BYOD, or bring your own device, is a corporate policy that empowers employees to be more mobile — to make their world their office. Put simply, BYOD encourages use of personal devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables) to access enterprise data from anywhere. BYOD policies can range from relaxed to restrictive:
1. Users are given unlimited access to all corporate resources.
2. Access is granted for only non-sensitive systems and data.
3. IT is allowed selective control over the personal device, such as apps and data.
4. A corporate persona or container is used to restrict data storage on the personal device.
