We perform back-ups daily. We perform maintenance weekly. We conduct security audits quarterly. We test our business continuity plans annually. How often do we revisit bring your own (BYO) programs? For many, it’s not often enough.  In response to BYO, organizations need to ensure that they have combined policies, procedures and technologies to protect their information assets in an evolving threat landscape regardless of where electronic information is used or accessed.

There’s no time like the present to step back and revisit your BYO program.  Whether, it’s increasing popularity of a new mobile device, changes in privacy laws or regulatory requirements, new mobile apps a business unit plans to introduce or some other reason, BYO programs should be refreshed.  My colleague, Chris Campbell, is presenting a webinar series titled Transform your environment for BYOD success. In this series, Chris will take you through evaluating your environment, preparing your infrastructure and meeting the requirements of users while protecting business information. Register Now for Transform Your Environment for BYOD Success Webinar Series – runs October 9 through November 18.
Chris will guide you through a BYO strategy that makes sure that you’re considering the full range of requirements for both users and IT. People expect seamless, convenient access to their enterprise data and apps on any device, with a user experience that’s even better than they’re used to in their personal lives. IT needs to be able to provide the right level of control, protection and compliance for each type of data without placing undue restrictions on the ways people choose to work. Citrix Workspace Suite offers the comprehensive capabilities you need to support your BYO strategy, including XenMobile for MDM, MAM and containerization; XenDesktop and XenApp for virtualization; ShareFile for secure data sync and sharing; and NetScaler to secure, control and optimize service delivery to mobile devices. By making effective use of the available models and technologies for security and application and data access on mobile devices, you can deliver the comprehensive mobility strategy your organization needs today and in the years to come.
