Impacts and Recommendations

  • Finding a balance between cost and security is difficult for CIOs looking to implement BYOD schemes
  • Assigning devices to employees based on their job title rather than the requirements of their job could have a negative impact on user satisfaction and productivity
  • The rapidly increasing trend for bringing personally owned devices into the workplace, combined with the declining cost of security solutions, is leading CIOs to embrace BYOD in a structured way
