While BYOD seems like a smart arrangement for both employee and business, there are a number risks involved that may reduce the company's upside.
The Bring Your Own Device boom is all the rage for companies looking to reappropriate expense. It can be a great way for the business to make better use of budget dollars while allowing employees the freedom to stay connected with their beloved devices. But giving so many outside devices access to the company network can have some unintended consequences which can quickly reduce any benefits the company set out to receive.
The below considerations and infographic from Trend Micro takes a look at what potential issues organizations operating a BYOD network need to address if they're going to recognize the true value of the BYOD paradigm.
These are just a few examples of the risks companies choosing to go the road of BYOD must consider before getting started. As bad as these troubles may be, however, when done the right way, the benefits of soundly instituted BYOD practice still overshadow the potential pitfalls.
It's clear that for a successful BYOD practice, companies need to also adopt rigid security and data control processes if they hope to recognize the full spectrum of gains in the BYOD movement. If you company is looking to adopt the trend it's going to involve much more than weekly changes of the network password.
