Bring your own device (BYOD) means “bring your own laptop, tablet or smartphone to work and connect it directly to the company’s data”. Keeping abreast of the changing face of the workplace can mean disaster for your business. Many job seekers and employees prefer an environment where their devices will be integrated with the company’s systems, making BYOD much safer. It can significantly increase productivity or expose your business to risk.
Should an employee’s device contain sensitive information and that phone gets lost, you’ll be exposed. Should an employee leave the company, that information might no longer be safe.
There are technologies that can support such an open environment. Attix5 supports you by protecting against lost data. It’s up to you to decide what should be protected, Attix5 takes care of the rest.
