The essential components for a BYOD strategy include:
- App store – Help people securely access the apps they need on the devices they choose. Provide a seamless, HD experience across device, locations and networks.
- Secure access – Support compliance and data protection with access control, auditing and reporting.
- Enterprise mobility management – Give IT identity-based provisioning and control of apps, data and devices. Keep business apps and data separated from personal apps and data on the device.
- Windows apps and desktop virtualization – Provide Windows apps and data as on-demand services to any device. Maintain centralized data protection, access control and user administration.
- File sharing and sync – Make it easy for people to securely share files and sync files across devices. Keep business content secure with policy-based control, data encryption and flexible storage options.
- Collaboration – Give people the ability to work together from anywhere effectively with tools that allow them to join meetings on any device, attend virtual training sessions or create collaborative online workspaces.
- Remote support – Centrally support people and technologies in any location to ensure consistent uptime across the organization.
A defined BYOD approach gives people the freedom and flexibility to work productively on any device they choose while also simplifying IT management and security practices. Implement a BYOD policy at your organization to start reaping the many benefits of this growing trend.
