"Thou shalt register all devices with the manager to whom you report."
IT departments dealing with the BYOD (bring your own device) challenge are facing tough decisions on how to manage the array of devices and operating systems that employees want. The vast majority of tech managers say the trend is causing "huge problems" when it comes to network access and lost and stolen devices, and they want new rules to ensure IT security. A new report from Janco Associates explores the BYOD phenomenon and gives IT teams a set of proposed policies and procedures that will help minimize risk and potential operational disruptions. "Blocking the access to the wealth of resources available to personal devices inhibits productivity and competiveness," says Victor Janulaitis, CEO of Janco. "At the same time, allowing access without a set of rules puts the enterprise and its resources at risk." The Janco report discusses how these devices should be backed up, secured and even destroyed, if necessary. For more about the report, click here.
