Today’s über-connected employees love their smartphones, tablets and personal PCs. Two hundred million employees bring their own mobile devices to work — and an increasing number of them want to use those devices on the clock as well as off. Are you ready for BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices)?
Dell exec Steve Lalla called his Dell World 2012 breakout session “BYOD: Don’t Be Afraid” for a reason. Here’s an attention-getting statistic: 50% companies allowing BYOD have experienced a security breach. That’s enough to make the average IT pro cringe – and maybe even try to turn back the clock. Too late! As you can see by the numbers below, employees are going to use their own devices to connect, even if they have to violate corporate polices to do so.
Take a deep breath. You can balance end-user flexibility with IT control, and we’re way ahead of the curve on helping organizations manage devices while protecting corporate data. Lalla’s Dell World presentation spells out the facts and figures, then highlights the Dell approach to BYOD. Take Dell PocketCloud, for example. Employees enroll their various devices (phones, tablets, home PCs) into a cloud application so they can view, organize and share the content from wherever they are. And that’s just one example. Take a look at Steve’s presentation, then review our wide range of BYOD solutions and learn how you can make BYOD seamless while keeping it safe.
