also consider the security of data once it is stored on the device. You may need to modify your current IT infrastructure and tech support to make it BYOD compliant, across the whole range of devices and applications your employees will be using. From a legal perspective, the responsibility for protecting personal information rests with the data controller (ie the organisation), not the device owner. Read the Information Commissioner's Office guidelines on BYOD and data protection and be aware of your duties under the data protection laws, including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR). BYOD and home working best practices. If your staff are working from home and using their own devices to access company software, you should: consider using multi-factor authentication for remote access ensure that the device owner's data and the organisation's data are kept separate ensure that staff cannot inadvertently or deliberately move the organisation's data into their personal storage on the device or onto separate personally-owned devices be aware that the device's security may be compromised and plan accordingly, eg update out-of-date and unpatched operating systems or software If your staff are using their own devices and their own software to access your business applications and data, bear in mind the increased potential for your systems and data to be compromised. For example: out-of-date software or operating systems, weak passwords or insecure methods of communications, such as personal email accounts, may be vulnerable to exploitation devices are likely to be shared between family members, so unauthorised people may be able to access personal data personal devices are unlikely to encrypt data, making it vulnerable in the event of loss or theft of the device data can easily be moved to other insecure storage, including personally-owned USB sticks and external hard drives, which can increase the potential for loss Consider these security risks and put in place measures to mitigate them to avoid potential data breaches. Create a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. Rolling out a BYOD programme in your organisation requires three critical components: a software application for managing the devices that are connecting to the network a written policy outlining both the employer's and the user's responsibilities a user agreement, acknowledging that they have read and understood the policy Before developing your policy, you should conduct a thorough risk assessment and carefully consider your responsibility for data access, processing and storage. A BYOD policy should aim to protect the security and integrity of your company data and technology infrastructure. It should cover things like: acceptable use - which activities are allowed/not allowed for business or personal use devices - which devices are permitted/not permitted apps - which apps are permitted/not permitted, including download of new apps ownership of apps and data and their management support and service - how to deal with connectivity issues, configuration of apps, etc security - what measures will be put in place to prevent unauthorised access to company's data and system, enable remote management of device, etc liabilities - eg for costs associated with the device or for the loss of data or device termination of access - eg for non-compliance with policy, or an employee exit As well as a policy, you should at the very least provide your employees with clear guidance on: how to secure their device by keeping software up to date how to use strong passwords how to minimise the storage of personal data on their devices It is important that staff understand when and how they should report potential data breaches if these occur on their personal devices. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has detailed guidance for organisations considering integrating BYOD into their practices.

                            [body] => The Pros & Cons of a Bring Your Own Device Policy Posted by Brett Long For just about every industry, the use of a mobile device while on the job is commonplace. In fact, not using a device for work would almost seem odd. For many organizations, however, mobile devices in the workplace pose a tricky question: who provides the device? There are two easy answers: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Here’s Your Own Device The BYOD trend is all about companies allowing employees to bring their own devices to work to be used for work purposes. From collecting field data (inspections, photos, etc.), to tracking their time. This is the opposite of the “Here’s Your Own Device” (HYOD) trend, which had historically been more common in companies – a program where the company gives employees mobile devices. Arlington Heavy Hauling decided to give their drivers tablets to allow them to complete paperwork while on the road, making it fast and easy to send data back to the office. As with any new policy, there are pros and cons to BYOD that could influence the way people see the increasing prevalence of these policies in the workplace. Some companies may not even be fully aware of the advantages and disadvantages of BYOD. A Bring Your Own Device policy provides plenty of positives. It also presents several tricky situations for employers. Here’s a breakdown of the pros and cons of implementing a bring your own device policy in your organization. BYOD Advantages and Disadvantages. Advantages of BYOD Policies. Familiarity. One of the biggest pros in the BYOD program is that employees are able to use devices with which they are already familiar. The familiarity that employees have with their own devices allows them to collect data and tackle work-related tasks with increased ease and efficiency and in a more timely manner (because there is no time spent on getting comfortable with the device). Plus, mobile technology can boost workplace productivity. Flexibility. By allowing employees to use their own devices, they are able to work anywhere at any time without needing to use other tools to access work documents. This removes the need to email copies of documents back and forth to be stored in your company system after being worked on. A bring your own device policy also gives the employer greater flexibility to try out new solutions. Trying to collect field data with phones and tablets can be tough when there is technical set-up involved. If a team wants to run a pilot program to try a new mobile forms software, it’s far easier to do without having to go through layers of IT to get an app installed. Financial Savings. BYOD means that employers save money, since they don’t have to buy devices for each of their employees. An added benefit of this is that employees are more likely to take better care of the devices, since they own them. This greatly reduces costs for repairs and updating, if there are any costs at all – a definite pro for BYOD. Disadvantages of BYOD Policies. Liability. When it comes to blurring the distinction between work devices and personal devices, the question of who is liable for repair costs arises. Who should pay for a new device if something goes wrong with it or if it gets stolen while on work time? What about when someone is using the device (or claims to be using the device) for work-related tasks outside of work hours and something goes wrong? These are questions that need to be carefully considered and for which a solution ought to be provided before implementing the BYOD program in your company. Security and Control. Wikipedia explains that BYOD refers to the policy of permitting employees to bring their personal devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) to their workplace, and to use those devices to access privileged company information and applications. Even though security on devices with access to private work information is important, it is more difficult to manage the security on personal devices. Companies using a BYOD program have to contend with the fact that they will be relinquishing control over the appropriate use of employee devices. There’s only so much a company can do to ensure that the devices will be used appropriately. Data Retrieval. After a contract has been terminated or when an employee leaves the company, it may be necessary to remove the company’s private information from the employee’s device, which could prove to be difficult. A plan should be in place to prevent the potential misuse of information. Weighing the BYOD Pros and Cons? Have a Bring Your Own Device Game Plan. In order to limit the potential risks that could come from the implementing of a BYOD program, a policy should be put in place beforehand, explaining the expected and acceptable use of personal devices in the workplace (in place of company provided ones). It is then the role of the employee to ensure that he or she fully understands the program’s policies before agreeing to them. All in all, a well thought out BYOD policy and properly enlightened employees are important in guaranteeing the success of the program. Already running a successful BYOD program?

                            [body] => The Pros and Cons of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to Work Policy A BYOD Policy Is Often a Good Choice for Smaller Companies. ••• Alexander Kirch / EyeEm / Getty Images By Suzanne Lucas Updated on September 17, 2020 Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies are set by companies to allow employees to use their personal smartphones, laptops, and tablets for work. A BYOD policy can help set a business up for success—especially a small company—but there are definite downsides to consider. If you're thinking about implementing a BYOD policy, it's a good idea to review some of the pros and cons before making a decision. Pros Savings for the company on purchasing and replacing technology No learning curve for employees Potential improvement of employee morale More up-to-date tech due to personal upgrades Cons More complex IT support for disparate devices and operating systems Higher security risks Potential loss of employee and company privacy Some employees may not have their own devices Pros of a BYOD Policy . Savings: . With a BYOD policy, you won't have to buy phones and laptops for every employee. Some employees may not have their own devices, but a recent Pew Research survey found that 77% of American adults already own a smartphone, and 92% of people ages 18 to 29 years old own one. In addition, employees are more apt to take better care of their equipment because it actually belongs to them. Usually, employees know that if they lose or break their company phone, it's a pain, but the company will provide a new one. If they lose or break their own phone, this loss tends to be a much bigger deal for the employee. Convenience:  . Employees can stick one phone in their pockets or briefcases and they don't have to worry about taking care of and responding on two devices. Employee preference:  . If John likes iPhones and Jane likes Androids, both can happily use their preferred system. They don't have to learn a new system. Often, if your company pays to install Microsoft Office or Photoshop or whatever software the employee needs for work on an employee's personal laptop, the employee is happy to have the software for personal work as well.  Efficiency: . Employees have no learning curve for new equipment because they already understand how to use their own electronic devices. They can jump in on day one for immediate productivity. Up-to-date technology:  . It's a huge expense for any company to update equipment, but employees are often more motivated to pay to replace their personal phones or laptop with the latest available device. Cons of a BYOD Policy . More complex IT support systems: . If every employee has a standard-issue computer, tablet, and phone, it's easier for the IT department to support and fix the devices. If everyone has their own device, it can become much more complex to keep the electronics functioning. If you need to install custom software, will it work on everyone's devices? What if Jane isn't willing to update her laptop? What if John wants to run Linux while everyone else is running Windows? Higher security risks: . What type of data does your organization generate and use? It's easy to make rules about how employees should use company devices, but it's not quite so easy to tell your employees that they can't let their 13-year-old write a school paper on their own laptop at home. What are you going to do to make sure that your company information is kept secure? Also, when employees leave the company, you'll want to remove any confidential information from any employee device. But, you don't want to delete their personal information. No one is happy if you say, “IT needs to wipe all of your photos and documents from the computer to make sure that you don't take any confidential information.” The potential loss of privacy: . You'll need to determine how you'll secure your company's confidential information before an employee agrees to use his equipment for work. Make sure that you state clearly, from the beginning, what you will do with classified information on the device or you'll have problems when an employee leaves. If Jane is a salesperson who uses her personal phone number for work purposes when she quits and moves to your competitor, all of her clients still have her phone number in their records. When they call, she'll answer, and Jane will have a much easier time moving those clients to her new company. Even if Jane signed a non-compete agreement, if the customers come to Jane, you can't legally stop them. As long as Jane isn't pursuing the customers, she's in the clear. Conclusions About BYOD Policies. A BYOD policy may work well for smaller companies. However, it's wise not to make the decision based purely on the convenience and cost factors. Think about how a BYOD policy will have an impact on your business in terms of privacy, company data safeguarding, security, and IT support. You will want to also think about what device your employees want to use for work. Look to the future and make decisions about how to handle the devices when an employee leaves your organization. -------------------------------------- Suzanne Lucas is a freelance journalist specializing in Human Resources.

                            [body] => The Advantages and Disadvantages of Bring Your Own Device If you’re running a small business you’ll be aware of the costs of the constant updates to technology. Staff requesting the latest phone, tablet or laptop, and complaining that the ‘outdated’ technology you bought a year ago is hampering them are a constant headache. We’ve even heard of staff moving to rivals for the latest gadget! One way to address these issues is by allowing employees to use their own devices. This is called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and aims to reduce costs and increase productivity in small businesses. However simply telling staff to use their own stuff won’t quite cut it. The introduction of BYOD needs to be controlled with a clear policy and careful consideration of security. You will also need to consider your IT Support arrangements. Some providers might not support devices that don’t belong to the business. Why Bring Your Own Device?   According to figures from Statista by 2018 45% of UK businesses were using BYOD. Various sources estimate this had increased to around 60% by the beginning of 2020. At least 20% of those using their own device for work are doing so despite the business having policies forbidding it. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the huge increase in working from home this figure is now likely to be much higher. The sudden move to working from home also mean that many moved to using personal devices without policies in place, and with no adequate security provision. Devices are becoming more and more personal. Trying to dictate which devices employees use is like telling them what brand of pen to use. Individuals are self-sufficient when it comes to IT. They already own their own smart phone, tablet and laptop. These can often be newer and have a higher spec than those purchased by a cost conscious small business. Whilst it might be easier to provide approved hardware and software, employees may not be willing to accept it. It’s probably best to embrace BYOD and understand the benefits and control the risks. The Benefits of Bring Your Own Device. For a small business one of the most significant advantages is a reduction in costs. Hardware spend and software licensing can be reduced. Companies may also notice increased employee satisfaction as staff are able to work more flexibly. Productivity often increases with staff using technology more familiar to them. Using portable devices for work tasks saves employees 58 minutes per day while increasing productivity by 34% (Frost & Sullivan) Offering BYOD can also help attract the best talent. Top performing applicants often demand a level of flexibility that BYOD can bring. You are also likely to see improved communication, with staff available outside hours to answer emails and complete other tasks.   BYOD can also put less stress on your IT systems.  Individuals are often more conscientious when looking after their own device. This means less strain on your IT department or partner. What’s The Downside……….. Bring Your Own Device sounds great then doesn’t it? Lowers costs, happier and more productive staff and less stress on your IT systems. What’s not to like? However caution is advised. Businesses need to consider the full implications of allowing their data to be accessed on personal devices that they could have little or no control over. Arguably the biggest risk is having no BYOD policy in place. Simply allowing employees to bring in their phone, tablet or laptop and giving them access to all the company’s systems and data is not the way to implement BYOD! Security is of course a risk and of paramount importance. You need to guard against data loss or leakage. As a minimum devices will need passcodes or fingerprint unlocking, anti-virus and anti-malware. However, you should also be looking at Multi-Factor Authentication and Mobile Device Management Solutions which allow remote wiping.   You could consider hosted virtual desktops, effectively having two different spaces on a personal device, one for personal use and one for work. Speak to your IT Support Provider about what solutions are available and what might suit you. OK, What’s Next? If you’re going to implement a Bring Your Own Device solution it might be beneficial to start with an audit. Find out what devices people are already using and what they are likely to use. Knowing what operating systems and different devices you are dealing with will help in planning what solutions are required. Once you know what you are dealing with you can start to put together your BYOD policy. An effective policy should cover the following: Acceptable use Authorised devices Support Security Reimbursement Liability/risks/disclaimer We wouldn’t recommend using a generic policy, it really must be tailored to the business and the way in which it operates. However if you want some guidance to get yourself started then the National Cyber Security Centre has produced some helpful guidance. You can also download templates from the web. We would stress this should be a kicking off point only.  Security and Management Software. In terms of security you will need to find solutions that can be used across different platforms as you may have users on Android, Apple and Windows systems. Speak to your IT Support Provider about what solutions are available and what might suit you. Mobile Device Management Software (MDM) is a software suite for managing mobile devices.  For those that are already using the Microsoft ecosystem then Microsoft Intune is a good option. Intune is priced on a per user rather than per device basis, so if you have individuals with a phone, laptop and tablet this might prove cheaper. Intune is included in some Microsoft365 licencing packages – speak to your provider to find out if you already have it. There are some affordable, low maintenance MDM products that can be used in a smaller business to strengthen security and manage data. Codeproof have a ‘Professional’ level which will cover the needs of most SME’s and costs from $3.99 per month, per device or $39.99 per year, per device. Codeproof offer a free 14 day trial. Hexnode is unique in that it is focused solely on the SME market. Prices start from $1 per month, per device and bespoke packages are available.  In conclusion….. Bring Your Own Device shouldn’t be taken lightly. However it has the potential to save money and increase productivity so it certainly shouldn’t be dismissed. As with any decision it’s worth carrying out an assessment of the risk and benefits. But it’s likely that you’re going to be dealing with employees using their own devices sooner or later.  Certainly, if you are a business that’s growing, or planning to grow, it might be sensible to put the building blocks in place with a policy and software solutions that can scale with your business. Speak to your IT Support Provider about your options. They may have some solutions that they can recommend. Remember they are unlikely to support personal devices if this is not pre-agreed. It would be sensible to involve them in your discussions. How we can help. As with any technical solution, we’d recommend talking to an expert. If you’ve stumbled into BYOD due to the pandemic it’s not too late to develop a policy, implement it and put in place some technical controls to protect your business.

Historically, these devices have been banned from the classroom as a result of the distractions they can cause but, more recently, they have begun to offer a real asset to the education sector. Having a good BYOD policy in place is important for many organizations within the education sector but the advantages and disadvantages of introducing it should always be considered first. In this guide: Key advantages of BYODCost savings, flexible working, continuity of education, student familiarity with devices Key disadvantages of BYODIT security, student inequalities, distractions, stress on IT infrastructure What is BYOD? BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device and means that students are able to bring their own devices such as phones, tablets and laptops into class to use them for their studies. BYOD can be used within education to complement existing IT systems, enabling students to access educational apps and resources, and complete coursework and studies through their own devices, away from the classroom. To find out more about BYOD, read our guide. What are the advantages of BYOD? When implemented correctly, BYOD provides a huge number of benefits to both organizations and students: Cost savings. More than 80% of schools are now facing funding cuts, which means organizations must be more resourceful to ensure that access to education doesn’t suffer. IT systems can be an expensive investment for schools and Higher Education organizations but a BYOD policy can bring this cost down significantly. Enabling students to use their own devices both within the classroom and outside the classroom ensures that all students have the same access to the relevant systems, software, and applications, but without the cost of consistently updating technology within the organization. Computer labs are often expensive to run and maintain which is why so many organizations are looking to move away from them and implement different solutions whilst providing students with the same high level of education. Access to up-to-date technology. Many schools and universities deal with out-of-date equipment as it can be extremely costly to update entire computer labs regularly. In contrast, many students are likely to keep up with the latest technology in their personal lives, resulting in the use of faster, more intuitive devices, and less time spent figuring out how to use them. Allowing students to use their own devices for their studies also helps to eliminate the cost of updating entire IT suites to ensure the technology is kept up-to-date and usable. Enables flexible working. Allowing students to work on their own devices both on and off-campus, enables them to be more flexible around where and when they decide to complete their studies. This allows students to complete their coursework and studies in any location and provides them with access to the materials and software they need without being tied to campus computer labs. In the classroom, BYOD helps to simplify the flow of work between the classroom and homework. Students have everything they need on one device so there are fewer issues with saving work across a number of devices and networks. Enables continuity of education. Particularly in Higher Education, providing students with continuity of education is essential. During the Coronavirus pandemic, many universities were forced to implement remote studying facilities almost overnight. For those universities and their students who were already used to using their own devices to access university resources, the switch was fairly straightforward. As a result, many universities are now looking to implement BYOD policies to provide students with the same quality of education whether they’re on or off-campus and, during unprecedented circumstances. Reduces the load for IT support. Investing in systems in campus labs and schools is not only costly initially to set up the equipment, it also requires costly maintenance and support. In many cases, a full-time IT department is required to maintain the equipment and answer student and staff queries. With a BYOD policy in place, the need for this support is minimized as students are more familiar with the devices they’re using. Students also bring up-to-date devices with them which helps to reduce the load on IT departments who must spend huge amounts of time reimaging devices on campus outside of term time.   Student familiarity with devices. Allowing students to bring their own devices with them provides them with more time to focus on their studies instead of trying to get to grips with unfamiliar devices. Students are likely to be more comfortable with using their own devices because they use them for many aspects of their lives. Enables collaborative learning. While many organizations worry that the use of their own devices can provide a distraction for students, when used for educational purposes, they can actually enable and encourage collaboration between students and teachers. For example, if a tutor or teacher is easily reachable through an app or educational network, this makes it simple for students to connect with them from anywhere to ask queries about coursework, homework or lectures. By bringing student’s technology habits into the classroom, it enables them to communicate and collaborate in the way that is most natural to them. Student productivity. Students are likely to be more productive when using their own devices. These are the devices they have chosen to use themselves and therefore enjoy using them and are familiar with the operating system. As mentioned before, the time spent switching across devices is also reduced when allowing students to use their own device across all aspects of their lives, which means more time spent working. Now let's look at the disadvantages. If addressed accordingly, the potential dangers of BYOD can be managed, so that you and your students can enjoy the positives. What are the disadvantages of BYOD? May highlight inequality. One of the biggest downsides to BYOD is that not all students can afford the latest technology. Having a BYOD policy in place may highlight the differences in wealth and access to devices between students. Some organizations may be able to supply spare devices so that those without their own can borrow suitable equipment equal to that of their peers. When implementing BYOD, organizations should assess the number of students who may struggle to access relevant devices and factor this into the policy and the way it works. IT Security. Another consideration to make is that BYOD can leave organizations open to additional security and cyber threats. With students accessing university and school networks, software, and resources across the same devices they use in their everyday lives, organizations are left more vulnerable to students sharing sensitive data and open to hackers. If devices are stolen from users, organizations may find their network open to further attack. BYOD devices can be equipped with anti-virus software and security apps to prevent attacks or unauthorized access to school networks. May cause distractions. While BYOD is beneficial to both students and their organizations, bringing personal devices into the classroom leaves students with the opportunity to take advantage and use their device for personal reasons. However, the benefits to costs and pressure on IT systems for organizations, as well as the increase in student engagement and productivity rates, outweigh this. Increased stress on IT infrastructure. With students, faculty staff and on-campus staff, all trying to connect to the same network through their personal devices, the strain on the network can be much greater and can lead to connectivity issues, slow connections and poor quality service which can be frustrating for students who are trying to access resources to complete studies or coursework. Consumer app stores. Apple and Google’s app stores – to name just two – have made us all expect to be able to access software on-demand. When we need an app at home, after a few clicks we’re able to download and use it, without a complex installation procedure or a need to put in requests from corporate IT for software access. This is starting to extend to the workplace, where employees expect things here and now. COVID-19. Understandably, COVID-19 has thrust the world into a situation where many have had to work from home, or away from the office in general. This is the same for Higher Education, where students and staff alike must teach and study from their homes. While many corporate institutions can provide employees with managed laptop devices for home-use in the interim, this isn’t the same for Higher Education. Universities and colleges need to make resources and IT available to access on student-owned devices, anywhere and anytime. In some capacity, all these factors have contributed to BYOD becoming what it is today; an unstoppable force in the world of corporate IT, for nearly every industry that exists. Summary. Overall, when used effectively, giving students control over their own education through BYOD can reap rewards for both students and organizations. All policies should be carefully considered before being introduced, along with security measures to allow safe and effective remote learning for students in schools and in Higher Education Some useful & related reading...

                            [body] => Are You Aware of these BYOD Advantages and Disadvantages? by Jason Blalock on May 17, 2018 Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies seem to offer a simple proposition: let your employees use their own cell phones, laptops and tablets rather than requiring they use company-issued devices. However, this "simple" solution is more complicated than one might expect. To help companies navigate this concept, we have compiled a list of BYOD advantages and disadvantages. The Advantages Of BYOD. 1. Cost savings. When you think of BYOD, do you see dollar signs? Eliminating the cost of phones for an entire workforce can free up a lot of money. When the cost of data plans is also removed, as some businesses do, BYOD seems like a no brainer. 2. Morale. Another advantage is morale. Employees generally like using the devices they're familiar with. The touch pad works just as it should and the “control” key is right where it should be. All is well. 3. Productivity. Productivity may be improved. Being familiar with certain devices\OSes helps employees use them more effectively and efficiently. No time is wasted on navigating programs, folders or keys.   The Disadvantages Of BYOD. 1. Security . This is the biggest concern, and it’s anticipated to grow. Mobile malware, which disguises itself in advertisements and applications, poses a specific threat to BYOD devices. Companies will need to take extra actions to ensure devices are secure. This can include antivirus protection and data loss prevention, which may cause restrictions to the users' activities. 2. Exit Procedures. In addition, any business documents or data will need to be wiped from the employee’s equipment should they leave the company. 3. Support. Support issues are an extra concern. Support will be required for multiple devices and operating systems as employees bring a variety of devices.  Alternatives To BYOD. If you like the flexibility that BYOD affords, but don't like the potential risks, here are a few alternatives. 1. COPE . Corporate Owned/Personally Enabled: The employer buys the device and owns it, but the employee can treat it as their own and use it for personal issues. This lends extra control to the concept of BYOD. Unfortunately, it also introduces a lot of personal privacy issues that many employees may not be comfortable with.   2. CYOD . Choose Your Own Device: The employer creates a whitelist of allowed devices, only allowing BYOD for those devices. This can cut down on security problems, by only allowing devices you know are secure. Unfortunately, this may leave employees having to purchase new equipment if their devices do not make the cut. What is best for your business? Is BYOD a viable option? That depends on your individual business. Some issues can be mitigated with network solutions, such as robust access points, mobile device management and more.

                            [body] => The risk and benefits of BYOD at workBring Your Own Device (BYOD) involves employees using their personal devices — such as smartphones, tablets and laptops — for work. It can bring flexibility and reduces the capital costs of investing in new technology. However, BYOD doesn’t really have the greatest reputation. There are many challenges with the practice of BYOD, such as security issues, which is why so many employers are reluctant to implement the policy. Despite this, 67% of people use their own devices at work anyway. Whether BYOD is an official policy within an organisation or not, mobile phones will be used for work purposes. When implemented properly, there are many advantages to BYOD. It can provide employees with the freedom and flexibility to more easily get tasks done. Here, we’ll go through the many risks and benefits of BYOD at work so you can decide whether it’s worth implementing in your workplace. The risks of BYOD at work. When it comes to allowing employees to use their own mobile devices at and for work, conventional wisdom on the subject is — don’t. Many employers believe that BYOD creates more vulnerabilities than it’s worth, potentially resulting in employee distractions, reduced productivity and security issues. In fact, 39% of enterprises cite security concerns as the main reason why they are reticent to adopt a BYOD policy. And, while this is certainly an over-simplification, that’s not to say that their concerns aren’t legitimate or understandable. 1. Data security concerns. In all fairness, BYOD raises potential security concerns of which businesses need to be cognisant before designing and implementing a policy. These include:Data theft - BYOD allows for easy communication with employees, no matter where they are. But if they’re communicating with you at a coffee shop, airport or train station over an unsecured Wi-Fi network, this can expose sensitive data to opportunistic hackers. Malware infiltration - Your company computers and devices are well insulated from Malware risks. Your employees’ personal devices, however, will likely not have such robust protection. They may download an app or game containing a virus that could find its way into your network.Accidental data loss - If an employee loses a device that they use for work, they can potentially also lose vital data. The consequences of this can be seriously damaging to employee productivity and, at worst, bring your entire organisation to its knees. 2. No BYOD policy outlined. The inherent risks of employees bringing their own mobile devices to work are compounded when you don’t have a clear and consistent policy in place. Acceptable use policies need to be clearly defined so that your team knows which apps and assets can be used. Company rights need to be established to prevent the leakage of sensitive data, and security tools need to be made available to employees where needed. Ownership of apps and data need to be clearly defined and accountability needs to be established. Without this infrastructure, companies cannot insulate themselves from the risk of vulnerability. Ultimately, you need a BYOD program to make BYOD work.3. Lack of employee training. While employees don’t need training in the use of their own devices, they do need to be trained in how to use them safely and appropriately for work. 90% of security breaches are caused not by a lack of sophisticated encryption but by human error. As such, appropriate hands-on training needs to be administered so that employees understand how to use their devices safely for work.  The benefits of BYOD at work. Although the risks of implementing BYOD are not to be ignored, neither are the advantages. If companies implement a BYOD policy properly and securely, they can mitigate the risks while opening themselves up to a number of distinct advantages These include… 1. Increases employee productivity . If there’s one thing upon which virtually all companies can agree, it’s that they could benefit from improving their productivity. And anything that improves how much each employee is able to get out of their working day is worth at least considering.Employees are inherently more productive when using their own familiar tech. In fact, smartphone use, far from being detrimental to productivity, can actually increase it by as much as 34%. Extrapolate this across every employee every day, and the possibilities are certainly exciting. Moreover, many of your employees will likely be digital natives for whom their smartphone is an extension of themselves. When they use their own devices at work they can spend more time on important things rather than learning how to use the digital tools you give them. According to a study by Dell, 61% of Gen Y (millennials) and 50% of workers over 30 believe that tech tools they use in their personal lives are more effective and productive than those used in their professional lives.2. Save money. Another point upon which all companies and business owners can agree is that they’d all like to save money and facilitate an easier cash flow. Embracing BYOD can help you to do exactly that. Companies that implement BYOD successfully actually make an annual saving of around $270 (£209) per year, per employee. Which makes sense. If employees are using their own devices, companies are spared the overhead costs of supplying them, not to mention the savings that come from increased employee productivity. That makes for some pretty impressive savings! 3. Recognise employees using social platforms . When employees use their personal devices at work, it makes for easier and more efficient communications. Workplace social platforms such as Rippl, Kudos, Yammer, the aptly named Workplace and Slack are just some of the communication tools companies use to help their employees interact and engage with each other. No longer does a conversation need to be followed across emails, texts and phone calls. BYOD allows for better quality employee interactions and a better sense of cohesion through the use of social platforms. However, this can become a distraction. You may need to use a different kind of social platform. One that looks and feels familiar but also helps you to recognise your employees’ achievements and encourage peer to peer employee recognition. Fortunately, there are a number of these apps which have a clear focus on employee recognition. And 69% of employees feel that if their efforts are better appreciated, they are more likely to work harder.These platforms enable you to utilise BYOD in a productive way that’s highly conducive to employee engagement and harmonious workplace relationships. More recognition helps employees to feel valued, which in turn can further boost not only productivity but employee retention — reducing turnover. Some of these dedicated platforms can even be used to allow employees to earn rewards through targeted incentives aligned to business goals.It’s plain to see that recognition and acknowledgement of employees’ accomplishments can be incredibly advantageous in perpetuating the right kind of workplace culture and helping employees to feel more valued. When these recognition-oriented apps are used in conjunction with BYOD, and an appropriate policy, the benefits of both are increased.  Create a BYOD policy and reap the rewards. Implementing BYOD may come with caveats (what operational measure doesn’t?). Nonetheless, there are a number of tangible benefits which is why when so many companies give it a try, they seldom look back.With proper implementation, a solid data plan, a clear policy and ample employee training, companies can reap the benefits while neatly sidestepping the risks. They can help you to get the best out of employees and help employees to get the best out of themselves and each other. Consulting an external service can help you to facilitate easy and secure implementation. Whatever apps you use to assist employee communication, recognise achievement and implement potential rewards, make sure that they can be implemented seamlessly and securely across a broad spectrum of employee devices, as well as providing a good level of support.With the right combination of software tools, comprehensive and consistent policy and rigorous security measures, the sky’s the limit for employee productivity and satisfaction.

                            [body] => Bring Your Own Device Pros and Cons in the workplace June 22, 2021 Ayush Maskara Bring your own devices (BYOD) policies with unbalanced advantages and disadvantages in an organization sounds like cancellation of weekend plans subsidized with organizational tasks in awry. Despite its set of advantages and disadvantages, BYOD’s global growth in mobility ownership as predicted by Global Market Insights states that the adoption will grow by 15% annually in the US by 2022¹. Weighing the Pros and Cons of BYOD in an organization Looking from the point of view of the organizations for curbing as much cost as possible and improving the productivity with better end-user experience, the question of data threats and security still remains. No doubt, it calls for the framing of BYOD policies from top to bottom for balancing the pros and cons. Before analyzing the pros and cons of BYOD in detail, let’s first understand the ownership model of BYOD as defined by Techopedia²: “Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to employees who bring their own computing devices – such as smartphones, laptops, and tablet PCs – to work with them and use them in addition to or instead of company-supplied devices.” The model typically indicates an employee bringing their personal devices like phones or laptops for operational and business purposes in the office premise wherein the employer decides monthly remunerations for the data and usage plans along with other related expenses for offset costs. However, not informing the employees about the potential data security threats while using their personal devices for work can be a costly affair.  There are several advantages that the organization can sign-up for by allowing the usage of BYOD by employees but if the usage of such devices is not free from contingencies, it might create problems.  Wondering what are the pros and cons of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in detail for your organization? Read on! Advantages of BYOD setup in a workplace. 1. Sense of belonging. It is obvious that the workforce in the organization will feel inclusive and more participative as soon as the organization allows using personal devices for work purposes at the premises. Introducing this culture imbibes the will for active participation by the workforce and boosts the level of productivity with exponential outcomes.  Is it measurable and transparent? As per research conducted by the Social Market Foundation, employees who are a part of the BYOD culture in an organization have seen a sharp increase of 20% in their productivity level apart from their malcontented counterparts³. The implementation of BYOD in an organization might yield a better return on investment as an added advantage from its workforce, yet the unfavorable probability will weigh more when it comes to data breaches and compromises.  2. Thriving productivity levels. Implementation of BYOD practices, its policies, and frameworks on the office premise have statistically proved to yield a sharp rise in productivity levels by the workforce. But is there any way we can prove the theory with practical examples? Here are a few statistics compiled for you: As per the reports by Dell4, 61% of Gen Y and 50% of workers over 30 years of age believe that the tech tools they are using in their personal lives are more effective and productive than those which they have already used in their work life.Frost and Sullivan5 state that using personally acquired portable devices for work saves 58 minutes per day while increasing productivity by 34% overall.A survey by ITProPortal6 mentions that a BYOD policy-enabled workforce contributes an extra two hours and sends more than 20 emails each day with a better response rate. It is evident that BYOD is widely being accepted as a new normal transition for better workforce productivity and enhanced operational outcomes. Source 3. Company cost-saving. Buying workstation-friendly devices such as laptops, mobile phones, and other peripheral verticals to contribute to the operational cycle by the workforce is a costly affair. Also, there is a probability that your workforce might not be familiar with the models of devices or the OS you are deploying for operational inputs. The organization might have to introduce training sessions to procure the best possible inputs from the workforce using the managed devices. Also, there is a probability that you might not be able to yield the best possible operational outcome even after spending a significant amount of money to procure and deploy the managed devices. This is because the workforce might still have second thoughts in experimenting with, learning and using the unfamiliar devices in the initial phase. Here, BYOD plays a major role not only in enhancing the level of productivity but also saves you from making significant investments in corporate-owned hardware. BYOD can play a vital role in areas such as communication, training, and support. It is one of many touchstone decisions that can contribute to better engagement and transfer of new working ways with effective outcomes by the workforce. 4. No worry about upgrades. In the above point, we have mentioned that implementing a BYOD policy in a workplace can be a cost-saving measure since the devices used by the employees are the ones that they are familiar with in and out. Apart from these factors, the other advantage that BYOD offers is that organizations need not worry about incurring any significant costs for upgrading devices to the latest models. In the BYOD scenario, it is natural that the workforce will be using their personally-owned device to execute their organizational operations rather than the corporate-owned devices. Now, most individuals prefer to upgrade their phones as soon as new technology hits the market, which might not be the case when it comes to organizations. Now, since the workforce will be upgrading their phones more frequently, they will be exposed to better technology and the organization can scoop this opportunity to yield those upgrades and acquire better productivity skills. Disadvantages of BYOD in a workplace. 1. Unfamiliar devices and their technology. Every pros come with cons attached and it will only be visible while weighing both with a balanced eye. The implementation of BYOD might not always be an advantageous slope. There will always be unexposed concerns while consenting the workforce to use personal devices at work and for work. One such con is the lack of consistency and uniformity. In an organization, every workforce will use different personal devices which will operate on different OS platforms. There will be a mix of Android, iOS, Mac, or even Windows users in the same team. Some will use email clients with varying email providers. If one is using the latest innovative technology, others might still have backdated platforms wherein the unexpected operating concerns can crop up. To collaborate and execute their operations, team members may be required to learn different OS platforms and also explore the contingencies of fixing the errors as and when they arise without proper knowledge. This can only be prevented if the entire team members are using the same devices so that the hassle of execution of work such as directions, SOPs, and critical information exchange is streamlined without disruption. However, the end-user will have to bear the cost, not the organization. 2. Data security concerns. Data security concerns are the prime and foremost potential security threat attached to BYOD policies in an organization. Until and unless the framework can define the parameter on how the organization can curb such instances once it occurs, it can open windows of disaster for data compromisation or leak. The frameworks designed by the company have to explicitly define the usage of organizational business-critical data and how the BYO devices can secure themselves from potential threats. However, these models are not full-proof and are a disadvantage over the actual implementation.  If the organizations deployed managed and dedicated devices, they will have more control over the usage of the device, have security layered on critical assets and data control. However, it is entirely impossible to monitor and manage personal devices which are more prone to risk with a minimal level of control. Source 3. Privacy of workforce assets. Another disadvantage that BYOD has in the corporate domain is the risk of privacy and security on unmanaged devices. It’s the pain point for all the organizations that are yet to implement the BYOD policies since the unbalanced strings are yet not justified on either party. If the organizations tighten the security and limit privacy or vice versa, it will still reflect unilateral consideration. Even the world’s most famous social networking company Facebook7 revealed that privacy is prime to individuals at any cost. If an organization fails to satisfy the privacy factor, it might land the company’s reputation below the ground or can visibly hamper its goodwill. So, justifying the privacy of workforce assets on the personal devices for organizational operations in BYOD is still a serious concern with no correct answer yet. Despite all the factors, even if the organizations implement the BYOD policy, the series of unanswered questions still stands. How much privacy is allowed? And what are the security measures that can be implemented consensually to both parties? Balancing the thin line of securing the corporate assets without compromising the personal device owner’s privacy can sometimes be a difficult path or even the road you might never take. 4. Different software, different devices. There is no single individual on earth who is not exposed to technology, its advancements and appreciates how its contribution has made life simpler and easier. But, we start to crib and move on to better technology or devices as soon as the present possessions stop functioning to their best.  Similarly, in the BYOD model, there will be different devices functioning in different OS and used by different persons. The only disadvantage is lack of compatibility as different devices will have the ability to support a specific version or limited capability of software. This makes the BYOD synchronization in the workplace a bit difficult with uncertainty in output.   Each software developed is compatible with specific parameters to run in optimum efficiency for specific platforms and also for specific devices when it comes to functionality. It can never be “one version for all the platforms” ever in any situation. In an organization, if there are 50 employees who are using their personal devices for operations, it is evident that they will have dissimilar devices catering to a different OS, and finding a specific productive software that can work for all is impossible. Even if the source codes are altered to make it running, failure of functionality while working can invite disaster and restart the troubleshooting process without the backup of lost work. However, there is no guarded solution for this con, it can yet be a major headache with unavoidable circumstances. Weighing the pros and cons of BYOD. On careful contemplation of the pros and cons of BYOD, It is evident that there are a bunch of factors that an organization has to weigh before the implementation of BYOD policies. The organization has to define such a framework wherein the unveiling of personal assets and privacy of its workforce is not hampered as well as the organizational data are secured without the certainty of breach or leakage. Is there any better solution for the implementation of BYOD policy in an organization without much heed? . Yes, there is. Scalefusion MDM solution can help the IT admins of the organization to examine the end-point security by compartmentalization of separate work and personal profiles in the same device. This will bifurcate the mission-critical corporate assets and all the sensitive information which can be monitored with limited access to the device’s personal apps and content without hampering the personal assets of the device’s owner.

                            [body] => Pros & Cons of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) by RSI Security June 6, 2019November 1, 2019 written by RSI Security June 6, 2019November 1, 2019 For some people, BYOD pros and cons may sound like an office Christmas party request gone awry. In actuality, BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device. This particular four-letter acronym poses a serious cyber-security question for every company, regardless of size. Whether you are a corporate giant or a small business, the pros and cons of bringing your own device require a BYOD top-down policy. Allowing your employees to make that decision independently or not addressing the potential security issues that come with BYOD is a grave mistake. That’s because your mobile device, especially when connected to your company’s network, offers an opportunity for hackers to exploit. However, unilaterally banning personal devices from your workplace may provoke a riot among your employees. There are also productivity advantages of allowing personal devices for business use. Naturally, with great power comes great responsibility. If you ever wondered about the pros and cons of bringing your own device, read on!   The Pros of BYOD. 1. A Happier Workforce. Naturally, employees will be happier if they can use their personal devices at work and for work. This isn’t breaking news. Of course, employee happiness isn’t the be all and end all. Every day employers must make decisions that upset the rank and file; that’s just life. However, a happy employee is a productive one and productivity is always good for business. How good? According to a study by the Social Market Foundation, happy employees are up to 20% more productive than their malcontented counterparts. The comparison is even starker when it relates to sales. According to the Harvard business review, salespeople are up to 37% more productive when the good times are rolling. There also appears to be a correlation in organizational appreciation when it comes to content employees. Forbes reported that “the stock prices of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work for” rose 14% per year from 1998 to 2005, while companies not on the list only reported a 6% increase.” Every business decision comes with pluses and minuses. Weighing those factors and choosing wisely is the role of sound management. The numbers we just reported would seem to favor giving employees what they want when it comes to BYOD. Yet, not every business weighs the same factors on the other side of employee happiness. A security breach could undo all that productivity in a heartbeat and that is really what management must weigh.   Assess your BYOD security   2. Enhanced Productivity. So we know that a happy employee gets more done than an unhappy one. But, what if the simple act of allowing employees to use their own devices made them more productive? Based on the reported numbers, it’s clear that it does: “61% of Gen Y and 50% of 30+ workers believe the tech tools they use in their personal lives are more effective and productive than those used in their work life.”(Dell) “Using portable devices for work tasks saves employees 58 minutes per day while increasing productivity by 34%.”(Frost and Sullivan) “A BYOD enabled employee works an extra two hours and sends 20 more emails every day.”(ITProPortal) “One out of three BYOD employees checks work emails before the official start of their working day, between 6 am and 7 am.”(ITProPortal) It makes total sense that people would be more effective using their own devices rather than a work phone or laptop. Who wouldn’t be more efficient using the device they stare at for ten hours of the day? Smartphones and computers are more a part of our everyday lives than ever. There is now an actual phobia, nomophobia, that describes the anxiety of not having your smartphone. Some people spend nearly their entire lives attached to their devices. Allowing them to use them for work only increases their likelihood of production.     3. Decreased Costs. The alternative of BYOD in your workplace is providing devices for all your employees. That’s not an insignificant cost, especially if you are a large company. You also have to take into account that many of your employees may not be well versed in the type of devices you select. Therefore, many will require training which adds another expense. Even after buying devices for everyone and training those who need it, your employees still won’t be as effective on their work phone as they would be on their personal device. There’s also an added expense for lost or broken devices! Ultimately, BYOD saves you money in a few crucial areas: telecommunications, hardware, support, and training. According to Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group that adds up to $3,150 per employee per year. Cisco’s study also found that the Internet of Everything (IoE), which is defined as “the intersection of People, Process, Data, and Things” holds a tremendous amount of value. How much value? 21% of corporate profits or $14.4 trillion worldwide over the next decade. The world is changing rapidly and those who make the right decisions first will gain a leg up on those missteps. BYOD is one of many touchstone decisions.   4. Speed and Power. As we just discussed, allowing BYOD into your workplace is a substantial cost-cutting measure. It also allows workers to be more productive since they are attached to the hip with their phones anyway. What’s more is that BYOD policies decrease costs and increase productivity in another way you probably haven’t thought of yet: upgrades. By allowing BYOD into your workplace, employees will use their personal devices for work rather than corporate-issued phones. Naturally, people upgrade their phones far more regularly than a business would. Therefore, you’ll have employees using faster and newer technology to get things done. So the math works out to faster, more modern phones versus cheaper, slower and older phones that you as an employer must purchase.   The Cons Of BYOD . 1. Lack Of Uniformity. Of course, weighing the pros and cons of BYOD isn’t all rose petals and sunshine. There are downsides to allowing personal phones for work. One that can cause some headaches is the lack of consistency. Obviously, not everyone will be utilizing the same type of devices. Some workers may favor iPhones or Mac, while others may be PC or Android users. If you’ve got a team of ten people and six are on Dells and four are on Macs, some operating issues will likely crop up. It also may require people to learn two different operating procedures and other complications that may breed animosity. Naturally, if everyone is on the same devices, everything is cleaner. Directions, SOPs and information packets all work seamlessly without disruption or hassle. Your IT department will certainly thank you if you require everyone on the same devices. You may just have to pay for it.   2. Security Issues. Quite frankly, potential security issues are the number one problem associated with BYOD policies. You really have to trust the cybersecurity instincts of your workforce to allow BYOD. That’s because allowing dozens to hundreds of different types of devices into your workplace without faith in their owner’s security sense is a recipe for disaster. It’s like giving children scissors on the playground: an accident is inevitable. The complexity of your security environment must increase if you choose to allow BYOD policies. It’s simple math. The more personal devices and device types within a workplace, the more potential for leaks. With dedicated work phones, employers gain far more control over the information employees access, enterprise data, and how those devices are used. It’s so much harder for data to fall into the wrong hands if companies supply their own work phones. It offers a level of control that simply isn’t available within BYOD. We should mention that there are Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM) services that provide a middle ground. These services allow you to give employees the BYOD policies that they want, while still having a measure of security. However, these services have costs and are not foolproof by any means. The greatest EMM, MDM or MAM services can’t save you from employees not understanding cybersecurity threats. Dedicated work phones are the best means to ensure workers and productive AND secure.     3. Employee Privacy. The inevitable push and pull of security can be boiled down into two sides: privacy and security. The more security you have, the less privacy you allow and vice versa. It’s the plot of hundreds of movies and a serious talking point in the world today. As Facebook recently found out, privacy is important to people. For businesses, not allowing the proper amount of privacy can cost you money, damage your reputation and even land you in jail. It’s a serious issue, one that doesn’t have one right answer. BYOD policies face those exact same issues. If you allow phones in the workplace, how much privacy do you allow your workers? If you give them too much, they may cause security breaches intentional or not that cost the company money, possibly even its viability. There is an obligation to protect the organization’s data as well as the privacy of your workforce. Walking the line of allowing BYOD to increase productivity, while protecting workers privacy can be difficult, even impossible at times.   4. Legal Issues. Of course, everyone’s favorite subject, potential litigation, was due to make an appearance on this list. Naturally, sensitive or proprietary information stored on an employee’s personal phone could cause serious potential harm. If that information falls into the wrong hands, who is to blame? Understanding how quickly the BYOD legal waters can become very murky is absolutely vital. The last thing you want is to end up in court in a three-way legal standoff between a former employee, a client and yourself. All data is not created equal. Some data comes with legal stipulations such as transfer or erasure rules. Employees who do not understand the complications can quickly find themselves in trouble, which in turn, can create problems for the company. There’s also the smaller but valid problem of hourly workers and BYOD policies. Hourly workers in some states legally may be able to claim compensation if they access data outside of their normal hours. As we mentioned, understanding all the legal ramifications of BYOD is critical. A courtroom is never a fun place to be unless you are Judge Judy. So, find the right people to help you understand how the laws in your state may relate to BYOD.   5. Software Issues. We all love technology. It’s made our lives so much easier. Then, undoubtedly, something goes wrong and we suddenly hate that technology a lot. It’s part of the gift and curse of convenience. We appreciate convenience until it’s taken away and then it drives us nuts that is no longer there. Software issues are a perfect example of that quick turn from love to hatred. BYOD may offer many great conveniences but when it comes to software, it can be a real nightmare.   When it comes to software, it isn’t a “one type fits all” situation. And when you have 80 employees with various types of devices, finding software that works for all of them can be frustrating. Even if you do get it all up and running, inevitably there will be patches and upgrades that might require for the entire process to start over again. Outsourcing your IT to Software-as-a-Service is the easiest way to avoid a major headache. Unfortunately, that isn’t foolproof. Chances are you’ll have a few employees struggling to use their devices.     BYOD Pros and Cons in A Nutshell. Clearly, there are a number of factors that every organization must weigh before approving BYOD policies. The number one consideration should be the security of the organization. If the company’s work is varied and spread in many different sectors, BYOD would likely create too many security issues that outweigh the potential boost in productivity. The ultimate goal is to boost productivity without compromising security. Examining your endpoint security and bifurcating sensitive information into secure data stores with limited access, is conducive to BYOD policies. If employees can access the information they need without jeopardizing the company, the downside to BYOD is limited. It all just depends on the type of work involved and how your information system is set up.

The traditional workplace is quickly becoming a thing of the past. One policy gaining rapid popularity is Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), which refers to employees bringing their personal devices (such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets) into the workplace and using those devices to access their company’s data, systems, and applications. There are various advantages and disadvantages of BYOD programs. We’ve outlined a few of them for you! Get a FREE assessment to see if BYOD is right for your organization. Advantages of BYOD . Reduced Costs: Although not every organization will see cost savings from a BYOD program, many organizations will save money because they don’t have to purchase devices for each employee. Plus, employees are generally more likely to take better care of their own devices, which saves money on repairs. Organizations that purchase smartphones with voice and data plans for their employees may benefit from additional cost savings.Increased Employee Satisfaction & Productivity: Another advantage of BYOD programs is increased employee productivity. This is due to the fact that users are more comfortable and familiar with their personal devices. Employees can take full advantage of their device and its features because they are an expert at navigating the device. Generally, employees will be more satisfied because they have the opportunity to select the device that they prefer, rather than having one selected for them. Plus, employees are more likely to check their email and work at night if they are on their own devices.Increased Flexibility: Another advantage of BYOD programs is the flexibility that they offer. They offer new mobile workforce opportunities, as employees can work anywhere at any time. With increased flexibility, organizations are more likely to attract more top-performing employees. Disadvantages of BYOD . Security: One of the biggest challenges of BYOD programs is the issue of security. Employees will be accessing sensitive information on their personal devices, and managing security on personal devices can be difficult. When a company owns the device, they can dictate how the device will be used by blocking certain websites and monitoring activity if necessary. One security-related challenge is ensuring all of the personal devices are protected from malware, especially if they are connecting to the Internet from private and public locations all over the world.Supporting Various Devices: When companies own their devices, they have the benefit of selecting a small number of devices to support. This makes it significantly easier on the IT department because they can become familiar with the devices. With the need to support various devices and operating systems, companies may need to increase their IT staff for additional support. It can also be more difficult to quickly and efficiently download software updates and security patches on various devices.Scalability: Another challenge of BYOD programs is the issue of scalability. Many employees use multiple personal devices, and many organizations simply don’t have the network infrastructure required to handle all of the extra traffic. Is BYOD The Right Choice? . There are various advantages and disadvantages of BYOD programs, but whether it is a good fit for your company will depend on your individual organization. It’s important to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. To implement a successful BYOD program, you should ensure you have:A clear BYOD policy in place with a defined security policyThe IT overhead to support various devicesAnd the infrastructure scalability to handle increased traffic A Hybrid Option . Another flexible option for organizations is a hybrid program in which some employees receive company-owned devices, while others are allowed to use their personal devices. This allows organizations to provide devices for employees who may need to access sensitive data; employees who aren’t likely to access sensitive data may be able to use their own devices without increased security risks.If you need help deciding whether a BYOD program is the right fit for your organization or you need help ensuring you have the security and scalability needed for a BYOD program, give the experts at RTI a call! We can help you weigh the pros and cons plus ensure your organization is equipped for success. Date Posted: 7/26/18Date Last Updated: 6/17/20By: RTI Marketing Team Riverside Technologies, Inc.

                            [body] => News & BlogCategoriesBack to News & BlogBlog - 23 May 2021Advantages and Disadvantages of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) ProgramsTechnology is all around us and plays a major role in everyday life, plus when it comes to education. As technology advances, it becomes important for children to learn from the plethora of educational apps and programs at their disposal.A Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program allows children to bring their own laptop or tablet to school for use in the classroom. Schools can implement BYOD programs from as early as prep or foundation year and have been a topic of debate for a number of years. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages and disadvantages of a BYOD policy that have been discussed. ### Advantages of Bring Your Own Device ProgramsThe way in which students learn has evolved and children are more than ever engaged with devices. Harnessing the power of online learning, teachers are using technology in the classroom to educate and inspire their students.Interactive experiences are an effective way to introduce primary school children to how they can learn online, including the likes of gamification. Many workplaces require a level of technological knowledge and exposing children to devices in primary school means that they are competent at performing basic tasks.Importantly, having access to a device teaches children from a young age the rules of online behaviour, including how to safely interact online whilst at home and in the classroom too. Schools can monitor internet safety for children and can guide them about online etiquette.From a convenience perspective, being able to work on the one device at school and at home allows children to complete a task seamlessly – work is kept in the same place, enhancing the engagement of students. In addition, having access to various apps allows children to create for the purpose of learning, collaborate with their peers and share their work.Moreover, during COVID-19, learning from home has allowed teachers to communicate with parents and share feedback with them so that progress can be tracked. ### Disadvantages of Bring Your Own Device ProgramsIt can be argued that a BYOD program can be a disadvantage to those who are not in a financial position to supply their own device. Whilst this can be the case, it is important to speak with your school about any concerns so that your child has the same learning opportunities as other students.Like most who use devices, distraction is a concern if attention is brought to the wrong areas. Children can be tempted by games, text messages or watching videos when they should be focusing on other areas. This is a common area of concern and teachers are well aware that distractions affect most children. To combat this, regular reinforcement of the rules of screen use exist and restrictions can be managed fairly by the school and family.Online bullying and security also pose to be potential disadvantages if not managed in the right manner. Schools will have a technology use policy for students to sign and there are also versions available online, such as this one.Parenting in the digital world is not without challenge and navigating technology is something that both families and schools work together on.

                            [body] => BYOD: The advantages and disadvantages of a growing trend Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a term used to describe employees bringing their own devices into work (such as smartphones and tablets) with the intention of connecting to the company network, downloading apps, taking notes on and improving their productivity. BYOD schemes are reportedly set to see a massive rise in popularity throughout 2013 as increasing numbers of people purchase smartphones and tablets and want to use them in the office. Businesses are also seeing the advantages of BYOD as they are able to pass on some of the technology expenses to employees. A recent survey for Citrix by Wakefield Research revealed that in the UK more than 90 per cent of organisations are seeing employees downloading their own apps for business use with almost two-thirds of these companies concerned about unmanaged app usage in the workplace and the effects it has on the privacy of that organisation's data. "Where the use of employee-owned devices is permitted, the employer must be conscious to ensure that the introduction of the employee-owned device into its network does not lower the standard of data security beyond the level required. "At the same time however, employers must also think about their obligations to their employees. It may be that a 'Choose Your Own Device' policy, where employees can select what devices they wish to use for work purposes, could be a better solution," said Luke Scanlon, Technology Lawyer at Pinsent Masons. Bring or choose, the trend is for employees to use such tools for storage note-taking and free apps such as Skype for voice communications. The numbers are already impressive. Yammer has more than five million corporate users, Google apps have 40 million active users and Dropbox has more than 50 million users. However you decide to go about creating a Bring Your Own Device or Choose Your Own Device Policy, be sure to address your policy on these issues: Jail-broken or rooted devicesReporting lost or stolen devicesWhat happens when an employee leaves the companySupport mechanisms and expectationsDisclaimers for liability of loss of personal applications or data BYOD schemes have proven successful at many organisations already and this trend is set to grow considerably in popularity throughout 2013 and beyond.

[UPDATED 2021]You are here:HomeTechnologyBring Your Own Device Advantages… Apr12021TechnologyWirelessWorking BetterThe term Bring Your Own Device, BYOD, was first used in 2004 and began more common use in 2009. Personal devices include cell phones, tablets, and laptops that employees bring to work and connect them to the corporate network. Employees request BYOD because it allows them flexibility in choice of devices and there’s no need to shuffle between multiple different devices. However, companies will have to consider the risk to security BYOD imposes. There are of course advantages and disadvantages to consider before adopting this practice. As smartphones continue to make their way into the hands of the majority of the population, the decision on BYOD in the workplace becomes increasingly critical. There are plenty of additional devices that will be considered too such as smart watches, tablets, laptops, and eventually even more advanced wearable tech like Google Glass or Apple’s Glasses. Its best to make this important decision now, create a plan for how to implement, and get all of the important information into the employee handbook.   Advantages of Bring Your Own Device. Employees are familiar with their own devices. This means that employees who are familiar with Apple products won’t have to spend the time familiarizing themselves with Android devices and vice versa. This can not only increase productivity but employee satisfaction as well. Potential savings could emerge from BYOD. This would depend on how the business plans to compensate employees for their devices and plans. With device prices climbing above a thousand dollars, BYOD has the potential to save on device costs. Reimbursement checks would replace having a dedicated employee in charge of the wireless account every month. This would free several hours per month between ordering new devices, checking data overages, making payments, and working with wireless providers.   Disadvantages of Bring Your Own Device. If personal devices with company data are lost or stolen, it poses the risk of outside individuals gaining access to valuable company information. If an employee leaves the company without wiping the device clean of company information, they can continue use of company data without permission and the company remains vulnerable. Unsecured Wi-Fi poses a potential risk due to hackers gaining access to a company’s system or networks. Employees will be utilizing their personal device outside of work and unsecured Wi-Fi lurks everywhere from airports to coffee shops. Personal use can cause security complications in the form of viruses and spyware from miscellaneous downloads and applications. Tech support could be problematic with the different types of devices and systems.   The Verdict. There’s no definitive answer that works for every business, but there is enough information to decide what works for your unique business. BYOD is not something any business should take lightly. Where employee satisfaction and savings are potential advantages, security risk poses a potential disadvantage. A discussion with IT on security procedures could be a good conversation before considering BYOD. A formal policy would be essential to get started, but that doesn’t negate all risks.

                            [body] => Bring Your Own Device to School: Advantages & Disadvantages What is BYOD? We know that tablets and laptops are a part of a teenager’s life. Some schools have banks of tablets and laptops that are readily available to be used for a few classrooms. However, these schools are few and far between. Many schools can’t afford that much technology in one classroom. Schools have to be convinced that this investment is worth it. That’s why we’ve written this article to help you make your choice and work with us to provide your students with their own devices. BYOD stands for “Bring Your Own Device”. A trend in the professional world but also gaining a lot of popularity in many schools. The concept is simple; to create a 1:1 classroom where students can bring and use their choice of technological devices in the classroom. A ‘bring your own device to school’ policy can be a real advantage to both student and school. Benefits of BYOD. Your students know the device. Some students have a hard time getting to know other devices; their operating systems and how they work. In this case, students can use the device they use at home and are comfortable using it which increases their overall focus. Technology has so many possibilities. Devices nowadays are so much more than what they used to be even five years ago. Many students phones can handle so many more processes and data input/output that even a budget phone can access many websites, apps or programs that they could download. It’s cost effective. Of course, this is a main reason to consider BYOD. However, it is a good way for the school to save money on technology. When you add up the costs, you quickly realise that you can save a lot of money. Schools only need to concentrate on the students who need the funding. Learning outside the classroom. Students can take their learning outside of school hours. No longer do they need to haul bags around with them; one device and that’s all they need. With all the features, apps, websites and possibilities; learning suddenly becomes more engaging and fun. Respecting devices. Students will value the device they use because they are the ones who will have to replace it. They will care for them more because they are their own devices and respecting devices is actually preparing the students a lot for their futures. A little bit more responsibility at a younger age.  What are drawbacks of BYOD? Students without devices. BYOD is great if everyone has a device. Not all students can bring them to school and some parents may not approve or have the budget. Make sure you aren’t excluding a student and provide a device for those students by using our leasing services. Teacher training. What about the teacher who struggles with technology? Consider providing training by your IT team and/or IT department to all staff in your school. It doesn’t take long for all to be trained and it will change their workload in the long run. Different devices. This is an important disadvantage, as it is hard to enforce which kind of device to bring or buy. Everyone will have a preference and sometimes applications or software aren’t available on some devices. Many schools tend to specify a device such as Chromebook, iPad etc. For a bring your own device to school policy to work, everyone needs to have access to the same learning materials. School infrastructure. Is the school infrastructure ready for all of these devices to connect to the network? All of this can overload a wireless network. Make sure your network is ready by speaking to your IT staff and setting this up beforehand.  Are we ready to have a ‘bring your own device to school’ policy? Before you are ready to dive into BYOD, you should really ask yourself some important questions. Is it for you? Are your staff ready for a new way of working? Here is a list of questions we can help answer for you: When can students use their own devices? Well, when a member of staff asks them to. Ideally, a policy will be written for this and/or behaviour policy restructure based on the BYOD change. Which devices are allowed? Social media? Which apps do you want to ban or not allow? Are my students ready for the responsibility? Make some room for your curriculum for teaching students about the responsibilities. However, consider digital citizenship such as e-Safety, citation, copyright, information privacy, search strategies and rules for online discussion and social media. What procedures could we use? Well, since it opens a range of classroom management issues. If you haven’t noticed yet, more rules! Include a sign that means a raised hand means all devices down, different colours on a PowerPoint slide etc. These are easy to follow and all students would be required to follow them. How will it impact teaching? We feel that it a Bring Your Own Device policy may enhance teaching and not replace it. If you look at your curriculum to see where the device may come in handy, plan it in and allow students to use it. The goal isn’t to teach children how to use their tablets, phones or laptops but to use them as a medium to get to the information they need and the teaching you provide. How do we inform parents? What is their role? The device is owned by the student. This means that it is repaired, maintained and managed by student or parents. Communication is important so make a plan to keep parents informed and updated about their child’s learning. How can Maxxia help?

                            [body] => Work From Home Magnifies Advantages and Disadvantages of BYOD Advantages and Disadvantages of BYOD - Sixty-two percent of companies will have a BYOD (bring your own device) policy in place by the end of this year, according to a BYOD Business Strategy Survey. That's a huge increase from the 44 percent that allowed it at the end of last year. If you're thinking about adopting a BYOD policy at your company, you probably already know there are some divided opinions on the matter, especially when it comes to cost, trust and security. Let's take a look at the pros and cons of BYOD in the workplace: The Advantages: Cost, Flexibility & Better Tech. One of the biggest pros for companies to adopt a BYOD policy is the cost savings on hardware. According to PC World, by not having to supply staff with computers, voice or data services and the costs associated with them, business stand to save as much as $80 per month per user. Surprisingly, employees are happy to pay for the devices themselves, since they get to choose what they want to use. Most of the time, these are not additional purchases, because most employees already have a personal mobile phone and laptop. Since the employees are purchasing these devices, they tend to be newer and more cutting-edge, so the company benefits from the latest features. And the makers of mobile devices are prepared to bridge the gap between work and home—BlackBerry, for example, has technology that enables users to seamlessly switch between their personal data and their work data. This leads to increased flexibility and freedom for employees, which in turn increases job satisfaction and loyalty. The Disadvantages: Trust and Security. Network security is the biggest hurdle to BYOD. According to a recent SAN Mobility/BYOD Security Survey, more than 60 percent of organizations are allowing BYOD, but only 9 percent felt they knew what devices are accessing the sensitive data on their network. This is a huge issue. If the company issues the hardware, they know it is compliant with their IT standards, and they can mandate what their employees can and cannot do with them. When it is an employee's personal device that he or she bought, it becomes tougher to regulate. Plus, what happens when workers lose their devices? USA Today reports that in 2011, $30 billion worth of mobile devices were lost. Not only do you need excellent security procedures, but also a top-notch lock-down procedure in order to protect your data, including the ability to wipe devices remotely. And it is not just the employers that have trust issues. Employees do not want their bosses knowing the ins and outs of their personal business. A Mobile Iron survey revealed that over 50 percent of employees 18-34 years old were not comfortable with their employers seeing any of their personal data. The Solution: Transparency. If your company is going to adopt BYOD, make sure everyone in your organization knows what you expect of them and what they can expect of you. Have a strict policy that details who has access to what and what happens in the case of a lost or stolen device. Ensure that the approved devices can handle high levels of encryption but still give the freedom of a personal device. And most importantly, make sure these policies are enforced at all levels of the company.

                            [body] => BYOD: Pros and Cons BYOD: The Pros and Cons of Bring Your Own Device BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a concept which has been around for several years now. Nevertheless, we feel that it is a topic worth revisiting as the consumer-led IT revolution shows no sign of abating. BYOD is a simple concept, whereby employees bring their own device – laptop, tablet or mobile phone – to work instead of the company supplying them. It grew in popularity as a result of the culture shift that occurred within the field of Information Technology. These days, consumers are increasingly tech-savvy and tend to invest in the latest technology before businesses do. As a result, workers have increasingly sought to bring their own devices to work and, thus, the concept of BYOD was born. Here we will consider the pros and cons of BYOD for anyone unfamiliar with the concept, or those considering implementing a BYOD policy in their workplace. Pros. Some of the advantages of BYOD may seem obvious, from a business perspective. There is a clear financial incentive for businesses to allow employees to bring their own devices into the workplace. A considerable amount of money can be saved on the cost of hardware when employees supply their own PCs and mobiles. The latest technology can be utilised by businesses, without the capital outlay. A second benefit is the potential productivity increases that can result from a BYOD policy. Because employees are happy with their own device, and comfortable in its usage, they are likely to work more productively. When users connect their mobile devices to the company network, they are also able to work more flexibly – anytime and anywhere – which itself can increase productivity levels significantly. Also, the ability to use their own device can be of great benefit to disabled employees, or those with special requirements. In some cases, a simple difference such as the colour of the keys on the keyboard, or a different type of screen, can make a big difference to the user’s ability to work efficiently. Cons. Despite the clear benefits, there are many drawbacks to BYOD. Most of the issues can be addressed, but it will require effective planning, in order to avoid unforeseen problems. Probably the most significant disadvantage of BYOD is the potential security concerns it can bring. If you serious about implementing a BYOD policy, then you need to take measures to protect your company’s data and reduce the risk of malware. You should ensure that you have device management software that allows you to remotely wipe devices. This will protect you against data theft in the event of loss or theft of a device used for work purposes. You may also need to consider having some level of control over what can and cannot be done on your employees’ devices. This in itself, however, presents obvious problems. If your staff have invested their own money in these devices, it is likely that they may have some reservations about their usage being restricted. There can also be all sorts of problems when employees are using many different devices, with different operating systems and capabilities. You should consider whether your company’s software will be compatible across a wide range of platforms, and whether user collaboration will be impeded. It may be that you have to restrict the type of devices that are allowed under your policy. Some companies, for example, feel that Android devices may be more susceptible to attack, due to its open format. Therefore, they restrict their BYOD policy to Apple devices only. Then there is the issue of suitability. You would need to ensure that your employees’ chosen devices are appropriate for their specific work. This may mean that you need to restrict certain kinds of devices to certain departments. For example, a tablet may be great for one department and not so effective in others. Equally, there may be some departments where you don’t feel it’s feasible at all for staff to bring their own devices. This is something that you will need to consider before implementing a BYOD, to avoid unnecessary hassle later down the line. It’s also worth setting guidelines stating who is responsible for repairs and replacement devices – is this covered by the company, or should employees bear the cost of this? In sum, many companies get positive results from implementing a BYOD policy. However, it is vital to have a well considered strategy beforehand. You should make sure that you set the parameters from the very beginning, to avoid any issues later on. Consider how far within the company your BYOD policy should extend, what devices should be included and whether this will vary between departments. Also, ensure that you have every necessary security measure in place and that your employees are aware of any acceptable usage policy. Given that additional security measures will be necessary, you should factor this in as an additional IT cost that could offset some of the hardware savings you expect to make. On balance, there are more potential drawbacks to BYOD than there are advantages. However, these disadvantages can all be addressed with effective planning so, ultimately, it is up to you to decide whether the pros of BYOD outweigh the cons, in terms of your business.

Home:Cyber Edu:Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Cyber Edu What is Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)? BYOD Defined, Explained, and Explored Share. LinkedIn Twitter Facebook BYOD Defined . Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to the trend of employees using personal devices to connect to their organizational networks and access work-related systems and potentially sensitive or confidential data. Personal devices could include smartphones, personal computers, tablets, or USB drives. As more and more organizations support employees working from home, maintaining a flexible schedule, or connecting on the go while on work travel or commutes, BYOD solutions have become more prevalent. Some companies may sanction BYOD, while others may consider it part of “shadow IT,” which refers to software or hardware not supported by IT. Get top cloud application security with Forcepoint Cloud Security Gateway . Learn How Why is BYOD Security Important? . BYOD security is an important topic for organizational leaders because personal devices are likely to enter the workplace whether sanctioned by IT or not. In many cases, BYOD solutions can improve employee productivity and morale. But, left unaddressed by IT, personal device access to an organization’s network can present serious security challenges. How to Develop a Bring Your Own Device Policy . IT departments must address if and how they will secure personal devices and determine access levels. Most importantly, a defined BYOD security policy should inform and educate employees on how to employ BYOD without compromising organizational data or networks. Important elements of BYOD policies include: Types of approved devices Security and data ownership policies Levels of IT support granted to personal devices (if any) A strong BYOD security policy should be integrated with overall IT security and acceptable use policies. As IT leaders determine the level of support they will apply to personal devices, they must ensure a balance between organizational security and employees’ personal privacy. Use BYOD Security Solutions to Manage your Policy . A BYOD policy is best implemented and enforced with the support of a BYOD security solutions such as Forcepoint's CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker). With Forcepoint CASB, an organization can identify and categorize cloud apps to access risk and pinpoint which services to allow and monitor. In addition, the solution can apply unique access and security policies on a per-device bases by easily distinguishing between managend and unmanaged BYOD devices.  BYOD Pros and Cons . The advantages of supporting BYOD within your organization include: Higher employee productivity, according to a study that shows a 16 percent boost in productivity over a 40-hour workweek* Increased employee job satisfaction and retention through supporting flexible work arrangements Increased employee effectiveness due to more comfort and speed with their own devices Upgraded technologies are integrated into the workplace without IT spend on hardware, software licensing, or device maintenance Disadvantages of employees using personal devices on the job could include: Possible data breaches due to lost or stolen personal devices or employees leaving the company Lack of firewall or anti-virus software applied to personal devices Possible IT cost increases if the department determines they will offer support to personal devices Lack of network Key Takeaways . BYOD solutions can potentially create efficiencies in the way employees work. However, they also introduce vulnerabilities in the network through accessing sensitive data on unsupported and/or unsecured personal devices. BYOD has both advantages and disadvantages, but its growing ubiquity means that all IT departments must be aware and proactive. Policies on BYOD management are becoming more prevalent within organizations and are important to addressing what can be a daunting security challenge.   *enterprise-cio.com Related .

                            [body] => The Advantages and Disadvantages of BYOD The latest IT developments and the improved use of cloud technologies allowed the company’s employees to leverage and use their personal devices to access their business system and data. This job productivity has resulted in Bringing Your Own Device (BYOD) program, making sharing knowledge and full tasks more straight forward for the workforce. BYOD stands for “Bring Your Own Device” for those who might not already be familiar with it, and it applies to the practice of enabling workers to bring and use their own computing/mobile devices—smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.—within the office to be used for work purposes, including allowing them to link to the secure network of a company with these devices. Looking at surveys, most organizations around the world have allowed BYOD to take advantage of what it provides to some degree. These include maintaining employee satisfaction, reducing the cost of infrastructure, increasing quality, and opening up opportunities to innovate. Nevertheless, BYOD’s growing popularity can be difficult to secure remote work, as transferring corporate data to the cloud is a dicey business when data is not adequately secured. The myriad use of smart devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables by employees also paves an entry point for cybercriminals to exploit and hack systems designed to target corporate data. Several businesses have seen a lack of visibility in even simple mobile applications like email, according to a survey. So, organizations need to understand and monitor user behavior at all endpoints to safeguard BYOD. And if they don’t, companies are vulnerable to unauthorized data sharing, malevolent access, and unable to recover or delete downloaded data from devices lost or stolen. Here are some of the top security techniques businesses can use to secure BYOD. Mobile Device Management (MDM). The management of mobile devices is used to describe the administration of mobile devices. Imposing security controls around the business-owned computers is usually preferred by large corporations. MDM incorporates the process of introducing, monitoring, securing, integrating, and managing devices in the workplace, allowing companies to achieve their organizational network while maximizing mobile app features. But, if the right resources are not in the right place, it can be challenging and time-consuming for a business. Mobile Application Management (MAM). Mobile application management software helps businesses to introduce and execute business policies on mobile devices. Unlike MDM, MAM generally focuses on protecting enterprise-provided applications involving confidential data. It offers a more granular way for IT managers to monitor and secure business data that is essential to BYOD. Since bringing your own device framework has increasingly paved the way for organizations, MAM is sometimes used to secure access to mobile data. Despite this, it has its own drawbacks, since it does not protect, some prominent cloud apps like Gmail, Dropbox, Slack, among others. Agentless Mobile Security. Agentless mobile security solutions secure the data without having to install something on an employee device. Such systems have the potential to provide MDM functions such as data loss prevention and the remote wiping of business records. Companies such as Bitglass, which is an agentless CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) provides organizations with full visibility and control over their data, even when accessed from personal devices. CASB is a policy implementation point that includes data protection on any system, anywhere in the cloud. As cloud services and BYOD usage grow, the prevalence of agentless solutions will also continue to increase. Recent Articles. Important Things To Consider Before Buying Industrial Vehicles.

                            [body] => Use of Personal Devices at Work: The Advantages and Disadvantages February 19, 2021/0 Comments/in News /by Diego Lopez If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that the world of work is changing. Instead of driving to the office, many people are working from home or in co-workspaces. Meetings once confined to one room are now online. These paradigm shifts have opened up a pandora’s box in the corporate world of business where employees are now requesting to use their personal devices. Whether using their own smartphones, tablets, laptops, or other portable devices, employees are now engaging in work in different ways. In this article, we’ll breakdown the benefits and drawbacks of using personal devices in the workplace. Advantages of Using Personal Devices. As we head into 2021, employees are opening up more about their feelings of using their own devices for work, whether it be from home, at a co-workspace, or the office. Here are some of the advantages of having employees utilize their own personal devices: ● Happier Employees – Nothing beats the familiarity of working with your own device. You know all the ins and outs of your programs, are comfortable with the keyboard, and understand how to troubleshoot any problems with your device. A study by the “social market foundation” shows that happy employees are 20% more productive. ● Productivity – According to a Forbes study, 49% of employees say they are more productive with their own devices than using company devices. ● Lower Costs – Employees using their own devices is a win-win for companies. According to a CISCO study, the average expenditure on devices for each employee is $ 3,150 per year. The cost savings over the long-term can be monumental for businesses. ● More Efficient Tools – Typically, employees are more likely to upgrade their own devices. Often, personal upgrades far exceed the technology provided by companies. In turn, employees are more efficient with their devices. ● Simplicity – Keeping tabs on one phone’s messages is much easier than juggling messages between separate devices. By merging their devices with their work, it speeds up channels of communication. Most companies wouldn’t disagree that having happier, more productive workers while saving costs is a significant benefit to using personal devices. However, even for all its advantages, there are some drawbacks to using personal devices in the workplace. Disadvantages of Using Personal Devices. Along with the pandemic and working from home, there have been some significant struggles that businesses have had to deal with when using personal devices for work. Here are just a few: Problems with Standardization – Let’s face it! Some people are PC people, while others are loyal to Macs. Some people swear by their iPhone while others love Android. While this is fine on a personal level, it can create some business challenges—especially when implementing new software. In order for it to work, it would have to be cross-compatible. It would also be a nightmare for IT solutions.Security – Even small businesses have become susceptible to cyber attacks. When people use their own devices, companies are left trusting their employee’s own cybersecurity. That’s an issue. Not only that but if you have a lot of employees, your risk is even greater.Employee Privacy – While employees like to use their devices for work, there is still the issue of privacy. The boundaries of work and personal life become blurred when companies have to choose between security and privacy. The more security you place on an employee’s device, the less privacy they have.Legal – Storing private company data onto a personal device can cause some legal problems. For instance, if potentially sensitive data falls into the wrong hands, whose fault is it? The Right Choice for Your Business. Only you know the right choice for your business when it comes to using personal devices at work. However, we hope that this list of pros and cons helps with your selection. https://chaac.tech/coralapp/wp/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/BOYD-1.png 615 1690 Diego Lopez https://chaac.tech/coralapp/wp/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/coralapp-sitelogo-red.png Diego Lopez2021-02-19 14:32:182021-02-24 18:30:29Use of Personal Devices at Work: The Advantages and Disadvantages 0 replies Leave a Reply.

But as employees inevitably hop between corporate tools and personal applications on their own devices, their actions introduce a number of possible risks that should be managed and mitigated with careful consideration.Find out moreRelated Product. RMM. Support, manage, and protect with an RMM solution that scales as you grow.Find out more This article will outline of some of the most significant risks associated with allowing the use of personal devices on company networks, so MSPs can take them into consideration when implementing these policies for themselves and their customers. The rise of BYOD. It’s important to acknowledge how widespread BYOD practices have become in the workplace. Here are a few notable statistics about the increasing popularity of the trend and its growing market: According to a recent report, the global bring-your-own-device security market accounted for $68.810 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $252.290 billion by 2026. 61% of Generation Y workers and 50% of workers over the age of 30 believe their personal tech tools are more productive and effective than the ones they use in working environments. Similarly, 60% of workers use a smartphone for work, while 31% of workers want to use one. A Cisco study noted that companies leveraging these practices benefited from an average of $350 in savings for every employee, each year. Companies allowing employees to use their personal technology tend to save a significant amount of time, with portable devices saving employees an average of 58 minutes each day and improving productivity by 34%. BYOD practices certainly have some potential benefits, but they also can carry with them legal, cultural, and practical challenges. What this means For MSPs. The new trend means the role and responsibilities of MSPs are more complex because they often have to manage numerous customer networks and employee-owned devices, as well as juggle different policies for multiple clients. Fortunately, there are tools available that can help MSPs address the challenges associated with supporting employee-owned devices. Dedicated tools can help businesses achieve greater control over best practices, affording employees and companies access to the benefits of BYOD while mitigating the disadvantages. Top BYOD risks. If your business does decide to allow employees use of their personal mobile devices for work purposes, you should be aware of the following risks: 1. Data theft. If you let your employees use their own devices unchecked, it’s likely that some of the personal applications they use may not be as stringent with their security requirements. If an account they have for personal use is hacked, it could ultimately end up exposing corporate data and confidential information. Cybercriminals are always looking for opportunities to steal potentially valuable corporate data, and improperly managed personal devices can provide the perfect opportunity. BYOD software can help MSPs significantly reduce the risk of data theft by allowing technicians to gain visibility into managed devices in order to spot suspicious activity or monitor application usage. 2. Malware. Employees use personal devices to download various types of information and files, such as PDFs and applications. If an employee isn’t carefully distinguishing between valuable corporate data and data used for personal purposes, this could compromise security. For example, an employee might download a game to their mobile device that carries a hidden virus or malware. This malware could then be passed onto the company network when the employee next logs in from the infected device. Implementing strict usage policies can help mitigate the risk of malware infiltrating corporate systems. 3. Legal problems. The reputation of a business, particularly an MSP, can be irreparably damaged in the event of a security breach. Customers expect MSPs to protect their devices—so if an employee-owned device results in a leak or breach of corporate data, this could have serious ramifications, including the possibility of litigation. Defending against legal challenges can be extremely costly and may even bankrupt smaller organizations. This is why MSPs need to be proactive about precautions when it comes to establishing BYOD practices for their clients. Furthermore, we highly recommend you work closely with legal counsel on developing any documents around bring your own device policies. 4. Lost or stolen devices. If an employee’s device is stolen or goes missing, the best-case scenario is that this is an inconvenience. But in the worst-case scenario, you’re dealing with a complete disaster. If the employee wasn’t following corporate security protocols when using their device, loss or theft could cause a major breach. For instance, the employee might be storing their passwords (both personal and corporate) in an unsecured notes application, which would make it easy for someone who acquires the device to hack corporate accounts. Even if the employee followed policy down to the letter, hacking technology has become so sophisticated in recent years that a robust password or fingerprint authentication requirement may not be sufficient to keep them locked out of the device. Mobile device management (MDM) software can provide a solution to this problem, often allowing companies to remotely wipe the device so hackers don’t have the opportunity to access sensitive data. 5. Improper mobile management. When a staff member leaves an organization, a vulnerability can be created if they continue to have access to company applications from their personal mobile devices. To help ensure an employee can’t continue to access a system or app after they leave the company, it is crucial that companies are able to reset passwords and revoke access as soon as the employee is no longer authorized. If a security breach does occur, a company should also have systems in place to enable them to track down the device responsible. 6. Insufficient employee training. Many security issues and breaches are caused by human mistakes. This usually happens when an employee doesn’t fully understand the corporate policy, particularly when it comes to the importance and details of device security. When training employees in device security, you should consider how best to disseminate information. For example, you might implement quarterly training sessions or have an employee read and sign a document stating they are aware of company policy. Keep in mind that insufficient training will likely result in unnecessary employee errors, which could compromise your company’s security. 7. Shadow IT. Shadow IT involves information technology being managed outside of the company’s IT department without their knowledge or permission, and is a mounting concern in business environments. This happens more than you might think, as 80% of workers admit to using SaaS applications at work without getting approval from IT. When employees bring in consumer-grade technologies and products without the supervision or management of the IT department or their MSP, a number of problems can be created. Any software or hardware an employee introduces without your review or approval introduces a potential risk, whether that’s a USB drive with potential malware on it or an open-source application with low security standards. Safeguarding your MSP against the risks of BYOD. Despite the associated risks, it doesn’t look like the BYOD trend will go away anytime soon. In fact, whether or not companies implement a policy around the use of personal devices, it is almost inevitable that employees will bring them to work and connect to the corporate network. As such, it is crucial that MSPs and other businesses take steps to proactively reduce their risks. The best way to achieve this is by leveraging all-in-one MSP software with built-in features for managing mobile devices.

Some schools have sets of iPad, good infrastructure and enough Chromebooks for a few classrooms. But those schools are few and far between in many regions. Many schools can’t afford that much technology in one classroom. Schools have to be convinced that the investment is worth it. That’s why I am going to talk about an upcoming trend. BYOD. What is BYOD? “BYOD” stands for “bring your own device”. It’s a trend in the professional world, but it is also gaining popularity in many schools. The concept is simple. With BYOD you are creating a 1:1 classroom. Students bring and use their choice of technological devices in the classroom. I can see you frowning your eyebrows. “Bringing their own devices? How can that possibly work? What if they have all different devices and something goes wrong? How can I manage that?” Don’t worry, we get to that later in this blog post. Pros and cons of BYOD. The benefits of BYOD. 1. Your students know the device Some students have a hard time getting to know a new device or a different device than what they use at home. In this case, students can use their own device, which is very comforting. It means that students can use it without any hassle. As a result, they’re able to focus more easily on the lesson. Students also take control of ensuring that their device is working. In that case, you don’t have to be a technology expert. 2. Technology has many possibilities Devices have capabilities which were hard to imagine a few years back. These features make the process of taking in lessons easier for students. On top of it, the technology also helps them to retain information longer. Of course, students have to know how everything works. Using their own devices helps them learn more effectively. 3. Cutting-edge devices Has your school ever had a case full of iPads or Chromebooks that need to be updated, work very slow and actually are ready for the junkyard? Well, with BYOD, students' personal devices tend to be more cutting-edge. It makes it easier for schools to stay up-to-date with technology. 4. Cost-effectiveness Of course, this would be the main reason why schools implement BYOD. It’s a good way for the school to save money on technology. When you start adding up the costs, you quickly realize that schools can save a lot of money. Now we’re just hoping that those savings go to something else important! Schools can now concentrate funding for the students who need it. For example: setting up a device leasing program. 5. Learning outside the school hours Students have all the lesson material and exercises right where it needs to be, on their device. Even when they take it home, they can’t look over it.??? With all the features and apps, learning is more engaging and fun. Students are more likely to continue learning at home, outside the school hours. Of course, this is not something you can expect from every student! 6. Respect for the device Students learn to handle devices with care. They tend to do this more with their own devices, than with devices from someone else or from school. This is also important in preparing them for the future. They get a greater responsibility at a younger age. 7. Organized students As the title suggests, students will be more organized with all their lesson material and assignments all in one place. Imagine a world without heavy school bags that are just mobile unorganized garbage cans. Wouldn’t that be awesome! The disadvantages of BYOD. 1. Students without devices BYOD may be as good as it sounds, but you have to be careful too. Not every student has a device that they can bring to school. Some parents won’t approve or some just don’t have the budget. Make sure you aren’t excluding this student and provide a device from school. Be aware of the students' needs here. Be careful about what you tell your students about this. This information may be very delicate. 2. Left-handed teacher What about the technology dummy? Okay, your students may know their own devices, but in some cases their knowledge doesn’t reach far enough to overcome bigger technology problems. You’ll need some help of the head of IT. 3. Different devices This a very important disadvantage. With BYOD, is is hard to enforce students to bring or buy that one and the same device. Everyone will have a different device, with different possibilities and services. Other, codes, other browsers and another way of working. Applications may not be universal across all platforms. As I have already written above, this will make it not easier for you either. This is why in many schools “BYOD” is actually “Bring Your Own iPad” or “Bring Your Own Chromebook”: in other words, schools mandate that students buy a particular device. This keeps tech support issues to a minimum, while still being budget-friendly for the school. Expect push-back from some parents though, particularly those that recently bought a different device. 4. Overload Is the school’s infrastructure ready for this many (different) devices? All these mobile devices can overload your wireless network. Make sure your school is technically ready for BYOD, and your IT staff is properly trained. 5. Parents In some schools, parents have to pay the school for leasing or renting a device. They are accustomed to the traditional way of teaching and some of them don’t see the value of it. Parents may not be happy with the idea of paying for mobile devices. A lot of them only see the computer or iPad as more distraction. 6. Distraction Of course, there is some truth in what parents think about mobile devices. Because of the fact that the students' devices are their own, it is much easier to get distracted. They have games on them, apps, social media, etc. You have to put good rules in place to manage all of this. Here’s a tip on making rules: let your students participate in choosing rules. They will follow them better if they were the ones who made them! Here are some tips about how you can manage social media in your classroom. 7. The responsible student Remember when I said that using an own device, makes students more responsible? Well, there is a downside to that though. What if the student isn’t responsible enough? And that is absolutely normal. It’s still a kid! Students might forget to charge their device, or even worse, they might forget to bring it to school. Then what? Make sure you have a backup plan! Am I ready to use BYOD? Before you are ready to dive into BYOD, you have to ask yourself some important questions. Is BYOD something for you? Are you ready for this new manner of working? Here are some things you have to keep in mind: Question 1: When can students use their devices? What can they do with it? And where can they use it? Before you let your student use their device, make sure to think about some rules for yourself and for your students. Which mobile devices and applications are allowed? Which are not? What about social media? Take a look at your school’s policy, but don’t let that completely determine your own expectations. Question 2: What do my students know about the dangers of the internet and internet safety? Netiquette? Make some room in your curriculum for teaching your students digital citizenship topics. Topics may include copyright and source citation, information privacy, search strategies, and rules for online discussion and social media. Question 3: What procedures will I use? How do I manage my classroom? BYOD opens up a whole new world of classroom management issues. If you haven’t noticed yet, everything revolves around rules. Include a sign like: raised hand means all devices down or something like that. Let them know that you want their full attention. Question 4: How will BYOD impact my teaching? How often should I use them? Mobile devices can enhance the learning, not replace it. Take a look at your curriculum to see where the device might come in handy. Take notice of clear goals for how the devices will be used. The goal is not to teach the children use iPads or Chromebooks. The devices are just a medium. Question 5: How can I keep up with technology trends? There are so many edtech educators that can give you some advice. You can always join online social networks of technology teachers, listen to podcasts, read blogs, etc. Here are 15 blogs any teacher should know about. Question 6: How will I inform parents? What is their role? The mobile device is owned by the student. That means, that it must be maintained, repaired and managed by the student or parents. Communication is very important. Make a plan for keeping parents informed and updated about what their child is learning and what the role of the device is in that learning process. I hope these pros and cons and important question can help you right on the way. Of course BYOD is a lot more than this.

BYOD has become so popular that about 65% of employees already use their personal devices at work. But before you jump on the BYOD bandwagon, it’s important to learn about the pros and cons to help you decide whether it’s the right choice for your business. Reasons So Many Businesses Love BYOD. BYOD can benefit your business in several ways. Many companies adopt BYOD because they want to: Save money by shifting hardware costs to employees. Improve employee productivity. Make their employees happier. Have access to the latest technologies. According to the most recent research from Cisco, BYOD saves the average company $350 per employee each year. Access to their own devices also saves each employee about 81 minutes per week. Employees already know how to use their smartphones and laptops, so they don’t need additional training. Furthermore, they feel happier using their own devices because they already feel comfortable using their functions and can customize them to their own preferences. The Cons of Bring Your Own Device. Unfortunately, companies can run into problems when they let employees bring their own devices to work. Some of the most common issues include: Lost devices, which slow down employees until they can get replacements. Security leaks that can give outsiders access to confidential data. Unauthorized apps that may contain malware. Employers also lose some control when they start BYOD programs. Suddenly, you might have to deal with a dozen different types of devices and operating systems. Employees who quit their jobs may take important information with them. Workers may put your network at risk by visiting questionable websites. Just like employees may bring illnesses to work, they could also bring computer viruses. Solving the Problems of BYOD. Most businesses don’t have IT teams large enough to handle all of the problems that can arise when employees start bringing diverse devices to work. That doesn’t mean you should dismiss the advantages of BYOD, though. A managed service provider (MSP) can help you take advantage of the benefits while you minimize the disadvantages of BYOD. A reliable MSP can do several things to protect your business from BYOD’s risks. Some of the most helpful services include: Cybersecurity monitoring that identifies and eliminates threats quickly. Configuring, deploying and managing devices so that you retain some control over them. IT consulting that helps you create a BYOD policy that reduces threats without making employees unhappy or less productive. A required virtual private network (VPN) that encrypts data sent between mobile devices and servers. An MSP can also help you do things like segment devices so employees can keep private and business files separate; use geofencing that blocks access to data when employees leave the office building; and remote wipe lost devices so you can remove sensitive data before someone finds it. Get the BYOD Help Your Business Deserves . The specific services that you need to maximize BYOD’s benefits and protect you from its disadvantages will depend on the type of business you operate and the kind of data you want to secure. Without an individualized plan, your BYOD plan may fall short of your expectations. Contact AxiaTP to learn more about how managed IT services can help you take advantage of BYOD’s benefits while avoiding its disadvantages. The experts at AxiaTP will take a personalized approach designed to meet your company’s needs. Related Posts.

In banking, these concerns can be catastrophic due to their high-value and the nature of the data they secure. In 2019, a hacker breached mega-bank Capital One gaining over 100 million personal data records. Capital One customers suffered, the bank lost credibility, and invested significant financial resources in new cybersecurity systems. According to the New York Times, a year later, the bank paid $80 million to settle federal bank regulator claims that it lacked sufficient cybersecurity. The banking industry is changing due to COVID-19-related remote workforce growth and increased online client traffic. According to Forbes, during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, bank employees’ global mobile device use increased by at least 80%. And, that trend is likely to continue. Digitization is not new to banks. Even before COVID-19, banks sought efficiency and increased customer satisfaction in modern technology. However, many companies had to accelerate digitization efforts when the pandemic hit, often without comprehensive transformation plans. One of the most significant banking industry changes was the rise in a remote workforce. For CISOs and cybersecurity teams, this created considerable risk and exposure. According to recent Aite Group research, 94% of attacks on banks originate through employee phishing emails. As more employees use mobile devices to conduct bank business, they put enterprise data and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) at risk. Human behavior is also a concern, and opening an infected email is all too common. Employees worry about the pandemic, and bad actors capitalize on this. In March of 2020 alone, COVID-19-related phishing attacks increased 667% over February, and those numbers have only gone up. Banks must find strategies to protect and secure their systems and customers. Some banks protect this data by implementing a mobile security solution and supplying company-issued devices or establishing personal device use protocols with a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. When building an effective policy, banks should consider the BYOD advantages and disadvantages and how different mobile security solutions impact successful implementation. Generational Growth to Meet Consumer Needs. For decades, the banking industry has sustained the physical spaces and the on-site transactions they represent. Paper money and checks are less relevant today, and banks are adapting to the paradigm shift. According to a recent DepositAccounts survey, 91% of Americans are banking virtually, including 81% of baby boomers. The smartphone platform attracts most remote banking customers due to its convenience. Simplified sign-in processes, intuitive interfaces, and real-time information make app-based banking a popular option. According to a JD Power study, in 2020, 30% of banking consumers set up new accounts online or through a mobile app. Website and mobile platforms improve banking efficiencies. Digital platforms are always open, pandemic or not, twenty-four hours a day. These platforms handle high customer volumes and are precise with transactions and records. They are also relatively inexpensive to maintain, upgrade, and market. These advantages, coupled with their rising consumer popularity, make mobility a strategic investment for banks looking to grow. How Mobility Meets Banks’ Remote Work Challenges – BYOD Advantages. Mobility not only meets customer demand but also addresses banks’ operational and business objectives. An effective mobility solution and BYOD policy enable widespread remote productivity opportunities. Banks can access a larger and more diverse and competitive talent pool. Employees don’t need to commute, saving time and resources, and employers save on hardware and overhead costs. BYOD programs save banks on costs associated with company-issued devices and maintenance. Employees typically cover personal device service plan expenses, though some employers contribute to those costs under specific BYOD policies. BYOD programs empower workers to be more efficient. Employees benefit from a simplified platform, seamlessly moving between work and personal life on the same device, and banks benefit from faster communication and real-time collaboration. BYOD Security Considerations. While industry indicators show financial institutions benefit from the remote-banking shift, there are security factors to consider. Digital adoption rates are increasing, with the smartphone platform leading the charge. Meeting these customers online is a remote team of banking employees reliant on mobile technology. Deploying resources to meet the demands of a digital office space can be a challenging endeavor. Mobile devices are vulnerable to attack, break, and are lost or stolen with regularity. Enabling a remote workforce with mobile devices is a strategically necessary step to remain competitive in today’s banking industry. Securing these devices is essential for banks to take advantage of mobile devices’ efficiencies and protect critical consumer and enterprise banking data. Mobile Device Management: An Imperfect BYOD Solution. Mobile Device Management (MDM) has been the traditional BYOD solution. However, it has drawbacks. While MDM can offer high local security levels, allowing control of the entire device, including the hardware, MDM programs have high upfront, ongoing maintenance, and administration costs. While company-issued devices are rare today, banks may implement MDM by purchasing devices for their workforce. The initial outlay cost varies considerably based on purchased device quality and workforce size. For MDM allowing personal device use, a common budget-conscious approach, banks must manage, maintain, and update thousands of individual, often out-of-date and unsafe devices. MDM only protects devices, not data. These limitations force banks to rely heavily on strict, often overreaching BYOD protocols, including complex usage policies, service entanglements, and privacy concerns. Also, MDM tries to confine the BYOD device to banking standards. The attempts come with performance, privacy, and security issues by dragging performance down and forcing IT administrators to completely wipe all business and personal data if a security issue arises. Banks manage MDM BYOD programs with invasive remote command and control features that allow IT administrators to surveil devices and read and manage device data. These security methods risk personal and business data exposure and create liability and regulatory issues. MDM BYOD programs depend on employee adoption and adherence, though strict protocols result in employee mistrust, circumvention, or rejection. MDM also requires banks to provide support, service, or, in some cases, personal device replacement. Even if banks implement and maintain a BYOD program with MDM, data protection ultimately depends on employees. This broad risk factor triggers regulatory concerns, which creates more hurdles.

                            [body] => The Pros and Cons of BYOD vs. a Company Owned Tablet Today, CIOs and enterprise leaders are faced with deciding which mobile device strategy and infrastructure best suits their business: BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device, is the practice of allowing employees of an organization to use their own smartphones, or tablets for work purposes. COPE, or corporate-owned personally-enabled, is a model in which organizations provide employees with mobile devices, and allow them to use the devices for their personal use as well. CYOD, or choose your own device, is the practice of providing a selection of pre-approved devices for your employees to choose from to use in and out of the office. While many companies started with BYOD, the current trend is shifting to COPE devices because of the concerns over security, legal issues related to control vs. user privacy, and IT compatibility. Employees with BYOD devices may be putting company data at increased risk. A recent study by the Wall Street Journal Custom Studios and Symantec, Keeping Your Data Safe: Protecting Corporate Information in the Cloud, determined that 51-percent of employees think securing corporate data is the job of the company IT team rather than their own responsibility. The report also found: 79% of employees admit to engaging in risky behaviors—intentionally or unintentionally—that place corporate data at risk 48% of employees don’t think about security risks when transferring files or sharing documents over cloud-based services As businesses think about making the shift from BYOD to supplying their own custom devices – either COPE or CYOD – it’s important to understand the advantages and disadvantages of the two strategies. Through years of experience customizing and supplying tablets for enterprise and education, Minno has identified the pros and cons of BYOD v company-supplied devices that should be considered when moving your business into the connected anytime, anywhere mobile environment. MINNO Download Our White Paper. The Pros and Cons of BYOD vs. a Custom Device. Download Now BYOD vs COPE/CYOD Pros and Cons:. Security BYOD: BYOD policies may expose companies to more security vulnerability and legal liability through personal use habits like downloading risky apps, OS versions not being updated with patches, weak or no password protection, and conflicts between company control and user privacy. When an employee loses a device, the data on it may be viewable to anyone if a PIN or password is not set. Employees may also be reluctant to report a lost or stolen device to the company for remote wiping if they have personal photos or data on it. COPE/CYOD: Many companies today want to have control over devices to manage employees and data security. MDM software is increasingly being used to know where devices are, how they’re being used, and to wipe devices remotely, if necessary. A corporate-owned device, provided to employees and governed by company policy, reduces conflicts, and minimizes vulnerabilities from risky sites, public networks and downloading questionable files. Legal and IT BYOD: From a legal standpoint, BYOD policies may create a legal minefield of issues related to employee privacy and potentially legal discovery v corporate control of data, devices and policy. COPE/CYOD: The initial investment in hardware may be high, but cost savings can be captured over time because a consistent hardware platform is easy to support, enables optimization of software for the platform, and an employee provided device leaves no doubt about ownership and control of both the device and the data on it. A device customized for business can be optimized and better secured, allowing for better control of data and the ability to tailor its use to prevent intrusions onto the device. Unnecessary and possibly vulnerable features can be locked out, making the device a business tool, rather than an open platform. Cost BYOD: In theory, BYOD reduces capital investment costs because employees are using their own devices. Also in theory, the employee is handling updates and maintenance of the device they personally own. In reality, corporate IT costs may well outstrip the capital savings because the IT department must make corporate systems work across many platforms, operating systems (iOS, Android, or Windows), and variance in hardware. Furthermore, the business no longer benefits from bulk purchasing discounts and vendor partnerships. COPE/CYOD: Custom tablets are built as tools for a company, so they can be designed with only the features a company needs for its business functions and other peripherals can be excluded or locked out to minimize cost and vulnerabilities to hacking. The cost of providing custom devices for employees is often offset by bulk buying power, optimization of software for a single device, and long-term cost savings on IT. Software development costs can be minimized by releasing large new software versions only when technology replacement allows for higher performance devices to run new versions of software which may require more processing power and memory rather than trying to develop and update software across many variant devices. Corporate Culture BYOD: Employees may like and be familiar with their personal device. But some employees resent companies making them use their personal device, perceiving it as subsidizing the company with their own device use. Also, some employees feel it creates an unfair advantage for employees that can afford higher performance devices than those who cannot. COPE/CYOD: All company-provided devices are equal, employees view the COPE device as a benefit, and there is a reasonable expectation that the company will have control over the device and data security and that corporate policies be followed when using it.

Oct 28, 2014 • Features • Hardware • PAul Adams • BYOD • hardware • solarvista The great BYOD debate is one that has been raging in field service for some time and it shows no sign of abating. Here Paul Adams of Solarvista takes a look at both sides of the discussion...  The BYOD (“Bring Your Own Device”) debate is one that has received much coverage in recent months with some in the service sector as well as other industries arguing that BYOD is the only way forward for businesses looking to compete effectively and offer the most efficient customer service and increased employee satisfaction. But what is BYOD? What is the impact on the business, the workers, and the customers? A complete move to BYOD is not going to be right for every business in every service sector, but a lot of businesses may already be partaking in some kind of BYOD scheme without even realising. For example, if employees have access to company emails on their personal mobile phone or tablet or another device then this is, in effect, BYOD. In fact research has found that globally 60% of full-time employees use BYOD to some extent. (Gabriel, 2013) So what actually is BYOD? Simply, “Bring Your Own Device” refers to employees having the ability to connect their own technical devices such as smart phones, laptops and tablets to the company’s network instead of using a device owned by the company. Recent years have seen an influx of workers bringing their own personal devices into their work environment and using them in their everyday jobs (Millard, 2011). In fact, 95% of employees have used their own device in work (Gens et al, 2013) and the majority already use their own personal device for a variety of work-related tasks, including communication, content creation and admin (Ellis et al, 2012). What are the advantages and disadvantages? There are a number of advantages to BYOD for both the user of the device and the company employing that user. However, the other side of the debate – the potential pitfalls that a company may face because of BYOD – tend to be less obvious. Below are some examples, but not an exhaustive list, both from the user and business perspective. Advantages Personal choice Better work life balance Improved productivity No cost for equipment Decreased support and training costs Disadvantages Financial responsibility “Always available” Loss, theft or damage Information and network security Increased support costs [quote]58% of IT security and audit experts view employee-owned devices as a security risk to the enterprise.   Conclusion. BYOD represents the tipping point from corporate-led IT to consumer-driven IT; corporate IT now significantly lags behind the consumer market (Millard, 2011) and this has had a dramatic effect on the desire of employees to use their own devices at work. It is a trend that is set to continue throughout 2014 and beyond. Over the last couple of years, these devices have become integrated into everyday life for most people as result of the ‘always on’ nature of social media and the 24/7 online world. With the lightning speed at which technology is progressing it is maybe neither cost-effective nor practical for businesses to update their employees’ technological devices as often as both the company and the employee might wish. Therefore, BYOD has become the natural solution to this problem. However, there are a number of key considerations when implementing any kind of BYOD scheme in the workplace. Most notably these are around security; of your company’s data and networks, of access to your systems and around confidentiality. The use of industrial-strength security approaches, such as Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory, is important to deliver this with confidence. [quote]One size increasingly doesn’t fit all in terms of tools and technologies for work. The challenge is for the IT department to ensure their business is secure.   Also, there are a number of functionality and cost implications worth noting. If you need particular functionality from your devices that is only available on expensive corporate hardware, then BYOD may not even be applicable at the moment. Here at Solarvista, our new line of cross-device mobile apps offers a good feature set but it will be mid-2015 before the sheer volume of functionality is available on all platforms. There are big challenges ahead in ensuring the business remains secure whilst also adopting working methods that are becoming ever more prevalent and popular. It is important to know that BYOD, according to the experts, isn’t going anywhere. Therefore there should be no rush to implement it without giving proper consideration to all the ways it will affect your business, your employees and ultimately your customers.

                            [body] => BYOD IN THE WORKPLACE | BENEFITS & DISADVANTAGES WHAT IS BYOD? BYOD stands for ‘Bring your own device’, which is the action in which employees bring their own devices for use in the workplace. Workers can use their own devices, such as mobile phones and laptops to access company information and applications. In this blog article, I will go through the advantages and disadvantages of a BYOD scheme for businesses. Towards the end of the blog, there will be a summarised table going through the benefits and issues, as well as a few links to government websites giving guidance on the topic. BYOD BENEFITS As a business, you could make huge savings as workers will bring their own devices, cutting down on hardware cost. As a bonus, most devices that workers bring are better than what was originally provided. Employees will feel more comfortable and satisfied by using their own devices leading to increased morale and work productivity. Employees will be able to work at home if they’re unable to come into work, or in any location. BYOD ISSUES One of the biggest disadvantages of a BYOD policy is that there is a risk to security. Employee devices won’t have the advanced security measurements that your office hardware may have. Sensitive data could be at risk. One issue is that company information and applications will need to be compatible on employee devices, adding cost. In the office, all devices may be strictly Windows PC’s whereas employees may have Mac devices that may not work with company files and applications. You also have little to no access to your workers’ devices, meaning you have no real way to monitor how company information is handled or used. Now imagine if an employee holding sensitive company information loses their device on the bus, for example, or if they no longer work for you. Still, there’s no knowing what someone is going to do with that information. With a BYOD policy, you are putting pressure on your employees to bring devices. What if they don’t want to bring their own devices into work or they don’t have any so they need to buy them? Employees will have to spend even more money on replacing lost or damaged devices. Policies will need to be made and employees must agree with them.  . SUMMARY TABLE – BYOD IN THE WORKPLACE – BENEFITS AND ISSUES.
