Language:  English

Traditionally, enterprise IT has frowned on the use of company-issued smartphones for personal purposes; likewise, it has prohibited the use of personal smartphones on the corporate network. It's a best practice that addresses security concerns and that is widely advocated by CIOs and mobile computing experts. But smartphone-wielding users have starting pushing back, wanting a single device to handle both the personal and professional aspects of their lives.

This white paper addresses how businesses and employees can compromise between personal and business smartphone use, as well as benefit by establishing personal-liable smartphone policies such as:

  • Establish and enforce passwords
  • Control network access
  • Allow or disallow application use, including corporate mandated programs for filing expense reports and such
  • Restrict use of the smartphone as a USB flash drive
  • And more
