BYOD empowers employees to use their personal smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables to access enterprise data from anywhere. To maintain security, organizations must balance restrictions on sensitive company data with user productivity. A BYOD solution will allow IT, a corporate persona or container to control who has access to BYOD and to what data. With more remote workers than ever, having the right technology and a well-thought-out BYOD policy and BYOD management in place has become an imperative.
To maintain a good security posture for BYOD policies, an organization would need to manage devices by combining modern and traditional management while supporting nonstandard devices at the same level as standard ones. They must also overcome the risk of compromised credentials and be able to detect infected devices that are attempting to connect to corporate apps and data.

Learn how the path to UEM can increase endpoint security
When employees can use their personal devices, you empower them to do their best work, whether they are at home, in a meeting or on the go. Users have a level of comfort in accessing work data on a personal device, and BYOD allows them to integrate work into their daily routine. Programs can be developed for both enterprise BYOD and SME companies.
BYOD programs can have the added benefit of saving your enterprise budget by shifting hardware costs to the user. You can say goodbye to corporate bulk purchases of smartphones or tablets, and to the tug of war that tends to happen when employees exit the workplace and need to leave a favorite device behind.
To drive maximum adherence to BYOD policies, employees need to know that you are protecting their personal use and privacy with your end-user license agreement and that the organization has the tools to enforce security programs and BYOD security solutions.
Take control of iOS, Android, macOS, Windows and Chrome OS devices—from smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops to ruggedized and internet of things (IoT) endpoints. MDM offers granular device policy and remote support to help customize device deployments for any use case.
UEM solutions continue the evolution from EMM and MDM to provide a single solution for all device types. They add mobile threat defense (MTD), AI insights, single sign-on and conditional access to provide a robust risk management posture without disrupting employee productivity.
Without adequate and proactive protection, devices and their users are particularly vulnerable to conventional cyberattacks. These same endpoints and the employees behind them are helping fuel innovation and productivity for the world’s most competitive organizations. Learn how mobile security keeps devices, apps, content, data and the network protected so modern business can thrive.
