BYOD: Implementing Mobile Devices in Your Company

Building a good mobile device policy is your best tool for successful BYOD implementation.

tom stockwellWritten by Thomas M. Stockwell

High-function/low-cost mobile information devices have changed the corporate IT environment in mysterious ways, not the least of which is a culture of "Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)."


BYOD is a growing phenomenon by which corporations permit employees to use personally owned mobile devices (laptops, tablets, and smartphones) in the workplace and to use those devices to access privileged company information and applications. This new paradigm would have been an anathema to security auditors only few years ago, but now BYOD has become the up-and-coming trend for managing data with portable devices.

As Windows established itself as a rational business desktop, we started wanting, needing, and fantasizing about creating a new generation of AS/400 applications that offered Windows user interfaces with pull-down menus, check boxes, and radio buttons. Using Windows in those early days gave most of us GUI fever.
