Enterprise Mobility Management

Symantec

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) remains the Gordian knot of workplace technology. While firms have tried to label and co-opt the unstoppable propensity of employees to use their own devices for work as a way of cutting the business’s technology costs, they are paying in other ways.

Mobility offers any device, any time, any place productivity appealing to both enterprises and employees. But that same flexibility comes with challenges – protecting corporate data on devices, separating personal and corporate information, managing diverse operating systems, and preventing devices and apps from becoming another attack vector.
