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.
