BYOD or Bring Your Own Device is the latest trend especially in the IT industry, where employees are allowed to bring their personal devices such as tablets, laptops, smartphones and USB drives to their workplace. These devices are connected to the corporate network so that the employees can work through their own preferred devices. This trend is very effective in reducing the costs of the organizations as they can save a whole lot of money on buying such devices for their employees. At the same time, BYOD increases the security risk of the organization if these devices are not managed properly. Hence most organizations resort to hiring BYOD management services that not only increase the productivity but also offer utmost security to the corporate networks and data.

Pros and Cons

Pros and Cons of BYOD:

Most organizations today have embraced the concept of BYOD or Bring Your Own Device because of its cost-reducing benefits. Although there are quite a few risks in this, the benefits still outweigh them.

Pros of BYOD:

  • Improved Productivity: BYOD offers employees the convenience of using their preferred devices while at work. If the devices they have are of advanced technology work can be done in a much faster way too. Sales executives can access their emails and review important documents on their own smart phones while they are traveling.
  • Cost Savings: As employees use their own personal devices like laptops, tablets or mobile phones here, the company can save a lot on buying such devices for its staff members. There are some that even use their own data plan for business purposes. In such cases you can save even more.
  • Improved Morale: Being able to use their preferred devices improves the morale of the employees. This will lead to overall employee satisfaction which will automatically mean better efficiency.

Cons of BYOD:

  • Security: The biggest risk of BYOD is security. Unless the company adopts a proper BYOD policy there are chances that its data and network can be compromised. There may be situations where an employee who has corporate data on his mobile or laptop may lose his device, which might put such data into wrong hands.
  • Tough to Control acceptable use: When a company issues a laptop or a mobile device to an employee, there will be an acceptable use policy the employee has to adhere to. However, in case of BYOD it could be tough to control how an employee uses his/her personal device.
  • Data Retrieval problems: With BYOD there is always the risk of what happens to your company data when an employee leaves your company. How exactly will you discontinue the ex-employee’s access to your company’s data? Clients may even contact their number directly. If your ex-employee joins your competitor things can become even more risky.
