It’s no longer a secret that the consumerization of IT is here to stay, so you may as well embrace it. You may not want to admit it, but you already have a few “outlaws” in your organization who are using their own devices, regardless of whether you allow them to or not. In fact, you probably have entire departments accessing email, apps and data on devices and through services that are not secure. Cowboy consumerization is here…and it’s here to stay.  The challenge most organizations face now is how to transform their organization for BYOD success yet keep corporate data secure with a complete EMM solution.

When business information is accessed by personally owned, consumer-grade devices, the right foundation is essential to ensure IT control. The challenge is not only where to begin but how do you ensure BYOD transformation ADDS (Assess – Design – Deploy – Support) up to success.

It’s should support any BYO device that is mobile outside and inside the walls of the organization and align with key business initiatives such as flexwork, telework, business continuity, secure and compliance.
