BYODNovember 20, 2013
While the majority of IT specialists say their companies support bring-your-own-device (BYOD), a recent survey indicates they don’t use tools or policies to protect corporate data, Bank Systems & Technology reports. The Zix Corporation and Ponemon Institute survey found that 56 percent of respondents say their companies seek to replace current BYOD solutions. “Companies are swiftly adopting BYOD to enable work productivity and create efficiencies but are hitting significant road bumps in cost, security and employee concerns,” said the Ponemon Institute’s Larry Ponemon, CIPP/US. Meanwhile, one security expert cautions against the pitfalls of BYOD policies, including a once-size-fits-all approach.
