Implement a successful bring-your-own device (BYOD) program

Let employees use personal devices with better security

There’s a reason so many employees want to use personal devices at work: it increases productivity by an impressive 34%.1 There’s just one problem. While a BYOD solution can be a great way to let employees decide which devices work best for them, it can also put your corporate data at risk. An astounding 75% of employees don't know how to prevent cybersecurity breaches, and the amount of staff that puts company resources at serious risk continues to rise.2 If you want to provide the power of choice, you’ll need to build better BYOD security and ensure your sensitive data stays safe.

Foster freedom—without IT stress

Did you know that 2 out of every 5 employees use personal devices that aren't monitored by IT?3 With the right BYOD security policies in place, those same employee-owned endpoints can become an asset instead of a liability. Citrix Endpoint Management lets you protect business-related activity without having to invade individual privacy. Thanks to a mobile application management (MAM) solution that allows IT to isolate corporate apps from personal ones, you can easily protect company data without touching employees’ personal information.
