It shouldn't be surprising to hear that the 'bring your own device' movement continues to accelerate, with 74 percent of companies already using BYOD or planning to do so, according to a Tech Pro Research study. It would appear BYOD is being adopted at a faster rate among smaller companies over corporations, due to multiple layers of bureaucracy and significant security concerns.




Many companies interested in adopting BYOD policies must do so quickly yet carefully, as many of their employees likely use smartphones and tablets for work-related activities. Security, IT concerns, lack of control over hardware, and loss of device standardization top the list of reasons why companies have ruled out BYOD adoption.


Trying to create BYOD policies, which should help increase employee productivity and reduce costs, remains a difficult process.
